Pro bike: Anthony Delaplace’s Tour de France Look 796

3D-printed cover hides Di2 junction box inside the top tube

Former French junior national champ Anthony Delaplace first raced the Tour back in 2011, but the 25-year-old is still on his way up.

After riding for the Swiss brand Kemo last year, Bretagne-Séché is racing the storied French brand Look at the 2015 Tour de France. Look launched this 796 time trial bike at the Tour.

The visually striking design incorporates some of the aero styling from Look’s 795 Aerolight road frame, such as front brake hidden inside the fork.

Look tucked the Di2 junction box in the top tube, covering it with a 3D-printed piece.

We expect this 3D-printed piece will be replaced by a molded cap for production versions of the 796

At 8.61 kg / 18.98lb, Delaplace’s TT rig isn’t light.

Bretagne-Séché is the only team at the Tour riding the Polar Keo Power Bluetooth power meter pedals.

Delaplace finished 144th in the Tour’s opening time trial, and his wild-card-entry Bretagne-Séché squad finished the team time trial in 18th, ahead of WorldTour teams like Katusha and Orica-GreenEdge.
