A CLOSER LOOK AT CORNE VAN KESSEL’S TREK BOONE

For the full Worlds galleries, be sure to head over to Day 1 and Day 2. From it’s sculpted carbon nose, to IsoSpeed coupled tail the Corne Van Kessel’s Trek Boone is a fancy piece of kit.

This is Corne van Kessel’s bike for the World Championships in Bieles.

RACE SHOP LIMITED means this is one of the limited edition fully race specific bikes designed for pros.

Trek are hosting a round of next year’s World Cup at their US base.

Spot the cable Part One.

Spot the cable Part Two.
Corne’s bike was fitted with Dugast Typhoons in the morning of the Worlds, but it’s likely he’ll switch to Rhinos by the afternoon due to the changing conditions.
The Iso Speed Coupler is effectively a hinge and a rubber bushing which provides some dampening over rough terrain. It’s probably something some riders will love and others will laugh at.

Most riders on the Shimano groupset now have a set of these ‘Prototype’ SPDs.

Full Di2 Dura Ace for the Telenet Fidea riders.

Corne brought this Boone home in 5th. Finishing like so many others, on a flat rear tyre.
