Classics star Fabian Cancellara will not use disc brakes despite testing them in training this winter because he does not want to make the switch in 2016, his final season.

Trek Factory Racing tested the brakes in the Vuelta a España this August/September and Cancellara is using road and cyclo-cross bicycles with them at home in Bern, Switzerland.
