Having already seemed on the 2020 race motorcycles of EF, Ineos, Sunweb, Movistar, and Deceuninck-Quickstep, it’s now time to have a look at the ones belonging to Astana, Mitchelton-Scott, Jumbo-Visma, Israel Get started-Up Country, and Groupama-FDJ. And that is indubitably a choice of motorcycles to not omit given they respectively belong to Luis Leon Sanchez, Simon Yates, George Bennett, Andre Greipel… and Marc Sarreau.

If disc brakes are the commonest new pattern among the groups, then the extra broadly unfold acceptance of aerodynamic advantages is arguably the second one theme. Whilst many riders nonetheless elect for the lighter and extra well-rounded body alternatives, masses achieve this with deep wheels and aero handlebar setups. It’s nonetheless reasonably commonplace to search out spherical handlebars, common stems, and flappy cable, however such issues are indubitably much less distinguished than in years previous.

FSA is essentially the most dominant logo within the cockpits, and it truthfully felt like each and every 2nd motorbike has both an FSA or Imaginative and prescient (FSA’s aero department) handlebar/stem combo. And but, in spite of such dominance, there aren’t any FSA groupsets to be noticed.

Now, onto the following 5 motorcycles of the 2020 males’s WorldTour.

Astana

The partnership between Astana and Argon 18 handiest not too long ago ended, and Wilier Triestina was once fast to take over the reins. No longer not like Crew Ineos and its use of the F12 for all races, Astana will race all the season on Wilier’s new light-weight and aero 0 SLR.

Astana will use the Turbine for time trials, and so the workforce is one of the to have dedicated to disc brakes for the brand new season.

The 0 SLR is designed to be used with Wilier’s personal one-piece handlebar and stem, and that’s precisely what Astana are the usage of. The program hides the brake hoses and electrical wires whilst offering an impressively blank glance.

If it wasn’t for the original boxy seat clamp that sits within the nook between the seat tube and most sensible tube, then the 0 SLR’s silhouette can be a tricky one to pick out in opposition to different light-weight and aero race machines.

The 0 SLR body options the Mavic Velocity Unlock thru-axle device, which makes use of an open dropout on one aspect and a stepped-down segment at the thru-axle shaft in order that the wheel may also be got rid of with out utterly pulling out the axle as standard.

The workforce is lately using on complete Shimano Dura-Ace R91070 Di2 groupsets, together with the Dura-Ace powermeter. The rear derailleurs, changed with CeramicSpeed outsized pulley wheel programs, are set as much as direct-mount hangers.

Astana continues its long-standing courting with French wheel corporate Corima. From what I’ve noticed, the workforce is operating the 47mm-deep WS Black tubular wheels, which characteristic a singular lacing trend and an approximate 1,500g paired weight.

Jumbo-Visma

There’s now not a lot new at the celeste Bianchi motorcycles belonging to the Dutch outfit. And prefer final season, the vast majority of riders are sticking to the ancient Italian motorbike corporate’s aero style, the Oltre XR4.

The sort of motorbike selection even applies to the light-weight climbers of the workforce, similar to New Zealand rider George Bennett. Then again, Bennett does like to forgo the built-in and aero Imaginative and prescient cockpit in favour of a extra conventional two-piece bar and stem.

Jumbo-Visma is sticking to rim brakes, no less than for now. It’s slightly conceivable we’ll see this alteration for the classics, however it’s most probably the workforce will change again to its light-weight rim brakes right through its Grand Excursion interests.

The workforce is the usage of a complete Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 Di2 groupset, together with the matching powermeter and tubular wheels. And sure, the rear derailleur is fastened to a direct-mount hanger (seeing a pattern but?). In terms of Bennett’s motorbike, Di2 dash shifters are fitted underneath the tops of the handlebars, permitting simple moving whilst in a at ease hiking place.

Groupama-FDJ

It’s now 18 years and counting for FDJ on Lapierre motorcycles. The French outfit has began the season on freshly, and extra merely, painted Xelius SL (light-weight) and Aircode SL (aero) motorcycles.

The workforce is lately operating a mixture of rim and disc brakes, however the tide is popping. I used to be knowledgeable that the riders are lately given the selection, and roughly 20 of the workforce have elected for discs, whilst kind of 8 riders – usually GC contenders and climbers – are sticking with rim brakes, no less than for now.

FDJ has a long-standing courting with Shimano, and strangely greenbacks the standard pattern of direct-mount rear derailleur hangers. Shimano Dura-Ace groupsets, wheels, and powermeters are used throughout all workforce motorcycles, whilst PRO supplies the cockpit items. As noticed at the motorbike of French rider Marc Sarreau, the Professional Vibe Aero Superlight handlebar provides an aero flourish to the motorbike’s frontal profile.

One merchandise I haven’t noticed a lot of is the Shimano SM-AX720 thru-axle, a product that appears identical to a Dura-Ace fast liberate. Curiously, it felt just like the Lapierre motorcycles had a SpeedRelease-compatible open dropout on one aspect.

Mitchelton-Scott

Contemporary years have noticed Mitchelton-Scott transition from a one-day specialist outfit to at least one with respectable Grand Excursion wants. And whilst the likes of Ineos and Jumbo-Visma hold to their lighter rim brakes, the Australian workforce has moved solely to disc brakes.

Mitchelton-Scott has run a mixture of the light-weight Addict and aero Foil sooner than, however now the entire workforce is dedicated to the brand new aero and light-weight Addict RC. It’s a motorcycle that debuted in time for final 12 months’s Excursion de France, and the workforce motorcycles have slightly modified since then.

The workforce is the usage of the one-piece Syncros handlebar that was once made in particular for the Addict RC, and Syncros parts are discovered on the different contact issues, too.

The body, fork, and one-piece handlebar/stem are all given an outstanding glitter paint fade, one thing regularly known as “Unicorn blood”. It glimmers within the gentle, and those indoor footage merely don’t do it justice (even though the picture of the handlebar comes shut).

In comparison to this time final 12 months, the workforce has moved from Elite bidon cages to Tacx. Mitchelton-Scott is backed via Garmin, and so the Tacx connection comes via Garmin’s acquisition of the corporate.

Shimano continues to offer groupsets, wheels, and powermeters to the workforce, with the rear derailleur striking from a direct-mount hanger. Pirelli continues because the tyre sponsor.

Israel Get started-Up Country

As probably the most new faces to the WorldTour, the Issue motorcycles of Israel Get started-Up Country are extraordinarily recent. As coated in an interview with Issue’s proprietor, Rob Gitelis, the workforce will probably be using each the aerodynamic One and the light-weight 02 VAM, each with disc brakes handiest.

Pictured is Andre Greipel’s Issue One, an aero motorbike with an unmistakable break up down tube design. The One assists in keeping cabling tucked away, and it’s simple to look how given the externally strengthened fork design.

Issue’s sister part corporate, Black Inc, supplies the wheels and cockpits, with the previous wrapped in Maxxis rubber. That is Maxxis’ debut to the WorldTour, and given the team-issue “Yalla Academy” sizzling stamp, it’s protected to think that there are new race-day tyres within the works.

In our previous interview with Gitelis, it was once discussed that Issue is offering the Shimano moving and braking parts to the workforce. Then again, those are some distance from inventory groupsets, with CeramicSpeed OSPW derailleur cages, CeramicSpeed backside brackets, KMC X11-SL chains*, and SwissStop disc brakes rotors/pads. Energy information is from 4iiii, and the workforce has simply taken supply of Bryton head devices.

Selle Italia saddle is the one carryover part from Katusha-Alpecin, the workforce who Israel Get started-Up Country successfully took over.
