Which groupset will AG2R use on their disc-brake TT bikes?

They could always just use the rim-brake TT group with TRP Spyres if Campagnolo doesn’t have hydraulic levers ready for them.

Bit strange to see Caleb Ewan posting "official pictures" with his bike with an 11s Campy EPS.
Sorry for the idiotic giant size.

Didn't he have a set of custom thumb shifty thingys made with his 11sp shifters?
I'm sure it's something like that or gear jumps or something.

To be honest I don't think most people could tell the difference between Campag 11s and 12s, it's only the RD that looks appreciably different.

I'm guessing you'll still see tubeless on Schachmann's bike if he's looking to insert himself in a breakaway.

@ShimanoROAD for neutral support at Tour de France !

@ShimanoROAD will adorn the neutral support cars in all A.S.O. races, offering all riders assistance to get back on the road as quickly as possible in the event of a crash or mechanical issue.

Whether they’re in yellow or in last, we've got the back of your favourite riders in your favourite races. We’re proud to announce that @ShimanoROAD will provide Neutral Support at all major @amaurysport races in like @LeTour, @Paris_Roubaix & @LiegeBastogneL
So Shimano will provide neutral service for Campy and SRAM-equipped teams? What kind of equipment and spare parts will they have on offer?
For sure. This will be new. Since when does Shimano support Campy or SRAM (XDR) cassette options?
It won't be new at all. Shimano has had a widespread neutral service presence in the World Tour for years and years. It's not like they've just ignored Campag and Sram teams at all those races, is it?

So do they stock non-Shimano wheels for neutral service? Or do they have shimano wheels equipped with campag and sram freehubs that are not available to the general public? Or do they just drive past those teams not using Shimano equipment?

Genuinely curious.

De Gendt is posting pics where it looks like he's riding Bora WTO 60 wheels but they are unbranded for some reason.

According to a source wihtin Campagnolo it's because he prefers an 11-27 cassette.
