Dylan Groenewegen's winning streak doesn't break off. Team LottoNL-Jumbo's sprinter rode Oltre XR4 to win in Tour of Slovenia's stage 2, 152,7 km from Maribor to Rogaska Slatina (Slovenia) on Thursday, June 14th. The 24-year-old rider from Amsterdam preceded Italian Matteo Pelucchi and Australian Caleb Ewan in the mass sprint which completed an easy stage taylored for the fast wheels.
In 2018 Groenewegen has clinched nine wins so far with Bianchi Oltre XR4, the high-performance aero road racing machine enhanced with the revolutionary Bianchi CV system, that allows rider to hold the most aerodynamic position at higher speeds and for longer, in order to maximize the aerodynamic advantage. Last May the Dutchman had topped three stages in Tour of Norway in Horten, Sarpsborg and Brummundal, whilst in the early season he celebrated at Dubai Tour, Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta (twice), Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne and Paris-Nice.
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
