Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking - Which Cannondale to buy?

I am a fairly new biker, interested in a bike I can use for long distance riding, racing and triathalons. I was looking at the Cannondale R1000 but do not know how much of a difference there is between the R1000, R700 and R900 and if the price difference was worth the better components. Any suggestions, comments or help would be greatly appreciated as I am eager to start riding.
try searching the road cycling and triathlon threads.
The road and tri-threads, agreed, is where you should be searching. In brief, though, do buy the 'Dale with the best frame. Components should always be a secondary factor. As a racer, you're gonna replace them left and right, but the frame is your main investment.
And, oh yeah, do also buy a Cyclocross bike. They are so much fun (and Cannondale does make a nice one!)
