The 2021 Tour de France is currently ongoing and after 11 stages, it looks TADEJ POGACAR seems untouchable with a huge 5 minutes+ lead in the general classification category. 

Twenty-three teams of eight riders started out astride with the most high-end bikes money can buy. This is the biggest shopping window for bike manufacturers and we will be showing them out here – what bikes are sponsoring what teams. Drool away….

  1. Colnago V3Rs TdF for UAE Team Emirates

Right after Pogacar took the Yellow Jersey in stage 8, Colnago unveiled a new bike to be ridden by the defending champion. The frame is the Colnago V3Rs TdF, ultralight and aerodynamic, excellent on any type of terrain: flat, uphill and mixed routes. The frame weighs just 790 grams in size 50s in raw disc version (with the metal parts placed and glued). 

2. Pinarello Dogma F for Team Ineos Grenadiers

The Dogma F is claimed to be stiffer, lighter and more aero than the F12.

3. Cervelo R Series for Jumbo Visma Cycling

Belgian champion Wout van Aert made the most of the stage 11 double climb of the Mont Ventoux featuring a still unnamed version Cervelo’s R Series. It could be R6 or R5 disc but Wout van Aert rode it to a splendid breakaway stage victory, even when he is not what we may classify as a pure climber.

4. Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL7 Deceuninck-Quick-Step

Mark Cavendish’s Tour de France green jersey-winning Specialized Tarmac S-Works SL7. This is the bike that Mark Cavendish rode to three sprint wins and into the green jersey in the first 2 weeks of the 2021 Tour de France.
