Andrew Talansky won the Criterium du Dauphine in 2014. For this year’s edition, the American arrived as leader of the Cannondale-Drapac squad. Talansky sat in tenth place until the last day of the race but finished outside the top twenty following a difficult final stage.

Talansky rode the race aboard a Cannondale SuperSix Evo Hi-Mod at the race and equipped the chassis with a Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 series electronic groupset.

The crankset was a combination of Cannondale’s SiSL2 cranks, FSA 53/39t chainrings and a SRM power meter. Talansky paired the crankset with a Shimano Dura-Ace chain and 11-28T cassette.

A Fizik Antares saddle sits atop a FSA K-Force carbon seatpost and the same Fizik and FSA combination makes up the cockpit.

Dura-Ace 9070 levers are paired with an alloy FSA Energy compact handlebar and an OS-99 stem, with Fizik providing the handlebar tape.

Team sponsor Mavic supplies both the Mavic Cosmic Ultimate wheels and tubular tyres.

A Barfly out-front Garmin mount, Tacx Deva bottle cages and K3 number plate mount complete the bike.
