Jesse Thomas just won an unprecedented SIXTH Wildflower Long Course in a row. The 'man with the aviators' has been coming back to this race year after year proving he's still the man to beat on this historic course. For the past few years, he's been riding our Omega brakes, and this year has just moved onto our Alpha X aerobars. Due to a previous neck injury, Jesse can't ride the super-low positions that some other pros do. He has to be able to look up the road without craning his neck so much. As a result, he rides a little higher, and has found that a high-hands position works best for him. We sent him our prototype tilt harware for Alpha X, which he bolted on and immediately loved. He told us that the bars offer 'a super clean interface and the bars felt stiff and aero. Really happy with them.'
