Since the Orbea Terra isn’t fabricated with Di2 ports, the team guys had to get creative with the wiring, using the cable pulley to direct it toward the front derailleur.

The shadow line visible behind the headtube is a white casing hiding/protecting the wires before they head south to the battery.

what kind of tires? since they are still in europe: what kind of tyres?

Internal cable routing would rock this bike.
Less tape!

LomaAltaMater, it looks like a Michelin Mud2 tread glued onto a tubular casing, custom made… Alright for some… ;D

Pretty sure that’s a Dugast Rhino, but with black sidewalls (sharpie?).
I want to see a close up of the chainring, it doesn’t look like the normal 46t dura ace chainring that some of the other pro’s run.

Those are Dugast Rhinos with blacked out sidewalls. Trick I learned is you put black dye in with the aquaseal and its pretty much a one step sidewall treatment/blackout

also the ring is a shimano ring. Its basically a 7800 ring, with 7900 caps/chainring bolts to appear seamless with the crank

anyone catch the fsa bb with dura-ace cranks?

They’re using FSA press fit cups because shimano only still makes standard external threaded bb, and they don’t rock the oversize spindle on their cranks because they claim it’s less torsionally stiff. FSA makes a myriad of different bearing/cup combinations for various “standards”.

I hope Shimano makes those caps available to the masses.
