Pro bike: Esteban Chaves’s Giro stage 19-winning Scott Addict RC

A look at the Colombian climber’s bike from the Giro d’Italia

We’ve been visiting Scott Sports’s new HQ this week. Pride of place went to the extra-small frame size Scott Addict RC on which Esteban Chaves won Stage 19 of the Giro d’Italia last week.

It’s been a tough year for Chaves, with him starting out wondering if he wanted to continue as a pro, but he’s clearly overjoyed to be back on peak form. Scott has also made a video documenting how his love of cycling was rekindled by stepping back from competition last year and spending time with his friends and family in Colombia.
