A GIRO STAR

Procycling - - Probike -

While most of Di­men­sion Data’s speed mer­chants – riders such as Mark Cavendish and Ed­vald Boas­son Ha­gen – tend to favour Cervélo’s more aero­dy­namic S5, Omar Fraile, the team’s top climber, opts for the R5 which is a featherweight all-rounder. The Spa­niard rode it to a well-de­served vic­tory on stage 11 of the Giro. He out­sprinted a group that in­cluded Rui Costa and Gio­vanni Vis­conti. An­other R5 fan is the vet­eran Bern­hard Eisel who’s called it the “per­fect bike for stage rac­ing”.
