Dylan Groenewegen and Elia Viviani are fast men, but for the second time this Tour, they weren’t fast enough to beat Lotto—Soudal’s Caleb Ewan to the line. The 25-year-old Australian road and track racer won Stage 16 of the 2019 Tour de France, out-sprinting Viviani, Groenewegen, and Peter Sagan. Unlike his teammate Thomas de Gendt, who won Stage 8 on a Ridley Helium SLX, Ewan won Stage 11 and Stage 16 aboard a Ridley Noah Fast.
The Noah is Ridley's aero road bike, and while 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.
FastForward wheels and 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, their version on an 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.
