Probike: Paul Voss, from Rostock in Germany, is one of two Germans in the NetApp-Endura team for the Tour de France. This season, he has been riding the Fuji Altamira, which, for a long time, was the preferred bike model for the US team. However, it is expected that the Altamira will get a new in-house companion, which we will of course write about.
Voss was able to qualify for NetApp-Endura’s team before the yearly deadline. Considering that this racing stable from Raublingen is currently one of the best ProConti-teams, Voss’ achievement is very impressive. The team’s success is doubtlessly underlined by the invitation to join this year’s Tour.
To prepare for the upcoming challenges, Voss fully trusted in his Fuji Altamira, which is equipped with the most recent Shimano Dura-Ace 9000. He uses a gear transmission ratio of 53 to 39 teeth at the front and a cassette with a sprocket range of 11 to 27 teeth at the back.
Additionally, the bike is fitted with high quality components by Swiss company Oval, including the 950 wheelset, the 900 carbon post, a 713 stem and a 910-SL carbon handlebar. The seatpost measures 27.2mm and is mounted with a Prologo Scratch Pro TR saddle. Vittoria supplies the bike’s tyres with their very own Corsa Evo Pro.
