Wout Van Aert solo win in Strade Bianche!
Wout van Aert of Vision sponsored team Jumbo-Visma has won the fourteenth edition of the Strade Bianche. The twenty-five-year-old Fleming arrived solo after a one-man show at the Piazza del Campo in Siena, riding with Metron 6D Integrated carbon handlebar, an alternative solution to the top seller Metron 5D
THE METRON 6D
The 6D features internal cable routing, with guides that accommodate wiring for electronic shifting. Mixing aerodynamics and ergonomics, the unique shape includes our Aero-Ergo central section Reinforced carbon fiber construction gives a great strength-to-weight ratio.
BETTIOL TAKES THE 4th PLACE
Alberto Bettiol of EF Pro Cycling put himself in contention to take the win with Metron 55 SL Disc wheels. A strong attack from Bettiol at 20 km to go unfortunately didn’t last, and it was Van Aert’s with less than 10 km to go who reduced the group down even further. Bettiol eventually lost contact with Formolo and Schachmann on the final climbs into Siena, achieving the final 4th place.
Fabrizio Guidi, EF Pro Cycling Sports director said about the bike and equipment:
“It was really chaotic. There were many crashes, there were many flat tires, and we were really lucky to have really great equipment. Our sponsors really pulled through and we only experienced a few mechanical issues out on the road. We were probably the best team out there today in terms of dealing with equipment. No crashes and few flat tires even though it was a very nervous and hard race, as expected. We dealt with everything in a good way and the riders remained calm from the start. They executed perfectly and at the end of the day there’s only one winner and we just weren’t that team today. Onto the next one!”
