World Championships bikes: Barnes sisters to ride Canyon Aeroad

On Saturday, sisters Hannah and Alice Barnes will join forces in Team GB's bid to propel Lizzie Deignan to a second rainbow jersey at the UCI Road World Championships elite women's road race in Yorkshire. Despite rumours of a new Canyon Aeroad on its way, they will both do so aboard their tried-and-tested Canyon-SRAM team-issue Canyon Aeroad Disc race bikes. Given both ride for the same team, their bikes are almost identical when it comes to components, but the paint theme makes for a striking difference.

As the current British national road race champion, Alice's bike has been given the full custom treatment, with the predominantly white frame featuring splashes of red and blue to complete the Union Jack theme. Older sister Hannah, the former national champion who finished seventh in this year's race, will ride aboard a bike complete in Canyon-SRAM team colours.

The sisters will both be running a tubeless set up on their Zipp 303 wheelsets, testing prototype tyres from Schwalbe. Groupset supplier SRAM has marked the occasion with a rainbow-effect chain and cassette making up part the 12-speed Red eTap AXS Disc Groupset.
