Gallery: Mark Renshaw's Cervélo S5

Check out the Aussie's TDU race bike

Hailing from Bathurst in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales, Mark Renshaw has just completed his 15th Tour Down Under.

This year in Adelaide he and the rest of the Team Dimension Data riders rode Cervélo S5s, with Renshaw riding a size 54 frame.

With the team running Rotor’s In2Power power meters this year, Renshaw opted for the brand’s NoQ Aero round chainrings in a 54/39T combo and 172.5mm cranks. At the back Renshaw was running an 11-28T Ultegra cassette, as well as a gold KMC chain for a bit of added bling.

While none of the World Tour teams received a full 9170 Di2 groupset and given Dimension Data's relationship with Rotor, the brand's Uno hydraulic groupset is a notable omission. None the less, Renshaw was running Shimano Dura-Ace 9070 Di2 shifters and derailers as well as Dura-Ace 9000 caliper brakes.

With a full ENVE finishing kit, Renshaw was the only Dimension Data rider we saw rolling on the brand's SES 7.8, with most opting for the shallower SES 4.5. Rolling around Enve’s new carbon road hub, the rims were wrapped in 25mm Conti Competition tubulars and the wheels secured with DT swiss skewers from last year.

Renshaw’s touch points were made up of a Fizik Aliante R1 Large and 400mm ENVE bars wrapped in black camo Lizard Skins DPS bar tape, attached to a 130mm stem.  

Dimension Data is also the only men’s World Tour Team sponsored by Speedplay for 2017 and it's got the Zero pedals in the team’s lime green colour scheme — Renshaw was running 53mm stainless steel axles.
