Damien Howson was a workhorse who became a winner this week, as he took victory in the Falls Creek stage at the Herald Sun Tour to set up overall victory. His first win since the under-23 individual time trial World Championships in 2013.
Howson has built a reputation as a selfless domestique for his teammate Esteban Chaves, supporting the Colombian to podium positions in both the Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España in 2016.
The Orica-Scott rider was on the Foil RC in this year's Tour Down Under. The frame was designed with aerodynamic advantages in mind, and used in the high mountains of all three Grand Tours. It famously took Mat Hayman to Paris-Roubaix victory last year, the first rider to win the cobbled Classic on an aero frame.
Howson rides an XL frame that has a massive 295mm of carbon seat post with a Syncros saddle on top. The Foil's aero stem is also on the long side, with the stem measuring 145mm - although the longest stem is usually 140mm.
The Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset is paired with an SRM power meter. Howson opts for 175mm cranks and pedals that have seen better days. Orica-Scott's mechanics are waiting for the latest Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 groupset and wheels, but are confident they will have them in time for the spring Classics.
The Syncros RR1.5 handlebars measured just 390mm on the tops (centre to centre) and feature sprint shifters on the drops.
