Paris-Nice-2016-tech-trek-factory-racing-emonda-madone01

This year, the Trek Factory Racing team picked up Italian coffee brand Segafredo as a co-title sponsor, and the rider’s bikes get a new sticker rather than a completely new paint scheme. That suggests the bikes carry over from what we saw at last year’s Tour de France. But we only saw the Madone there, no Emondas (at least not the days were were walking the pits), so we nabbed a few pics of those and lots more at the final stage of the 2016 Paris-Nice road race…

“Trek Factory Racing” is now stickered over to be “Trek / Segafredo”. Some of the riders taped the course’s climbs and checkpoints to their top tube, others to the stem.

Speaking of stems, there was a mash up of lengths used, and some riders opted for the one-piece aero bar/stem that comes with the high end Madones.

The Madone (left) uses a different brake cable port piece with integrated number plate mount. The teams’ Emondas, however, got a custom piece bonded onto the seatmast that held a number plate mounting bolt. You won’t find that in the showroom.

Team water bottles are marked with “X” for sports drink, and left unmarked for water.

A little electrical tape was wrapped around the computer’s mount as insurance against it bouncing off over bumpy roads.

BMC RACING

BMC Racing’s team bikes didn’t have anything we hadn’t seen before, but this one is Richie Porte’s. He had a solid breakaway effort with Contador on the final stage, but (Spoiler Alert!!!) ultimately they were reeled back in.

COFIDIS – SOLUTIONS CREDITS (ORBEA)

Cofidis brought Orbea back into the top tier of the pro peloton last year, where their bikes were adorned with new FSA brakes and stems (and a whole lot more FSA stuff, too).

Their bikes are running SRM power meters on the FSA K-Force Light BB386 carbon cranks. The Vision Metron 40 carbon wheels get a little help from electrical tape in silencing valve stem rattle.

A dual pull design gives FSA a contender in rim brakes, and other than actual shifting and tires, all components on the bike are from FSA or a sibling company like Vision.

Well, OK, saddles and bar tape are from Prologo. This one’s former boxer Nacer Bouhanni’s special 140mm carbon stem.

Handlebar is the FSA Plasma Integrated Compact.

Special touches include a carbon fiber number plate clamp and two-tone handlebar wrap (using two different rolls),

One of the riders had a GoPro Hero4 camera attached via a K-Edge mount.

Kenda SC (Service Course, presumably) tubular tires are team only and have no consumer model name branding to hint at what they’re testing.

Lots more tech from the race coming soon – stay tuned!

BMC Time Machine; if there ever was a pro bike where form didn’t follow function. Such a fantastic ride, but so grotesque!

Form follows function means that aesthetics are compromised over function…so form did follow function.

My personal opinion, not everyone’s. Our shop is a BMC dealer and we can’t keep enough Time Machines and Gran Fondues in stock. I’m fully aware of the love for these bikes, I just can’t look at them too long or I’ll turn to stone. 😉

What’s a dual pull brake, and it seems pretty obvious that it wasn’t that some iders opted to use the one piece stembars from the madone. It was that some riders opted to use the madone. It’s also pretty obvious there were bikes other than madones, since most of them are domanes.
