Victor Koretzky had an incredible opening race in Albstadt as he beat Nino Schurter to the line. For the second round in Nove Mesto, he may not have been quite as successful with a 24th place finish at the end of the day. Despite this, he is still sitting third in the overall and his bike features plenty of interesting little details. Let's take a look at how Victor Koretzky set up his race machine for the tricky Nove Mesto course.
Victor is running FSA's Powerbox carbon cranks offering a claimed +/-2% accuracy power meter and hollow carbon composite cranks arms. The complete chainset has a claimed weight of 789 grams for a single ring setup. For Nove Mesto, this is paired with a super minimal chain guide for some added security against dropped chains.
For his front suspension, Victor is running the new Fox 34 SC fork. We have seen quite a few riders running beefier forks this year, choosing between the Fox 34 or the 35mm RockShox SID.
For this year he is running a full FSA KFX cockpit with some very bright orange foam grips. Victor likes to have his brake levers all the way out and set up to grab immediately.
For braking duties Victor is running a Shimano XTR calliper paired with Galfer rotors and some fancy oil slick bolts.
