The coming races will probably give a better idea what it's all about. It'll be also interesting to see how guys like Dumoulin or Kelderman will cope with the Cervelo bike in the time trials then.

That's a good test indeed, but it will be a comparison between the old Giant bike and the new improved Cervelo. Cervelo have this mantra about building bikes for all cyclists and not (only) for the WT top performers, but if they pay to sponsor Tom Dumoulin, wouldn't it make sense to do everything possible to make sure that he remains one of the worlds best in the ITT? 

I wouldn't just tell him "go see if you can find one that fits you, over in that shed there!"  :)

    I haven't found anything about a new Cervelo time trial bike, and I'd guess they wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to do a bit of promotion for that, now having Dumoulin in their ranks. But who knows... maybe that's still to come.

    Their previous bike supplier has a comepletely new set of top-of-the-line models for this year, so it does not necessarily carry over to whichever team is sponsored by that supplier now.
    That would be #sunweb who revealed all-new Cervélos at their Berlin launch. I was there. ;)

    (PS: can we change the thread title to include Dimension Data, at least in brackets behind the old title? I don't think they use Qhubeka in their name any more?) 
    Done.
