Primoz Roglic (Team LottoNL-Jumbo) rode Aquila CV to third position in Tour de Romandie's prologue, a 4-km ITT with start and finish in Fribourg (Switzerland) on Tuesday, April 24th. The Slovenian finished the race in 5:34, with a one-second gap from winner Michael Matthews and with the same time of Tom Bohli and Rohan Dennis, second and fourth placed respectively.
2017 TT Worlds' silver medallist, recent winner of the Itzulia Basque Country, Roglic competed on a special version of Bianchi’s TT model Aquila CV, in the exclusive CK16 coloration and hand-painted in Italy by Bianchi's expert craftsmen.
Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with the Bianchi CV system:
  • Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control
  • Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
  • Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke
  • Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, providing remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reducing muscular fatigue
