Rohan Dennis’ BMC Timemachine01 - Gallery

A detailed look at the Tirreno-Adriatico ITT stage-winning bike

This article was originally published on

Rohan Dennis surged to victory on the final day of Tirreno-Adriatico, not only securing his place on the podium, but also leapfrogging Thibaut Pinot into second place. The Australian national time trial champion came in three seconds ahead of Jos Van Emden and was BMC’s second stage victory following the opening stage’s team time trial of the race.

The new BMC Timemachine01 is equipped with full Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 gearing, integrated brakes and the same PRO Textreme carbon wheels that failed and cost Team Sky any chance of GC success in the opening stage of the race.

Dennis opted to run Shimano Dura-Ace 56-44T chainrings, a Shimano Dura-Ace 11-25T cassette and 175mm crankarms connected to the SRM powermeter.

The integrated ‘Flat-Cockpit’ from BMC is paired with 3T extensions, a small amount of bar tape and a few square centimetres of grip tape on the lower part of the handlebars.
