In the entire Elite Men racing field you can spot one single cro-moly frame. All others are made of Aluminium or Carbon, but Dams Godet has chosen to go the cro-mo route with his Standard 125R. Not only does he have the only real chrome bike on the circuit, the Frenchman has also made multiple finals on his steel bike showing that all the tricky fabrication and material is not needed to do well at the World Cup level. Enough for the intro. More on the bike.
