Campagnolo just rolled out their '06 line including some new linear pull cantilever brakes:

First flat bar controls, now cantilever brakes, is this leading up to Campy's return to the MTB market? Let the speculation begin...
'Cross mate, cyclocross.

Check out the pros they ride with ***** brakes and all 'cross bikes have canti brakes. If you haven't tried it, the season will be upon us shortly. There are a bunch of good races up your way.

That was my first though as well, but my understanding was that most 'cross bikes are set up with older style cantilevers rather than the linear pull type because the cable throw works better with road levers. Of course if it weren't for the UCI, we would probably be drooling over Campy discs by now...
