As Peter Sagan (Cannondale) racked up four wins in seven stages at the 2013 USA Pro Challenge, cycling fans got to see plenty of his road bike. So, instead, here’s a look at the Slovakian speedster’s time trial machine, the Cannondale Slice RS.
Integration abounds on Sagan’s Slice, which has hidden brakes (Cannondale Naero-Tec mini-V calipers) and a fork that wraps around the front of the head tube to connect with the integrated stem.
Best known for his sprinting, Sagan certainly has the ability to do well in time trials as well, at least over shorter courses. At the 2012 Tour of Switzerland he bested the likes of Fabian Cancellara for the win in a 7.3km TT. In Colorado, however, Sagan treated stage 5’s uphill time trial as a rest day of sorts, finishing in 59th place.
