Pro bike: Simon Gerrans’ Scott Plasma 5 time trial bike

The TT bike on which Simon Gerrans claimed the first maglia rosa of the 2015 Giro d'Italia

Orica-GreenEDGE delivered on their tag as favourites to win the opening team time trial of the 2015 Giro d’Italia – and this is the Scott Plasma 5 on which Simon Gerrans claimed the first maglia rosa of the race.

Gerrans led his Orica-GreenEDGE squad over the line in San Remo as the Australian team registered the fastest time on the 17.6km course.

That put the 34-year-old into the leader’s jersey, ending a nightmare start to the season which saw Gerrans suffer a broken collarbone in January and a fractured elbow in his first race back, Strade Bianche. Gerrans then crashed twice during the defence of his Liege-Bastogne-Liege title and abandoned, but escaped serious injury.

The Plasma 5 is the latest edition of Scott’s time trial/triathlon bike, launched in July last year. We stopped by the Orica-GreenEDGE team bus after the team time trial to run the rule over Gerrans’ bike.
