Did you notice they are using the dura ace post and not the Colnago carbon post? Is it just the deal they have with Shimano, or is it a personal preference on the peloton?

I'd bet it's solely Shimano sponsoring considering the large "Shimano" printed on the side of the post. The Colnago (ITM) carbon post is a fine seatpost. It offers a bit more setback than some other traditional posts and the separate angle adjusment allows very fine tuning of the saddle angle. The saddle can also be moved fore/aft without upsetting the angle.
