White/Red/Black is definitely getting tired. I like the blue.

I would mind it less if they didn't overdo it with the matching tape and saddles. White tape and saddles would have been classier

Apparently once only.

Anyway seeing the peloton the all blue Treks suddenly makes sense. Pretty much every other bike in the peloton is black plus another colour. The Treks just pop right out

New Orbea Orca, and Euskaltel is riding it in this Tour

Lighter, faster and stiffer. They have also dropped the BB30 bottom, and gone for a PF86 instead. Internal cable routing instead of the previous DCR system.

And Euskaltel edition. Not exactly pretty

Also, Cannondale has made a custom paintjob for Sagan, Glow in the Dark. Maybe for use on the last stage which will be ridden in the dark?

Anyone know what is going on with Flecha's gut in the breakaway today? Looks like he ate 30 or 40 cheeseburgers yesterday or is it some kind of camelbak type thing?


edit- Also that was quite the *f##k* of an ending huh? I like Goss's new leadout haha
