Third time's a charm for Team LottoNL-Jumbo's Dylan Groenewegen: the Dutchman rode Oltre XR4 to outsprint all his rivals topping Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta's stage-4, 199,2 km from Almodovar to Tavira (Portugal), on Saturday, February 17th. Groenewegen scored another success ahead of Italian Matteo Pelucchi and German John Degenkolb.
The great focus put by LottoNL Jumbo on sprint mechanisms, as well as the aero advantage provided by Oltre XR4 have turned Groenewegen into a sprint dominator in this early season: the Dutchman had previously claimed the opening stages both at Dubai Tour and Volta ao Algarve. Groenewegen also regained the Points classification's jersey in the process.
Enhanced with the revolutionary Countervail® vibration cancelling technology, the Bianchi Oltre XR4 high-performance aero road racing machine allows rider to hold the most aerodynamic position at higher speeds and for longer, in order to maximize the aerodynamic advantage. The Oltre XR4 was designed to be at the absolute cutting edge of aerodynamics thanks to advanced CFD and Flow Visualization – technologies borrowed straight from aerospace and F1 car design: technology that turns into valuable watts in head-to-head finishes like today’s.
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
