A new team for Ryder Hesjedal in 2016 means a new bike with the former Giro d’Italia winner moving from Cannondale-Garmin to Trek-Segafredo.

The Canadian is of course no stranger to Trek bikes, having raced them during his mountain biking days as a young professional. For this season he is on a 58cm Trek Madone 9 Series, in the team’s Viper Red colours.

Hesjedal will make his debut on the bike at the Tour Down Under later this month but spent part of December riding with his new teammates at their winter training camp in Spain. There are a few special features and modifications for Hesjedal’s road bike.

For starters, Trek has made some custom inserts for his Madone handlebar in order to fill the bend between the handlebar and shift lever. He also has the flat transition between the tops and the hoods.

Hesjedal is also the only Trek-Segafredo team member riding on a -17 Madone KVF Bar, with 40 width for aerodynamics and -17 to get the drop that he prefers.

Trek have told Cyclingnews that the overall weight of Hesjedal’s bike comes in at 7.4 Kilos with the Aeolus 5.0, and 7.3 with Aeolus 3.0.

Hesjedal will likely to ride the Madone on the flat stages of races but according to Trek, he prefers and his Emonda on the climbing stages where he feels that the weight is important.
