Kielne is one of a very small number of athletes NOT using aerobar-mounted hydration. Instead, he uses just two bottles, both of which are attached to a Beaker Concepts carbon fiber Hydrotail, behind his saddle. This is certainly a workable solution, but perhaps Kienle could save a couple Watts by moving one bottle to a BTA location.
One of our favorite types of features are the ones that take a close-up, zoomed-in look at the actual setups pros are racing with. This year, we noticed that more and more pros are turning away from the traditional aerodrink-type bottles that dominated the field for a solid decade, and are moving towards BTA setups that we've discussed many times here on TriRig.
