World champion Michal Kwiatkowski will make his 2015 racing debut on a special Specialized S-Works Tarmac at the Tour de San Luis later this month but Cyclingnews got an exclusive chance to see the Polish rider’s bike was  at the Etixx-QuickStep training camp in Spain.

Kwiatkowski's special world champion colours were unveiled at Il Lombardia last October However, while the frameset has remained similar, there have been a few alterations in components and wheelset for 2015.

Kwiatkowski has used Specialized Roval CLX40 Clincher wheels in training [as pictured], but he will race on the tubular CLX 40s and run Specialized newest generation of S-Works Turbo Tubular tires in the coming weeks. The shift in wheels sees the Belgian squad replace Zipp has the manufacturer of choice.

Elsewhere FSA has come in in as the component and drive chain sponsor, with Shimano providing the shifters and derailleurs.
