Cervelo is one of triathlon’s most iconic -and loved - brands, and this week we have a fantastic interview for all you bike geeks out there - an interview with one of Cervelo’s founders, Phil White, and Anna Dopico, who’s commercial banking and project management background brought expertise to Cervélo.
We hear the whole story, from designing the first Cervelo prototype as a college project in their basement, through growing the company one bike at a time, often selling bikes from the back of their car at expos in the early days, through the design of the iconic P2, P3, P4, P5 and P5X.
