Steve Cummings' Tour de France Cervelo P5

British rider takes stage 14 for MTN-Qhubeka

MTN-Qhubeka's Steve Cummings won stage 14 of the Tour de France Saturday on Nelson Mandela International Day, a momentous occasion for the first African-based team in the world's biggest grand tour.

Qhubeka is a World Bicycle Relief program in South Africa, and the organization is using the Tour de France to raise awareness and funds to provide 5,000 students in South Africa with bicycles.

Cummings won his stage on a Cervelo S5, but we had the chance to shoot his P5 time trial bike before the Tour began.

There are a few notably pieces on his P5. Magura's hydraulic rim brakes allow for tight routing of the brake lines through the aero frame — often a severe limiter in brake performance on cabled bikes due to friction — without compromise in braking performance. Similarly, Shimano Di2 wires can be tucked into the tightest of bends without issue.

ENVE is the team's wheel sponsor, but the Utah company does not make a disc wheel. So what looks almost certainly to be a HED Stinger Disc is used here unmarked, save the logo on the skewer.

As with the rest of his team, Cummings' bikes all have the new MTN-Qhubeka paint job that celebrates that Qhubeka's #BicyclesChangesLives campaign.
