Werner is also a pro mountain biker, so he opts for a 100mm stem, slightly shorter than what many pro ‘cross racers prefer. Photo: Spencer Powlison | VeloNews.com

TRP forks aren’t particularly common, but this full-carbon model isn’t weighing Werner down at 450 grams. Photo: Spencer Powlison | VeloNews.com

The one drawback to this TRP fork is that it only accepts post-mount brakes, so Werner will have to wait to run flat-mount calipers front and rear. Photo: Spencer Powlison | VeloNews.com

Although the bike is in nearly perfect condition, you can spot a bit of wear from Werner’s heels on the chain stays. Photo: Spencer Powlison | VeloNews.com
