Today we’re looking at Matt Skrdla’s brand spankin’ new Giant Trinity Advanced Pro time trial bike.  ProVelo, Matt’s shop of choice, just picked up Giant Bicycles and Matt was first in line to order the Trinity. His first time trial bike arrived just in time for the Steamboat Primer Time Trial which he handily won after only 3 rides on his new rig.   Matt has done well in road and crit stages in stage races but has struggled in the GC without a dedicated time trial bike.  I think we’re going to see a dramatic improvement in overall stage race results now.  There’s also talk of taking a crack at TT Nats next year.
