Looked like they stripped the paint and stuck some stickers on.. wasn't a Kestrel?
From what I saw, the seat stays looked different. So did the seat cluster. Could have just been me, but it looked non-standard. But I guess there isn't really standard equipment when it comes to RR.

It looked like last years DeRosa King3. From the front view the curves of the fork and seatstays resembled that of the King's.

I noticed that too. At first I assumed that they repainted the bikes because there was talk that the riders were given spray paint to "customize" their rides. There was someone else on Rock, I think he was in a break, who had a black fork on what looked like the Kestral frame. I suspect it wasnt the fork that came with the bike.

If you noticed his bike even had the Stella Azzura stems that they used last year and not the PRO's that they are using this year.

I know cycling news had Paco's bike weighing in at over UCI limit. Perhaps Oscar wanted a lighter bike for the difficult climbing day.

The helmet though it what got me.
