More pictures of the new Cervélo R5

We have managed to get hold of more pictures of the new Cervélo R5, spotted at the Dubai Tour

Team Dimension Data have been spotted with a new bike, believed to be an updated Cervélo R5 at the Dubai Tour. We managed to take some photos of the bike, which is being ridden by Jay Thomson.

Cervélo is the bike sponsor of Dimension Data, who are currently racing in the Dubai Tour with their star sprinter Mark Cavendish. Although the team has the lightweight Cervélo R5 climbing bike at their disposal, in recent times they have almost exclusively opted to ride the slightly heavier, but more aerodynamic Cervélo S5.
