Since 1991 only 3 bike manufacturers have won the Tour De France and 1 of them only once. I'll agree they may have been rebadged at times.

Pinarello,

Bianchi,

Trek.

I would say that has a lot to do with the Lance era. Should have been a Colnago this year. :wink:

Indurain - Pinarello
Riis - Pinarello
Ullrich - Pinarello

Pantani - Bianchi

Lance - Trek

Pereiro - Pinarello

Contador - Trek

Might have had a BMC in at the beginning of the week. Can't say I'm a big Lance fan before you think I'm bigging up Trek.

How many different manufacturers of EPO have won the Tour since 1991? Maybe that's more significant than the bike brand.

Perhaps Amgen should expand sponsorship from TdC to TdF. Use of any Amgen products would not only be allowed, but encouraged.

Probably a lot more than epo (allegedly) but that's another thread.

The Fact that Pinarello has been there with 4 different riders is pretty impressive. Can anyone compile all of the TDF podium winners from all of the above years? Be interesting to see all of the bikes that made podium & count those numbers. Regardless of doping....

Plus Delgado in 1988 as well.

I'd be interested to know who is the most 'Prolific Builder' as well?

Colnago built frames, Billato, Raleigh (special products) etc throw them in the hat.

I tend to think it's the rider who makes the biggest difference in the end, But a company's choice in who to sponsor is another factor(business smarts).

Obviously it's the rider winning, not the bike.
Another obvious meaningless piece of disinformation.

I would say that the best ratio would be the ratio of money spent by bike manufacturers sponsoring versus tour's won would be very similar (adjusted for inflation)

That would explain the prices of high end bikes & components... :wink: Doubt most companies would want to divulge that info.

Since 1991 no bike manufacturer has won the Tour.
Last one was LeMond, then Merckx and Coppi (do I forget anybody?) even if at the time they were not yet involved with bike manufacturing I think.
:wink:

If you include Riis, then you have to include Landis :roll:
