Jonas Vingegaard’s 2022 Bike size


This post is about Jonas Vingegaard’s 2022 Bike size.
The Danish pro cyclist races the UCI World Tour season with Jumbo-Visma team.
Vingegaard got the public attention by finishing second at the Tour de France 2021 and being the only rider able to push Tadej Pogacar to his limits on stages 17 and 18.

Jonas Vingegaard is officially Primoz Roglic’s “lieutenant” and he is supposed to be the last man standing to support his leader in the last kilometers of mountain stages.
It is why Vingegaard has a lot of second spot finishes throughout the season when he races alongside his team leader.
His Tour de France 2021’s second place in General Classification (GC) is however the result of his talent versus Pogacar.

Two riders for One goal

What I am trying to explain here is strategically team directors try to assemble teams with lieutenants that are of similar size and ability to their team leader to ensure they can swap bikes if there is an urgent need and no team support car nearby. As we all know, every second counts in the GC.

Size matters

Jonas Vingegaard is 1m75 tall and his 2022 bike is a Cervelo R5 size 54cm.

The stem length is 110mm and the bar width is 400mm (C-C). His seat post has a 25mm setback.
I am missing Jonas’ saddle position, however, being the lieutenant of Roglic it can give me a direction to look at.

Criterium du Dauphine 2022 – Stage 8 – Saint-Alban-Leysse / Plateau de Solaison (138,8 km) – Primoz ROGLIC wins Criterium du Dauphine 2022 and let his team mate win the stage Jonas VINGEGAARD (JUMBO VISMA)

Primoz Roglic is 1m77 and ride a Cervelo R5 size 52cm…
Oh wow! That’s super interesting.

Vingegaard is 2cm shorter than Roglic, yet he rides a size 54cm. See on the linked picture how the two riders look so apart on their bikes: Criterium du Dauphine Stage 8 Roglic and Vingegaard ride away.

Roglic’s saddle is set at 735mm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the saddle.
As they can swap bikes as a temporary solution in case of a mechanical issue on an important stage, I can see they have a close-fitting position on their bikes despite the frame difference.
That would work as an emergency bike swap while waiting for the team support car.

Most riders of 1m75 among the professional peloton ride a size 52cm frame.

Jonas Vingegaard rides with 172.5mm crank length and Shimano Dura-Ace SPD pedals, and white color Shimano Dura-Ace S-Phyre RC903 cycling shoes.

Marginal Gains

On the mountain stages of the Criterium du Dauphine 2022, Jonas Vingegaard’s bike is fitted with Shimano Dura-Ace RC36 tubeless wheels (WH-R9270-C36-TL) and Vittoria Corsa Graphen 700×25.
The 12-speed Shimano groupset is tuned with Ceramicspeed bottom-brackets ceramic bearings and AbsoluteBlack GraphenLube chain lubricant.

There is also a smart little accessory that does get much attention as it deserves. Jonas Vingegaard’s bike has bar plug adapters acting as bumpers on the end of the bars. They weight 8gr for a pair and it does protect the end of the carbon handlebars in a crash. The mechanics have to change the handlebars in case there are any cracks on the handlebars after a crash so these protectors helps protect the bars from getting damaged thus saving the mechanics a lot of precious time on a Grand Tour. The bar end plugs are made in Netherlands by a company named “CloseTheGap” and the plugs name is “SaveMyBar.

Jonas Vingegaard’s Cervelo R5 2022 total costs approximately US$ 14,000.
