Team Sunweb and former time trial world champion Tom Dumoulin lined up at Tirreno-Adriatico's opening stage last week aboard the newly released Cervélo P5 Disc time trial bike.

Team Sunweb signed a contract with the Canadian brand in the off-season to replace Giant, who have moved to CCC Team.

The new time trial frameset follows recent aero-specific trends in being disc-brake-only, alongside a number of improved aerodynamics and stiffness claims, and the German-registered squad managed a third-place finish on the new bike at the Tirreno-Adriatico team time trial in Lido di Camaiore.

When sponsored by Giant, Team Sunweb paired their Giant Trinity time trial bikes with wheels from Shimano's sister brand, Pro. However, Pro's time trial wheels are not currently available as a disc-brake specification and the team appeared to be using an unbranded rear wheel with a Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 Disc, 60mm front wheel. Cyclingnews has contacted Shimano for comment.

The bike features a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 groupset, including a power-meter-equipped Shimano Dura-Ace R9100-P crankset.
