Maarten Wynants rode his Bianchi Oltre XR4 to the third place at Omloop Mandel-Leie-Schelde – 179,2 km around the Belgian town of Meulebeke, in the West Flanders province – on Saturday, August 26th. The Team LottoNL-Jumbo Belgian managed to make his way in a 15-man breakaway with  teammate Twan Castelijns and sprint for the podium behind winner Iljo Keisse and runner up Huub Duijn. Castelijns crossed the finish line in 7th place, while Dylan Groenewegen led the bunch 33 seconds down on the escapees, settling for 16th. For Wynants it was the first top-3 finish of his season.
Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with the revolutionary Countervail® Vibration Cancelling Technology:
  • 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.
