Lead out and Classics specialist Mitch Docker is donning the pink-and-lime-green of EF Education First-Drapac presented by Cannondale at the Tour Down Under. And, with that, his brand-new Cannondale Supersix Evo HiMod race bike.
Riding a size 54 frame, Docker’s fit isn’t all that radical like some pro riders. He does have a moderately long 120mm FSA OS-99 stem, but that’s hardly out of the ordinary, and with 390mm bars and a 755 saddle height.
FSA has expanded its sponsorship with the team from last year as they swapped from Mavic to FSA’s in-house wheel-brand Vision for 2018 with Docker riding the Meriton 55SL Tubulars. We can’t help but wonder if we will see the team testing the new FSA K-Force WE drivetrain later in the season.

The American team has also swapped out Fizik saddles and bar tape for Prologo for 2018 and Docker is riding the NagoEvo C3 Nack.
Spinning the gears is a Cannondale Hollowgram SiSL2 crankset complete with an SRM power meter and finished with FSA 54/39T chainrings.
Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale has also ditched the CeramicSpeed oversized jockey wheels and UFO chains for 2018, instead opting for the standard Shimano Dura-Ace versions.
Ahead of the Tour Down Under, Docker was also sporting a fresh new haircut, which we’d call the speed mullet, topped off by a moustache even Ron Burgundy would be jealous of.
