Followers of domestic racing will be familiar with the green and yellow livery of Team Aevolo.
A force at the top level of U.S. cyclocross and criterium races, the squad is one of just two American teams focused on under-23 development.
At the end of the 2021 season, the squad graduated a slew of riders.
There are 10 men on the 2022 roster as of now, with Gabriel Shipley and Tristan Jussame returning for another season. They are joined by Toby Klein, Matt Warren, Brooks Wienke, and Luca Scuriatti all of whom are moving up from the junior ranks. And Sean Guydish is also on the roster for 2022.
Here’s a look at Guydish’s Cannondale Supersix Evo with a mix of Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 and Ultegra R8170 components.
The Cannondale SuperSix EVO Hi-Mod is the American bike maker’s all-around aero road bike that’s also lightweight.
It is the same bike that EF Education-EasyPost and EF Education-Tibco-SVB race.
The Shimano PRO Vibe cockpit, while not stock for this Cannondale, is Aevolo team sponsor-correct.
Although shifting wires and brake lines are routed underneath the bar tape, and not internally in the PRO Vibe handlebars, they still discretely tuck into the head tube, and keep out of the wind.

The Vittoria Corsa Graphene 2.0 tire is fast, and in our experience, supple.

A full Shimano drivetrain.
That’s a Shimano Ultegra R8170 front derailleur and a Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 crank (with a power meter). Yep, Guydish is using an 12-speed setup that’s a mix-and-match of Shimano’s best, and most cost-effective.
The Shimano Ultegra Di2 R8170 rear derailleur performance is almost indistinguishable from the Dura-Ace version, with only a slight weight penalty, and a much lower price tag.

The Shimano Ultegra disc brake calipers provide nearly identical stopping action as the more-expensive Dura-Ace versions, at a lower cost, and only with a few more grams of weight which is imperceptible once Guydish has this bike moving.
The rear rotor has some wear but still looks to have a lot of life remaining.
