Cadel Evans’ Special Edition BMC SLR01 for Final Santos Tour Down Under

Cadel Evans with his custom BMC SLR01 for the 2015 Santos Tour Down Under

Cadel Evans has been a staple of the peloton for the better part of the past 10 years. As a farewell gesture, the gracious folks at BMC Racing have outfitted the 2011 Tour de France champion with a customized BMC SLR01 just for the Aussie in his final stage race in front of his countrymates.

Highly-regarded as one of the best all-rounders of the peloton, the BMC SLR01 is typically available in a red/black color scheme. I’d daresay that the white gloss frameset is quite the looker and BMC might do well considering other color options in the future.
