Thomas primarily uses a BTA bottle up front, as well as the Shiv's integrated Fuelselage hydration system. Sadly, the Shiv isn't the cleanest bike when it comes to Di2 cables, but this is an area shielded by the arms and BTA bottle, so the aerodynamic impact is probably minimal. But I wish it looked cleaner.
Jesse Thomas just got a brand new 2013 S-Works frameset, freshly built for the 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada. We got an exclusive look around the bike just as the Specialized mechanic, who calls himself the "Spider Monkey," was finishing up the build.
Fireworks erupted at Oceanside when Andy Potts and Jesse Thomas came down to a sprint finish. On the women's side, Heather Jackson put the hurt down with her blistering run to take the win. Check out our supersized race-day gallery inside.
