At the beginning of the year we grabbed the S-Works Tarmac of Javier Gomez while he was training on Fuerteventura, but just before the WTS event in Auckland he received a new S-Works Venge and piloted it aggressively during the bike segment of the race, before eventually finishing second behind Jonathan Brownlee.
Javier Gomez pushes up one of the climbs in Auckland in the lead break that was not caught, and the multiple World Champion worked very hard up front.
The new 54cm S-Works Venge out of the box and ready to be assembled.
The World Champion stripes are very understated here.
With all the parts set on the table, the final and careful assembly can commence.
Gomez rides 172.5mm S-Works road cranks with SRAM 53/39 rings, SRAM Red 22 front and rear derailleurs and typically on Look pedals.
The attention to detail on this build is apparent and helps the confidence f the pilot.
With final touches applied the bike is ready to be shipped to Javier Gomez.
Gomez has a fairly aggressive position on his bike and runs a 110mm S-Works SL stem, and 42cm SL shallow bend bars.
SRAM Red 22 mechanical brakes front and back.
The S-Works Power saddle is a fairly recent addition to his bike as far as we know.
That number of stars is tough to match, but Gomez is not done yet.
