Dirk Bockel Speed Concept

Dirk Bockel has finished 3rd and 2nd in Abu Dhabi and maybe the 3rd time will be the charm. Today we take a look at his 2012 Team Leopard Trek Speed Concept.

A very familiar team scheme in an unfamiliar venue.

Dirk Bockel relies on the SRM power meter to keep his pace in check.

Yup, those Speedplay pedals do match the paint job nicely.

Bockel does not need UCI legal base bars and his are deep and narrow.

Look here what is hidden inside the stem. Can you say Junction A?
