Gallery: Primož Roglič’s golden Cervélo with molded-in shifters

A custom aerobar, an Olympic theme, and a 56t big ring for the defending Vuelta champ.

When the 2021 Vuelta a España starts Saturday, the first man shall be last, as defending champion Primož Roglič will take the final start as rider 184 for the 7.1km opening prologue.

Roglič is riding a freshly painted Cervélo P5, with gold paint and subtle rings celebrating his victory in the Olympic time trial last month.

As the painters worked their magic, so too did the team’s mechanics and Vision’s custom-molding staff. Check out James Startt’s excellent photos below for a closer look.
