Alongside the banks of the Schelde river in Antwerp, buses, team cars, fans and riders of the 25 teams lined up for the 101st edition of De Ronde. Amongst the organised chaos of the second Monument of the year, Cyclingnews took a closer look at Norwegian National Champion Edvald Boasson Hagen's Dimension Data team issue Cervelo R5 used in the cobbled Classic.

Usually riding an aero Cervelo S5, Boasson Hagen had a similar setup to his more familiar race bike. The gearing consists of a ROTOR components 54 tooth outer chainring, combined with 175mm cranks and an 11-28 Shimano Ultegra cassette for the Norwegian sprinter. Shifting is provided by a Shimano Dura-Ace 9070 groupset, and while Boasson-Hagen's teammates are usually known for utilising CeramicSpeed jockey wheels, Boasson-Hagen opts for a standard Shimano Dura-Ace rear derailleur.

Team Dimension Data's bikes are paired with a combination of ENVE wheels and finishing kit, Fizik saddles, CeramicSpeed headset and bottom bracket and LizardSkins handlebar tape.
