Mystery Cannondale frame

I got this frame from my uncle. I have searched Cannondale's "Vintage site" with no luck. I was hoping someone could help shed some light on this for me.

-the head sticker says this bike came from the 2000-2006 era.
-the "cannondale" sticker is vertical... never seen that before
-there no serial number underneath the bottom bracket part of the frame
-it has vertical drop out.
-aluminum frame
-fits 700 wheels, with a cantilever rear brake setup.

can anyone tell me anything about this frame>? year name etc.

Saeco is an old European racing team so would not mind betting that this is just a special paint job on a standard model of the era when Saeco were racing.

Cool, a CAAD4* 'cross bike!

*Was it the -4 that had those extended dropouts?

The cantilever studs are, of course, for cantilever brakes (unless they're for V-brakes), the two cable runs under the downtube are more commonly associated with road shifter/derailleur setups, and the rear brake cable on top of the top tube -- instead of underneath -- means that it's meant to be carried on the shoulder.

... Well, that's my guess, anyway. Maybe the lack of SN# means it's a team or prototype bike.
