Elia Viviani was among the star attractions at the 78th edition of the Six Days of Gent, which saw the Olympic Omnium Champion pairing up with Iljo Keisse.
Viviani was hard to miss out on the track, thanks to the stunning custom Pinarello Maat track bike he was riding on the legendary Kuipke velodrome.
Despite being in the middle of the off-season for the road cyclists, the Deceuninck-Quick Step duo won the Belgian event after taking the final sprint in the final Madison.
Keisse set a new record by winning the Gent Six seven times in the ‘t Kuipke velodrome.
According to Pinarello, the MAAT was developed in conjunction with ‘top Team GB and Italian athletes’ during the time it provided bikes for Great Britain ahead of the Olympics.
The desire was to create the ultimate track machine and the 60.1 utilises ultra-oversized sections as well as trapezoidal tube shapes to give the frame strength and rigidity.
