The team’s stage victories came courtesy of Dylan Groenewegen and Primož Roglič who were both presented with custom-painted framesets from Bianchi ahead of the race.
Dutchman Groenewegen, who won back-to-back stages during the race, celebrated his nationality and hometown with the Dutch Lion, Dutch orange and Dutch flag all represented on his frameset’s design. Three ‘X’s on the top tube also depicted his hometown of Amsterdam.

Roglič threatened the podium for much of the second half of the race and eventually finished fourth overall on GC by the time the race reached Paris. The Slovenian won stage 19 on his way to Paris, doubling up on his stage victory from the 2017 edition of the Tour de France.
Roglič’s frame commemorated his victory from last year’s race with a bald eagle flying over the Col du Galibier, while a figure of a ski jumper on the top tube of the bike pays homage to Roglič’s previous athletic career as a ski jumper.
