They look like LEW composites. They are in nevada and make killer custom rims, super light.

Campy Bora's or the like. He's ridden Campy equipment including their wheels, except for Time pedals, since Mercatone switched from Wilier and Shimano to Bianchi and Campy. I haven't seen the Bora's listed in Campy catalogs for a couple of years but I'm sure they, or something like them, can still be had from Campy by Marco.
Another question from the photo- crank arms???zelig1

and if you saw the broadcast on TV is the crank arms. Just anodized black or perhaps carbon? Any thoughts?

Campy Only ( touched on the carbon crank arms last month, and showed a picture of what we are seeing in the Giro this year. You can get a better view of them on Bianchi's website ( and they are described as the "Bianchi Carbon" cranks. They are found on both the high end Campy Record equipped bikes and the Dura Ace equipped bikes. Can't tell you right now who makes them, but I doubt it's Campy or Shimano. Intriguing though, eh!

I checked the latest Bianchi catalog, and they are either making their own wheels, or rebadging, but the high end bikes come with those wheels. Almost look like a Campagnolo clone.
Maybe they are following what Trek does and trying to do everything in-house.
Those sure look like Ascent Pro'sJ.S.

I noticed that also. I believe I saw some Alessio guys riding Velomax also.
