Canadian cyclocross champion Michael van den Ham has a very special bike for the 2019-20 season with the Giant-Easton p/b Transition LifeCare UCI team. His new Giant TCX Advanced frame has been painted expertly by VéloColour and the final build is quite something to admire.

The bike was assembled by The Lantern Rouge at VéloColour’s studio in Toronto. Each detail is carefully taken care of as the bike’s components are installed on the freshly painted frame, which is mainly red with geometric patterns on the seat tube and fork. The rear triangle is a grey-blue while the Giant logo is a clean white, which will surely spend most of its time muddy. The bike is finished with a SRAM groupset, and Easton components and wheels.

In addition to van den Ham, the Giant-Easton p/b Transition LifeCare team has Canadian Jenn Jackson on its roster for this season. She’s already scored top-10 placings at the opening two rounds of the UCI World Cup.
