The Spring Classic: Aeroad CF SLX
From the cobbles of Flanders to the climbs of the Ardennes, the 2015 Spring Classics have come to a close with one bike in the pro peloton proving to have the edge on all the rest: the Aeroad CF SLX.
Four out of cycling’s five Monuments are already behind us this year. These are the oldest and toughest races on the cycling calendar. To win just one is to write one’s name in the history books. To do that you need a machine made to make history. With 1st at the Tour of Flandersand now 1st at Liège-Bastogne-Liège alongside other memorable wins at Ghent-Wevelgem,Scheldeprijs and Flèche-Wallonne, no other bike in the peloton can claim to have had the same levels of success in the 2015 classics as the Aeroad CF SLX.
Liège-Bastogne-Liège. “La Doyenne”. The world’s oldest race and one of the five Monuments of the season. That’s where Alejandro Valverde brought an unbelievable Spring campaign to a close by sprinting to the win on the rain-soaked streets on the outskirts of Liège. With 2nd place at Amstel Gold and victory at Flèche-Wallonne before taking the big one at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Valverde and the Aeroad CF SLX were the dominant pairing throughout the Ardennes Classics.
Flash back to the beginning of April and the scene was a different one. Flanders, not the Ardennes. Cobbled bergs instead of forested climbs. With it talks of Alexander Kristoff’s domination, breaking away to take victory at another Monument, the Tour of Flanders. An outstanding performance on a bike that has what it takes to tame the cobbles: once again, the Aeroad CF SLX.
Made for the Monuments. Made for Champions. Made for Racing.
