Video: Giant at the Spring Classics
13 april 2012
Rabobank’s classics riders had a new weapon this year for the cobblestone roads of the northern classics in Belgium and France. Matti Breschel and Lars Boom each rode the new Defy Advanced SL for certain races, helping them score several top-10 finishes. With its superlight composite frame and endurance-oriented ride quality, the new bike offered another option to the TCR Advanced SL and the TCX Advanced SL cyclocross bike, which Boom used to score a career-best sixth at Paris-Roubaix. This video goes behind the scenes with Breschel, Boom and the rest of the team at the races they love most.
