Jesus Herrada lined up at the Tour Down Under on the familiar Canyon Ultimate used by the Movistar Team during last year's season. Unlike the WorldTour peers of Team Sky and AG2R La Mondiale, who have entered the season on new bikes, and Team Katusha who ride on the updated Canyon Ultimate CF SLX 9.0, Movistar have opted to stick with their tried, tested and Vuelta a Espana winning Canyon Ultimate 8.0/Campagnolo combination.
Herrada just missed out in a top ten finish in Adelaide, but following Gorka Izaguirre's stage three crash, was Movistar's best placed rider. In his seventh season with the Spanish outfit, the former Spanish national champion will look to build on his biggest career victory, a stage at the Criterium du Dauphine last year, over the course of the season.
The six-foot Spaniard rides a medium frame, 172.5mm cranks, and a 120mm stem. Standard width, 420mm Canyon handlebars are paired with LizardSkins handlebar tape in Movistar colours. Despite being a mid-range size and having various alloy finishing components, the bike weighed in only 140g above the UCI weight limit.
A full Campagnolo Super-Record EPS groupset adorns the German designed frame, which is becoming a rare sight in the WorldTour peloton. Just the Movistar and UAE Abu Dhabi teams are equipped with Campagnolo groupsets and both pair the groupsets with Campagnolo Bora wheelsets.
Herrada has a gear combination of 53-39 chainrings and an 11-29 cassette. The Italian trend continues with a Fizik Aliante VSX saddle in team colours, whilst the French manufacturer Look supplies the pedals.
