Rolling on Bontrager RSL 37v wheels, a gravel version of our wheels which feature a wider profile. We paired these with 30mm Pirelli P Zero tubeless tires and a foam insert. 0 punctures from the whole Team!
A 10-33 tooth cassette gave Lizzie plenty of choice over the cobbles. Smooth shifting and reliable braking courtesy of a SRAM Red eTap AXS disc groupset.
Our team mechanic added an insurance policy to the derailleur – a simple elastic band to ensure the battery stayed in place.
The seventeen cobbled sectors which made up the first Paris-Roubaix Femmes. The handlebars feature SRAM blips for extra shifting options.
No gloves for Queen Lizzie…
After her final recon Lizzie requested her worn-in road bike saddle was swapped onto her Domane. Like a comfy old pair of gym shoes.
