Winner (MPRO) - Andrew Starycowicz
Winner (FPRO) - Jackie Hering
Unfortunately, Jackie proved a little too hard to shoot on the bike, and we ended up with just one out of focus shot of her BMC TM01. All I can say is that I would NOT want to travel with that bike. The internals really tricky to work with.
TJ Tollakson's Custom Rig
Many people will notice the carbon arm cradles that TJ has been riding since as early as 2011. These wrap his arms in a ton of surface area, and provide elbow support for his high-hands position. His idea is a one-off just for him, but we are working on something similar to provide to the masses. The other really interesting thing to notice on his bike is that he is using a hydraulic disc brake on his rear wheel, but a mechanical rim brake (our own Omega X) up front. According to TJ, it's for 'aero oprimization.' His words, via instagram.
