Bring on the Bling

July 07, 2015

We love bike bling.

Thanks to Robbie McEwen for getting our day off to a great start with some serious eye candy.

Robbie cruises around the team area to check out:

  • Fabian Cancellara's Trek Madone, given a sweet yellow paint job in celebration of his yellow jersey on Stage 2 of this year's Tour. Alas that will be his first and only yellow given the shocking news of his back fracture after Stage 3's terrible pile-up.

  • Andre Greipel's put himself in the green jersey thanks to his stage win, so his customized green 'Gorilla' Ridley even comes complete with a gorilla saddle for the big man.

  • Katusha's Joaquim 'Purito' Rodriguez got himself a 'smoking cigar' Selle saddle in reference to the ease of his win.

  • Katusha's Alexander Kristoff's Canyon comes complete with a snowflake for the Norwegian superstar.

  • Poland's Michal Kwiatkowski of Etixx - Quick-Step has his Specialized splattered in World Championship colors.

  • And forever the attacking shark, Astana's Vincenzo Nibali's Specialized is ready to bite the legs off its rivals.

Plenty more awesome Tour coverage this way
