Rohan Dennis has gone from strength to strength in 2015 with BMC with a stage win and overall victory at the Tour Down Under quickly followed by a successful attempt at the UCI World Hour record. The 25-year-old's successes continued with stage 1 time trial victory at the Tour de France to claim the first yellow jersey of the race. BMC's team time time trial win eight days later was further cherry on the cake.
On the eve of the USA Pro Challenge, Dennis was unsure how he would react to the altitude of Colorado but quickly found out he would thrive. Dennis animated stage 1, finished second on stage's 2 and 3, soloed to stage 4 victory and moved into the overall lead. The Australian then confirmed his status as the rider to beat in the 2.HC race with a dominating time trial victory in Breckenridge, on a a 56/44 crankset, while wearing the race leader's yellow jersey to all but ensure overall victory on Sunday in Denver.
While many of the teams at the US Pro Challenge had single time trial bikes for their riders with road bikes for back up on the follow cars, BMC of course had A and B bikes for all its rides. Dennis' A and B bikes were identical save the wheels; his spare had sponsor-correct Shimano C50 front and Shimano PRO disc while his race bike had unbranded wheels. The front wheel looks to be a HED GT3 and the rear a Lightweight disc.
