Team Sky proved to not just have the best support cars, but also the best rider. Fending off plenty of attacks and surviving the final stage rolling champagne party, Chris Froome took home the yellow jersey with an overall win of the 2015 Tour de France.
Check out the team’s Pinarello bikes below…
Froome and double Gold Medalist Geraint Thomas’ bikes were kept on the outside edge of the team cars, putting them in quick reach. The second car behind it had duplicates so no matter which one was where, they were ready.
Froome’s bikes were running some “unofficial” chainrings…
The wild looking Osymmetric rings had their logos taped off with varying degrees of success, but the shape would give them away regardless. If there were any doubt remaining about the benefits of non-round chainrings, here’s a pretty good nail in the coffin.
Fellow teammate Peter Kennaugh had a special paint scheme to celebrate the fact that he’s British national road race champ.
The water bottles were marked with their names for sports drink, with code for what was in them. Bottles with plain water had blue bite valves.
The Pinarello Bolide carried the riders through the time trial stages.
The bikes were outfitted with the Textreme PRO carbon tubular wheels. The team originally helped test the wheels during development and had first dibs on them last year.
The cockpits had a wide range of bar shapes and extension angles and spacers.
Richie Porte’s Bolide was custom painted to celebrate his winning the Australian national championship for road race and individual time trial.
Congratulations to Chris Froome on his second Tour de France win!
