American Andrew Talansky finished a very respectable 10th in his first Tour de France. His bike? the Cervelo R5, the same bike you can test ride at Ben's Cycles. It's fast, stiff, and capable of getting you to the top of Alpe d' Huez or your local hill climb faster than your friends.

Pro bike: Andrew Talansky's Cervelo R5

Andrew Talansky (Garmin-Sharp) entered his first Tour de France with high hopes. He isn't on Cervelo's new RCA model, instead sticking with the R5 VWD he rode last year. The whole team made the move to Shimano's new 11-speed Dura-Ace 9070 Di2 electronic group before the Tour, and he's on the team-issue 3T cockpit and seatpost. He has moved to a Fizik Aliante saddle from the Arione we spotted him on last year.
