Team Owner Mark Ernsting, Trek Service Technician Dan O’Connell and Team Director Maxime Martin show off the 2018 Frame.

The team will be riding on the Trek Emonda frame set this season. The Emonda represents the lightest and stiffest road bikes that Trek has ever made. Every detail of the bike from its integrated BB90 bottom bracket to OCLV500 carbon material is designed to work together. The frame provides all the ride characteristics that the riders are looking for; stiffness, lightness, responsiveness and a perfect geometric fit. Through our continued partnership with Shimano, the frames will be spec’d with top of the line Dura-Ace drivetrain, C40 & C60 wheelset’s, along with PRO stem, handle bar and saddle.

“We worked closely with Evan Moore, District Manager of Trek Bicycles to close this deal. We are also working very closely with the Trek Bicycle shop in Port Coquitlam and Service Technician, Dan O’Connell, who meticulously built all the bikes”, said Team Owner, Mark Ernsting. Each bike is custom built with each riders’ personal requests, and this year riders will have the option at each race to either use the new Shimano C40 or C60 race wheelsets.
