Wide bars particularly appropriate for sprinting. Could be discarded around a Track in favour of aero.

And Brajkovic on Mavics after I thought all specialized sponsored teams had to run the SWorks shoes. Turns out not so.

They're extra Di2 shifters located on the flats so he doesn't have to move his hands from the flats back to the hoods or drops to shift while climbing. They're particularly popular at the cobbled classics due to the amount of time spent on the flats.

I love that track sprinting photo. It sort of makes it clear how absurd it is 57 kg climber-types being concerned about handlebar stiffness.

I bet that handlebar stem combo of chris hoy weights a ton and has plenty of stiffnes, and it's also extremely aero.

its his position man, its just too bad to be successful road cyclist.

Honestly after so much debate about it, I've got to admit that although non-traditional, it certainly does not impair Ryder's ability to f*cking roll.

misread your post so edited....

I think it's partly the optics of him being 6'2" a bonerack and riding a 56... and it's evolved for sure. He used to have a more traditional setup and you have to think they (he and slipstream) would note changes in output with changing position.
