Matteo Trentin won stage 17 of the 2019 Tour de France riding this special edition version of the all-new Scott Addict RC.
With a very handsome blue finish, the bike has been painted to commemorate the Italian’s win at the European Championships in Glasgow last year. The rest of the Mitchelton-Scott squad are riding bikes finished in the team’s classic black and yellow colour scheme.
Temperatures soared to above 40 degrees Celsius on stage 17 Zac Williams/SWPix.com
Soloing to victory with 14km remaining on the road into Gap, in temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius, the Mitchelton-Scott rider finished 37 seconds ahead of the break aboard the Addict RC, now only available with disc brakes and featuring a revised cockpit that keeps the front-end very clean indeed.
We expect the team to stick with Scott’s updated race platform as the Tour hits the Alps today.

The cockpit allows Scott to route all cables internally Kristof Ramon
The Creston iC SL cockpit comes from Syncros, Scott’s in-house components and accessories brand, and has been painted to match the rest of Trentin’s bike. This one-piece integrated handlebar and stem is a key part of the Addict, allowing Scott to hide absolutely all cables internally.
The saddle and seatpost also come courtesy of Syncros, with Trentin’s preferred perch being a Syncros Torfino.
As a key sponsor of the team, it should come as no surprise that Trentin’s bike is dripping with all manner of Shimano finery, including its Dura-Ace R9160 Di2 groupset and C60 wheels.
This guy doesn’t care that the new Addict is disc-only Kristof Ramon
One thing you won’t see on the Trentin’s bike is rim brakes because the new Addict is disc-only.
While we expect to see the team aboard the new bike, particularly as the race hits the Alps, Mitchelton-Scott riders also have the Foil aero bike to choose from for flatter stages.
