I believe thats Michael Valgren (Team Cult Energy at the time, now Tinkoff). Both riders weren't pros at the time. But they are now ;)

Mirsamad Pourseyedigolakhour from Tabriz Petrolchemical, winner of Langkawi.
That team's been riding those same pairs of wheels for years. Durability is clearly not an issue.

I thought the 10spd Lightweight wheels with DT Swiss type hub were not compatible with 11spd by just changing the body?

With any DT Swiss hub you just need a new freehub in my experience.

You can change the freehub to 11spd, the wheel will be out of center. There's a detailed list of models and how different speed freehub bodies affect each wheel somewhere on the Lightweight website.

He is probably using an 11 speed Campagnolo cassette

  • 10s wheel + 10s freehub body => 130mm wide, the well known setting up to now
  • 10s wheel + 11s freehub body => 131mm, wheel is 0,5mm off center to the left, when using 21t or 23t cassettes derailler may contact spokes (only with sprint rear wheel)
  • 11s wheel + 10s freehub body => 131mm, wheel is 0,5mm off center to the right
  • 11s wheel + 11s freehub body => 131mm (spacer needed to use 10s cassettes here, spacer is part of purchased parts package)

- Ventoux could be critical as well, as they are 24spoked. The "contact area" are the knots where the spokes are bended together...
- 0,5mm off center does not really matter... many wheels come off center and you would never realise during riding. Lots of frames might be off center as well..

One of the Caja Rural riders was possibly on Lightweights (with FFWD stickers) on todays Vuelta stage 19. He was at the back of the Contador group going onto the Alto Monte Faro climb. I can't search for pics cos I'm at work at the moment, but it looked like Amets Txurruka.

Could be the same wheels Luis Leon Sanchez was using in the past days.
