Rossella Ratto's Cannondale Supersix Evo Hi-Mod

Extreme stem angle for the Italian Cylance Pro Cycling rider

The final stage of the Ovo Women’s Tour took place yesterday and saw the streets of central London closed off for the spectacle.

In an exciting and fast race, the pro riders raced 14 laps of a 6.2km loop which began on Regent Street St James and took in famous landmarks that included Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus and The Strand.

One of the bikes that really stood out was ridden by Cylance Pro Cycling's Rossella Ratto. The Italian's interesting stem set up certainly turned heads with its approximately -40-degree angle — very unusual.

Despite a depleted team after a number of crashes and sickness in previous stages, Ratto's teammate Dani King finished ninth overall in the GC.
