A month ago we had a brief look at the new Stevens Super Prestige Disc cyclocross bikes of the BKCP Powerplus cyclocross team that the team switched to in 2015 from Colnago.
Mathieu van der Poel’s camouflage and Dutch national colors-painted model certainly caught the most eyeballs. Since that debut, Mathie van der Poel has made a habit of winning top-level races, and we’ve now had three different looks at his winning-ride from the 2015 Cyclocross World Championships, brought to you in our slideshow of his Leuven, Hoogerheide and Worlds-winning bike. Betting on the second-generation cyclocrosser seems to be a smart bet, as he’s won a rainbow jersey in three of his four attempts.
Although van der Poel’s camo Sniper-themed bike features a slew of sponsor Shimano and PRO components, it strays a bit from conventional wisdom in that many top cyclocrossers opt for alloy cockpit components, van der Poel pretty much opts for carbon wherever possible. He doesn’t, however, always pick the latest generation of components. See the full profile below, and don’t miss our growing list of winning bike profiles here.
