Nope - Sam Bennett (5th in S3 of ToB yesterday). Joren also runs LWs (as do I).

I find it interesting that LW don't have much to do with sponsoring cycling (in an official sense), but they sponsor triathletes - http://www.svenja-bazlen.de

To be fair - more like a 100km road race that happens to climb 3500m! I think I would be wearing glasses given that. No SRM which is interesting given he is one of the few FDJ guys who races with one and looks to be his training bike (front and rear lights might be more reasonable to get rid of!)

Maybe he was in town doing something else and figured "yeah, might as well sign up for this thing" :noidea:

Well spotted!

Borrowed team issue Lapierre with Di2? Seems unlikely. Would imagine one of his training bikes.

I'd say it's his training bike but he has borrowed wheels.

am I to only one not liking Lightweight wheels?

look at this picture and imagine it with Zipps 303 or even 202, or nice Mavic Cosmic carbon ultimate, or some medium profile Hed or Enve

Nope, I think they are one of the ugliest wheels around, but others will still drool over them anyway. It's a personal thing, so no point arguing. :)
