Dan McLay’s four top 10 results at his debut Tour de France last year turned a few heads, and the 25-year-old Briton continued the form with a further four top 10s at the Tour of Britain. The Fortuneo-Vital Concept rider was subsequently selected for the British squad at the UCI Road World Championships in Doha.
McLay rides a Look 795 aero frame with a combination of SRAM Red eTap components and Corima wheels. Cyclingnews photographed the sprinter's bike ahead of the 2017 Scheldeprijs.
The integrated stem on the aero frame measured a lengthy 170mm and is combined with 400mm Look ADH aero hanflebar. The also-integrated seat mast is paired with a carbon Look E-Post, which slots into the mast and is topped with a Specialized Power Pro saddle.
McLay opted for a large 55T outer chainring for the flat Scheldeprijs race, while the inner 39T chainring and 11-28 cassette were more standard fare.
The 47mm carbon Corima wheels were wrapped with unmarked gumwall tubulars, although the team is usually equipped with Challenge tubular tyres. Both of the components were visibly worn, as is generally the case with Pro Continental and Continental teams whom have far smaller budgets than the WorldTour teams.
