The bike will be used for this season’s Classics campaign and along with a subtle grey base colour, contrasting gold decals throughout the frameset celebrate the Belgian’s gold medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
Along with the eye-catching gold decals on the frameset, Fizik provides Van Avermaet with a custom finished Antares saddle, which has gold panels either side of the black central channel.

BMC Racing pairs its bikes with full Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 groupsets, including R9100 series wheels and Shimano’s Dura-Ace R9100-P crank based power meter.
Van Avermaet missed out on a hat trick of Omloop titles over the weekend aboard the new BMC, but will be aiming to go one better than last year at this weekend’s Strade Bianche in Italy and finish on the top step in Siena.
