Looks a little peculiar to route brake cables that way. But with those old style calipers and their anchor on the left side, that's probably the smoothest way to do it. It's usually difficult to keep the front caliper centered if you go the traditional route of left aero lever to that old style front side-pull, because the housing tends to push the pad down on one side.

Now, if you have other bikes with traditional or opposite routing, it might take you a little while on your ride to acquaint yourself with this setup. That's more of a problem if you switch between those bikes often.
