The R3 carbon road bike is consistently voted the best high-performing enthusiast road bike on the market.
From the flourishing Tour of Rwanda to the storied Kuipke track at the Six Day of Ghent, it was a winning weekend for Cervélo riders.
First, Team Dimension Data’s Mark Cavendish rode a Cervélo T4 to his first Six Days of Ghent title. After five days of thrilling back-and-forth racing, Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins went into the final Madison in third place. To win, the British duo had to gain a full lap on leaders Kenny De Ketele and Moreno De Pauw, as well as on second-placed Elia Viviani and Iljo Keisse.
Cav and Wiggo waited until the final moments to unleash their world-championship pedigree, and in the end gained the lap they needed to take the title in dramatic fashion. It was the first in history for a British team.
About 8,000 kms to the south, DiData’s African Continental squad wrapped up eight days of road racing on Cervélo R3s with an impressive GC victory at the Tour of Rwanda. The host country’s Valens Ndayisenga became the first double winner of the eight-year-old UCI Africa Tour event when he delivered a solid third-place ride to maintain his lead over fellow DDD rider Eyob Metkel on the final stage. The South Africa-based team dominated the Tour, winning the team title, taking three stages, and placing three riders in the top five overall.
