The 2019 Tour de France served up one of the most exciting editions in recent memory, with 5 riders who had an honest shot at overall victory going into the final day in the mountains. It also served up one of the most diverse list of stage winners in a very long time. Perhaps due to dominating performances from sprinting greats like Mark Cavendish and Marcel Kittel, we were accustomed to seeing repeat winners. This year changed the script, as each stage saw a new winner until Julian Alaphilippe won his second on Stage 13, and Caleb Ewan took out his second win of the Tour on Stage 16.
On Sunday, the diminutive Australian, who was slow out of the gates, proved that he was the fastest sprinter on the 2019 Tour de France, winning the final stage on the famed Champs-Élysees. While all other sprinters in the race struggled for one stage victory, Ewan nabbed three in his maiden Tour de France, provoking comparisons to Mark Cavendish based both on sprinting style and dominance.
The Noah is Ridley’s aero road bike, and although Ewan rode a rim brake version, Ridley offers the Noah and the Noah Fast in both rim and disc brake models with a variety of build options.
Ewan's bike was outfitted with a lust-worthy Campagnolo Record EPS drivetrain, and in keeping with the gold-standard build he uses an SRM power meter and a PC8 computer.
Campy’s Bora Ultra wheels and a Deda handlebar and stem round out the build on today’s winning stead.
Gaerne G.Stilo shoes and aero socks helped Ewan get the job done today. He also wore an HJC Furion helmet, the company’s aero road helmet, and Rudy Project Defender glasses.
You can’t go fast until you look fast, and while it may take some time to pedal as fast as Cabel Ewan, you can get to work on the fast look a lot sooner. Check out the rest of the gear that won the day.
