It appears a small contingent of riders within the Jumbo-Visma team have been racing a new bike in recent weeks. More specifically, it appears that Cervélo has a new S5 aero bike up its sleeve, and Wout Van Aert piloted it to victory at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday. However, due to the subtleties of its changes, it had managed to fly under the radar despite being on show for all to see, until now. 

We got up close with the new bike ahead of Sunday's Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, which was piloted by Tiesj Benoot during both of the Opening Weekend's race days.
