Richie Porte's Trek Emonda – Gallery

Richie Porte has ridden his way onto the podium at every Tour Down Under since 2014, but he has only managed to clinch the overall classification once in that time. For the 2020 edition, with newly crowned Mads Pedersen riding in support, the Tasmanian will surely be one to watch.

Now in his second season with Trek-Segafredo, Porte is riding a size 50cm Trek Emonda in Adelaide. Complete with a full SRAM Red eTap AXS drivetrain, the Aussie is pushing 54/41t chainrings at the front and a 10-28t 12-Speed cassette at the rear — though this will likely change on race day.

Trek's ruby red Emonda climbing race bikes have been disc only for a few years now, and Porte's stoppers are hydraulic with a 160mm rotor at the front and a smaller, lighter 140mm disc on the rear. 

Porte's cockpit consists of the single-piece Bontrager XXX bar and stem combo usually found on the Madone, and sees sprint shifters on the drops. 

In its current configuration, the Australian's bike is rolling on the mid-depth Aeolus 4 XXX wheels finished in 25c Pirelli P-Zero tubular, though we expect to see Porte rolling on the lower profile, Aeolus XXX 2 lightweight wheels for Willunga Hill on Stage 6. Although Bontrager Aeolus wheels are available in a TLR guise, there's no hint that Porte will be using tubeless tyres at this year's Tour Down Under. Tipping our scales at 7.04kg, there is a bit of wiggle room to lighten up the Trek-Segafredo team leader's bike for the climbing stages.
