Santiago Ascenço's 4000 LTD

We ran into Santiago Ascenço at the 2575 Championships at the Cub Med Sandpiper Bay in Florida where he finished second behind veteran Oscar Galindez and we managed to grab the Kestrel 4000 LTD of this Brazilian Pro to snap a few images.

For this sprint race with only a 20k bike segment Ascenço kept it simple.

The bike is indeed a Kestrel 4000 LTD.

Ascenço has XLab components all over his bike.

3T bars and an Xlab Torpedo cage.

One button Shimano Di2 shifters on the aero extensions.

Shimano Dura-Ace cranks with an SRM powermeter and Speedplay pedals.
