With this year’s Tour Down Under route favouring the climbers, reigning champ Daryl Impey has a tough week ahead if he hopes to make it a hat-trick in Adelaide

With the average gradient of the course increasing, it’s no surprise to see the South African reach for Scott’s climbing bike, the Addict RC. Launched back in July, the frame is only available in discs now, and tipped our scales a 7.15kg.

Mitchelton-Scott has been running Shimano drivetrains for some time, and the team bikes are shod with the full Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 groupset, including the integrated power meter. Ahead of the race, Impey is pushing 54/42t chainrings at the front, and an 11-30T cassette out the back — though we expect these ratios will change on race day.

The rolling stock is again provided by Shimano and Impey was running the C40 carbon wheels finished in 25c Pirelli P-Zero Velo tubular tyres. Breaking the ‘rules’, the labels on the tyres don’t line up with the vales, but with tubulars, there isn’t a whole lot you can do to fix it.

Impey’s Syncros Creston iC SL bar is painted to match his bike in the pearlescent purple and has a nifty removable cover to hide the pinch bolts and headset adjustment. Out in front, the South African is using a Garmin Edge 830 cycling computer.
