Egan Bernal became the seventh Team Ineos (formerly Team Sky) rider to win the Tour de France in eight years when he rode onto the Champs-Élysées on this custom-painted Pinarello Dogma F12.
It has become something of a tradition for the champion elect to ride a yellow bike on the final stage and Ineos’s mechanics built Bernal’s Dogma F12 ahead of the final stage. Oh, and Fausto Pinarello signed the top tube to mark the occasion.
Peter Sagan also rode into the French capital on a custom-painted bike, his Specialized S-Works Venge, to celebrate his seventh trip to the Tour de France podium in the green jersey, while King of the Mountains winner Romain Bardet completed the set on an Eddy Merckx StockEU60 frame in a polka-dot finish.
While Sagan’s Bora-Hansgrohe team used disc brakes throughout the Tour, Ineos is among the squads to remain dedicated to rim brakes.
Bernal’s bike is equipped with Dura-Ace R9100 direct mount brakes, with the STI levers and derailleurs coming from Shimano’s Dura-Ace R9150 Di2 groupset.
The Shimano theme continues with Dura-Ace C60 wheels, wrapped in Continental Competition ALX 25mm tubular tyres, while the pedals are also from Shimano’s top-tier groupset.
The Talon Ultra 1K Aero cockpit comes from Most, Pinarello’s in-house components brand, and is wrapped in yellow handlebar tape, while a yellow Fizik Antares 00 saddle, yellow Elite Fly bidons, Elite Vico Carbon bottle cages (also with yellow detail, of course) and a Garmin Edge 830 computer complete the build.
Take a closer look at Bernal’s bike in the photo gallery above.
