Wind-cheating tech from the start of the 2015 Giro d'Italia

The 2015 Giro d’Italia got underway on Saturday with a 17.6km team time trial from San Lorenzo al Mare to San Remo – and we were there to check out the tech on display at the start of the first Grand Tour of the season.

The team time trial is a unique discipline in cycling, combining pure power and aerodynamics with the team work and cohesion required to get a group of riders across the line in the fastest time possible. Orica-GreenEDGE triumphed on the day, putting Simon Gerrans into the first leader’s jersey of the race. We’ve profiled Gerrans’ Scott Plasma 5 time trial bike here.

Flick through the photo gallery below to see what else we spotted in San Remo, including Brett Lancaster 58-tooth chainring (!), SRAM’s yet-to-be-released wireless electronic groupset, wind-cheating bikes aplenty, and much more.
