Brian Lopes wins the UCI Worldcup opening. Aboard Syntace.
With a wide format Syntace cockpit, consisting of Megaforce2 and 740mm wide Vector Carbon 31.8, all time bike legend Brian Lopes dominates the first UCI Worldcup cross-country eliminator round in Houffalize, Belgium, and with clear sovereignty wins all of his runs from the first qualifying round to the final round of the best four riders.
In his first race, legend Lopes uses the full advantages of the extrawide cockpit and outclasses his competitors especially in the technical sections of the course.
Well, admitted, his legs must have somehow also contributed to the success…
