An exclusive look at Michael Matthews’ new Bianchi race bikes

With the start of the 2021 WorldTour season just weeks away, many riders from the pro peloton have been spending the offseason becoming accustomed to new bikes that they’ll be spending a lot of time with over the course of the year. 

Following the merry go round of bike swaps that occurred at the end of the 2020 season, many riders find themselves aboard a new brand altogether. As Scott Bikes transitioned from Mitchelton Scott (Now Team BikeExchange) to Team Sunweb (Now Team DSM), Michael Matthews moved in the opposite direction. Now riding for the newly-named Team BikeExchange, he’s spending his offseason familiarising himself with the Bianchi range, which last year were ridden by Jumbo Visma.
