Jodie Swallow recently got on board with Scott Sports and while we were at the 2014 Datev Challenge Roth we took a closer look at her Scott Plasma 5 race bike. Swallow however was not racing in Roth, she supported boyfriend James Cunnama and used that awesome region of Germany for training sessions.
Swallow was ready to go out on a 7:30am ride when we stopped by to get a closer look.
We suspect that we may see some neon graphics on those wheels before too long.
Swallow had a spare tube kit in that top tube storage unit.
The Profile Design cockpit is new and Swallow has hers still bare. Shifting and braking is done via Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 controls.
We asked Jodie about the grips and she told us that Simon Smart helped her with those.
The front end of the Scott Plasma 5 looks a bit like an elaborate puzzle. But the Profile Design bottle snaps in and is removed easily and so do the rubberized cover pieces.
New pads from Profile Design and a narrow extension position.

An ISM Prologue helps with the long days in the saddle.
A clever and clean position for the Shimano Junction A box.
Swallow rides on 165mm Rotor Power cranks.
When we saw the bike there was only one XLab sidekick cage on the bike.
Although on a training session, Swallow rode her Enve Smart SES race wheels with Continental GrandPrix TT tires.
The Scott triathlon shoes match the new graphics package nicely.
