The bikes of the Tour de France – VeloNews.com – VeloNews

There are 19 bike brands sponsoring the 22 teams of the 2020 Tour de France. Canyon, Willier, and Specialized have two teams apiece, while the other brands have all their eggs in one team’s basket.

Here, we present one bike as raced by each team. Please note that most brands have a few models for the team riders to choose from. So Movistar riders, for instance, can pick between the Canyon Aeroad aero bike and the Ultimate all-around race bike. Plus, of course, there are time trial machines in the mix as well.

For components, Shimano, Campagnolo, SRAM, and Rotor are all in the mix, with Shimano having the lion’s share of the teams.

Almost all teams are on disc brakes, with the notable exception of Jumbo-Visma, whose riders like Wout van Aert have been having great success racing on ‘old fashioned’ rim brakes.

Read on for a look at every team bike of the 2020 Tour de France.
