Few sights hold as much interest for the amateur cyclist as the weaponry deployed by the pros.
Our recent trip to the early-season Iberostar Challenge Mallorca gave us an opportunity for an extended view of the machinery being used by the biggest teams in cycling, including the world’s number ranked squad, Movistar.
Rotor’s new chainsets, tyres from Continental, and a further inspection of the Merida Reacto Evo (with more to come) ridden by the world champion, Rui Costa, are among the items in our latest race tech gallery from the Balaeric isle.
Campagnolo’s move to an internal battery for their EPS electronic drivetrain, old friends and new for the WorldTour, and the measures adopted by Grand Tour champions to carry essentials when deprived of the luxury of a team car, also feature in the gallery below.
RoadCyclingUK attended Challenge Majorca with race sponsor Iberostar, staying at the Iberostar Playa de Muro hotel in Alcudia. For more information visit www.iberostar.com
