Niki Terpstra will be riding a Wilier Cento10PRO with a gorgeous custom painted fork as he defends his Tour of Flanders title on Sunday April the 7th. The Direct Energie racer’s machine is pretty much standard, save for the Cento10PRO #CobblesCrusher edition carbon fork.
While ‘cobble crusher’ makes it sound as if the Italian brand might have added trick suspension to its aero bike especially for the 2019 editions of the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix, the reality is somewhat different — the fork simply has an intricate paint job depicting the cobbles the Dutch rider will be tackling this Spring.
Wilier tell us that Terpstra is more than happy using a stock fork and frame as he’s ridden long cobble recon rides over the winter and ‘feels perfect’ on the Cento10PRO.
Terpstra’s bike is the Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 rim-brake equipped version of the Cento10PRO, with FFWD F4R wheels rolling on 28mm Hutchinson Racing Lab 11Storm tyres. The saddle’s a Prologo Dimension153 and the finishing kit is from FSA and bespoke to Terpstra.
