Tutte le Biciclette del Tour De France 2020
NTT Pro Cycling’s BMC
Model shown here: Teammachine SLR
Notes: This is the one WorldTour team with wheels made in Utah by ENVE.
Israel Start-Up Nation’s Factor
Model shown here: One
Wheels: Black, Inc.
Notes: Factor makes a number of eye-catching bikes, including this One with the bayonet fork design that comes up in front of the head tube.
Model shown here: Scultura Disc
Notes: The team formerly known as Bahrain-Merida has the Reacto Disc and the Scultura Disc to choose from. The team is racing entirely on disc brakes this year for road stages, but the Merida Warp TT Team bike is a rim-brake model.
Model shown here: Ultimate
Notes: Nairo Quintana, this team’s hope for the overall, races on a size XS — one of the smallest bikes of the Tour de France.
EF Pro Cycling’s Cannondale
Model shown here: SystemSix
Notes: The American-based team has been racing on the American Cannondale brand for six seasons now. They also have the Super Six all-around race bike in their arsenal.
UAE Team Emirates’ Colnago
Model shown here: Concept
Notes: UAE riders have been racing to wins and podium spots this year on rim brakes, though riders at the Tour can choose between rim brakes and disc brakes depending on the stage. Riders will likely spend most of their time on the Colnago V3R, rather than the aero Concept, pictured below.
Model shown here: Xelius
Notes: Lapierre has been the solitary bike sponsor of this stalwart French squad for more than 20 years.
Model shown here: Aeroad Disc
Notes: Although built and billed as an aero bike, the Aeroad has often been raced on the rough roads of Paris-Roubaix, and has won at the cobbled Tour of Flanders.
Model shown here: Oltre XR4
Notes: Look, ma – no disc brakes here. (Jumbo-Visma certainly has the option of disc bikes, too.)
Model shown here: Madone
Notes: The Wisconsin brand’s aero bike, the Madone, features a pivot point at the junction of the top tube and the seat tube, which allows the back of the bike to flex a little for rider comfort. The new Emonda is an ultralight race bike with some more subtle aero shaping.
CCC Team’s Giant
Model shown here: TCR Advanced SL
Notes: Riders have the TCR Advanced SL in both rim and disc to choose from, as well as the Propel Advanced SL Disc aero bike.
AG2R-La Mondiale’s Eddy Merckx
Bicycle: Eddy Merckx
Model shown here: Stockeu69
Components: Shimano / Rotor
Notes: While the Stockeu69 is the climber’s choice with rim brakes, the team also has the 525 Disc should they prefer hydraulic brakes.
Model shown here: Venge
Notes: Until the recent launch of the S-Works Tarmac SL7, Bora-Hansgrohe had been racing the SL6 and this Venge aero bike. Some riders may continue to race on the Venge.
Model shown here: Helium SLX
Notes: This quintessentially Belgian squad races quintessentially Belgian bikes, with a choice between the Noah Fast aero bike, the Helium SLX climbing bike, and the Fenix SL all-around race bike.
B&B Hotels-Vital Concept-KTM’s KTM
Model shown here: Revelator Alto Sonic
Wheels: DT Swiss
Notes: Better known for its motorcycles, KTM also makes bikes.
Team Ineos Grenadiers’ Pinarello
Model shown here: Dogma
Notes: Pinarello gave the team a special paint job for the Tour de France.
Model shown here: Tarmac SL7
Notes: Specialized’s new Tarmac S-Works SL7 blends the low-drag shaping of the company’s Venge aero bike with the handling and ride-feel characteristics of the straight-ahead race bike, the Tarmac. No rim brakes to see here.
Cofidis’ De Rosa
Bicycle: De Rosa
Model shown here: SK Bianca Elia Viviani
Notes: Cofidis also has the Merak Rossa Team disc-brake bike as an option.
Total Direct Energie’s Wilier Triestina
Bicycle: Wilier Triestina
Model shown here: 0 SLR
Notes: Ursus is an Italian brand, and Direct Energie is its one team in the Tour.
Astana’s Wilier Triestina
Bicycle: Wilier Triestina
Model shown here: Wilier 0 SLR
Notes: Check out the clean lines on the front of the bike with its internal routing through the bar/stem and head tube, plus the huge pulley on the CeramicSpeed derailleur hanger for minimal friction.
Model shown here: Addict RC
Notes: This Australian team also has the Foil aero bike.
Model shown here: S5
Notes: One of the most distinctive bikes of the Tour de France, the S5 features a unique, triangular stem that reaches up to the handlebars.
