Desroches has been a Garneau athlete for two years. This Gennix TR 1 Elite, which is the same model used by Lionel Sanders, is Garneau’s high-end TT bike equipped with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting. TMC has tested this bike — we have a full review of it here.

Desroches’ bike was painted in Garneau’s Dreamfactory. The company offers custom painting for all their bikes so athletes can truly create their dream bike, which is painted and assembled with your preferred components at the Quebec headquarters. It’s then delivered to your local bike shop and ready to go, exactly how you envisioned it.

Here are some photos from his Dreamfactory kit and bike customization process:
