Kristoff Discovers the Stages Dash
This year’s campaign also provided the UAE Emirates team leader with plenty of time to test the new Stages Dash computer. And while most top riders are nervous before the mythic Ronde van Vlaanderen, Kristoff was particularly relaxed. Winning the prestigious Ghent–Wevelgem the previous weekend perhaps gave him some pre-race confidence. And after riding the Flanders recon the day before, Kristoff was only too happy to meet up with Peloton and prepare his new computer.
Veteran Italian mechanic Giuseppe Archetti easily set up Kristoff’s new Dash on his aero Colnago before the rider came down for his Saturday morning training ride. “Looks pretty easy to work,” he said as he turned it on and ran through a variety of the controls. “Pretty intuitive.”
