That finish was close enough where the Aeroad’s CdA advantage over the rim-brake Oltre XR4 was the difference.

Disc brakes are basically never faster. Nothing has bested a 2016 trek madone in the wind tunnel.

The 2021 Aeroad is the fastest disc bike using the same Tour Mag protocols that rank the old Madone so highly. It matches the SL7 on the hilly course and beats it on the flatter course by 48 seconds. It matches the 2016 Madone on the flat course as well...and we’re talking about the Oltre XR4, not the old Madone.



So yeah, this went about as expected with your “well acckkshumally.”

the government of Canada invented aerodynamics as part of a conspiracy with Cervelo to sell bikes to chiropractors and small business owners- what matters is, as shown in the TDF, having a Campagnolo groupset

That's with stock wheels mind, the Aeroad has a 62mm DT Swiss as opposed to the 50mm Rapide.

Using the difference between the Swiss Side 50mm and 62mm as an example, going to 62mm would be about -2.5W and +100g difference which is about 7s better on the hilly course and twice that on the flatter.
