Laurent Didier began his eighth season in the WorldTour and his sixth with the various incarnations of the Trek-Segafredo outfit at the Tour Down Under. The team started the season on the same bikes as 2016 and we took a look at the Luxembourger domestique’s Trek Emonda.

Didier rode a 60cm frame equipped with a Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 9070 groupset. 175mm cranks were paired with 53-39 chainrings and equipped with a SRM power meter.

The colour coordinated build is a predominantly red design, with bold white decals and gumwall tyres.

Gumwall tyres may not suit everyone's taste, but they certainly stand out

Trek’s component brand Bontrager provided the stem, handlebars, handlebar tape, saddle, and the Aeolus 5 wheels were partnered with 25mm Veloflex Roubaix tubular tyres.

The Emonda features an integrated seat mast, which is cut to length and was completed with a Bontrager Ride Tuned carbon seat mast cap.
