10 shift buttons on Degenkolb's Tour de France Trek Madone
In the sprints of this year’s Tour de France, Trek-Segafredo’s John Degenkolb has his head down and his hands in the drops, shifting with sprint shifters on the hooks of his bars. But at other times in the race, he can shift with sprint shifters glued to the underside of his Madone bar/stem, with the programmed buttons on the tops of his hoods, or even the old-fashioned way, at the shift levers.
All told, Degenkolb has 10 buttons on his cockpit that he can press.
John Degenkolb’s Tour de France Trek Madone
Degenkolb hasn’t yet found success at this year’s Tour. He’s been close enough to the front to get taken out by that Peter Sagan / Mark Cavendish collision, but a second place on stage 10 has been his best result thus far.
