Jarno Trulli rides a bicycle

Lotus F1 Formula One driver Jarno Trulli of Italy rides his bicycle in the pit lane of Interlago racetrack, as teams prepare for Sunday’s Brazilian GP F1 race at Interlagos racetrack in Sao Paulo.

I don’t know Specialized’s tri bikes so somebody help me out with this — I’m guessing a Specialized Transition something-or-other?

Update: Thanks to those in the comments and on Twitter who identified this as the Specialized S-Works Shiv. The Shiv started life as a Time Trial bike but is now sold (in limited quantities) to triathletes. The “Shiv Module” — which is the frame, fork, stem, handlebar, crankset, bottom bracket, and brakes — by itself runs about $6,500.

    Yes, with the Zipps & those cranks it looks like the S-Works Transition.

    The transition has a more sloping top tube. This looks more like the Shiv to me.
