    What's the big secret in the Pro Peloton? It's Classified.

    After identifying potential time savings from the Classified Powershift system, team INEOS Grenadiers conducted research and testing to confirm its efficacy. The results identified measurable improvements in efficiency and speed and so the team made the decision to incorporate the technology into the equipment list for cycling's most prestigious events. This promised to give riders a competitive edge on the sport's grandest stages.

    Historic moment for Classified

    The first time the team put the equipment to the 'race test' was during one of the world's greatest stage races, the Giro d'Italia. Team INEOS Grenadiers achieved outstanding results during the first time trial: Filippo Ganna (2nd), Magnus Sheffield (3rd), and Thymen Arensman (4th) secured top-four finishes, with Geraint Thomas also making the top ten.

     

    Our technology offers unparalleled control, efficiency, and reliability, giving professional teams the confidence they need to support their athletes to achieve incredible results.

    Get ready for a true gravel adventure

    The Start 

    The race began in Zakopane, Poland’s winter capital. At the crack of dawn, our ever-enthusiastic organiser Piko sent us off up a gruelling 20-percent incline toward the first mountain ridge. This initial ascent unveiled stunning views over the city and its snow-dusted peaks, setting the tone for the adventure ahead. At the start of such races, it’s common to see competitors pushing too hard, caught up in the initial rush of adrenaline. Maintaining a steady, swift pace is key, yet many find themselves overtaking only to falter later. I chatted with a few seasoned racers in the first few kilometres, which bolstered my confidence in the event and its organisers. Predictably, I was passed by nearly everyone within the first hour, but I watched them closely, wondering when our paths would cross

    Gravel and Glory: Piotr Havik Secures 4th at Unbound Gravel with Classified

    The Classified x Ridley Team fuelled by Foodmaker went to Kansas for Unbound Gravel racing for victory. Winning on the most revered of routes is a dream for every team and athlete, and we were there for the fight.

    It takes a team to get on the podium

    In what transpired to be an amazing battle, Piotr Havik sprinted to 4th place after an intense 327 km of unforgiving gravel terrain. While Piotr had to do the pedalling by himself, a highly motivated team was with him to support him throughout the ride. A superfast 'F1 pitstop style' wheel change to deal with a slow puncture at a critical moment in the race made all the difference, and although Toby Perry had to quit after 100 miles due to sickness, it did not stop him from taking action in the support car.

    Another success story for us was the young Belgian racer Arno Van den Broeck, who received a phone call from Team Manager Nick Sannen just seven days before the race. “Do you want to race Unbound for us? We have a rider registered who, unfortunately, is injured and can’t
