Daryl Impey won last year’s edition of the Tour Down Under riding for Mitchelton-Scott. The current South African national champion continues his tenure with the Australian-registered squad for 2019 and has just taken the win in stage four of this year’s edition of the race on this Scott Foil RC.

Impey is a strong all round rider and is expected to spend time on both Scott’s Foil aero bike and Addict race bike this season. 

Impey’s pictured Foil RC is set up with a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 Di2 groupset. The bike is built around direct-mount rim brakes, with the rear brake tucked beneath the chainstay in a bid to improve the aero qualities of the bike

Shimano also supplies wheels to the team, with Impey rolling on Dura-Ace R9100 C40 wheels for stage four. Syncros — Scott’s in-house components brand — supplies finishing kit, including its RR1.0 SL one-piece cockpit.
