The 2017 Vuelta Ciclista a Andalucia is in the books and the Cannondale-Drapac squad raced this early season stage race on the SuperSix EVO disc. Racing was fast and furious from the first gun through final stage, with Simon Clarke taking second on stage 5 and Rigoberto Urán in the top 10 on GC. #greenargyle
The 63rd Vuelta a Andalucia, or Ruta del Sol, will be the first race of the season in which the team uses disc brake bikes.
"We are looking forward to use this... year’s Vuelta a Andalucia as our debut race. We are keen to enjoy its advantages and together with Cannondale, we will use the riders’ feedback for upcoming disc brake race events," says DS Andreas Klier.
