Rafa Valls arrived in Australia as Lotto-Soudal's team leader, achieving a top ten placing at the 2017 Tour Down Under last month. Riding on Ridley's latest aero offering, the Noah SL, Valls' bike was equipped with Campagnolo Super Record EPS and Bora Ultra wheels.
The electronic groupset consists of Campagnolo Super Record brakes and shifters, 53-39T chainrings, an 11-27T cassette and a SRM powermeter paired with a SRM PC-8 headunit.
Dedacciai provide the alloy stem and handlebar combination and the Italian trend continues with Elite bottle cages, a Selle Italia SLR Team Issue saddle and Vittoria Corsa tubular tyres.
