Last August, Team Sky announced the signing of one of the biggest rising stars in the sport.

At just 20 years of age, Egan Bernal has a top-ten at the Tour of the Alps, managed top-twenty finishes at Tirreno-Adriatico, Milan-Torino and Il Lombardia plus he won the 2017 Tour de l’Avenir title, to name just a few.

Turning 21 on the cusp of the 2018 season, Bernal is now riding for the biggest team in the WorldTour in Team Sky, after two successful seasons with the Italian Pro Continental squad Androni-Sidermec-Bottechia.

Pinarello launched the Dogma F10 ahead of the Tour Down Under in 2017, and for 2018, the legendary Italian frame-builders have given Team Sky’s all-round race machine a fresh lick of paint for the new season.

Keeping the black base colour and blue-and-white dot-dash data-driven design, Bernal’s Dogma F10 has additional flashes of white inside the frame triangle and to the rear of the seat-tube and seatpost.

On the top tube, Pinarello has added a bold blue strip that has become an icon of the British team since their inception in 2010.

Complementing the predominantly black frame is Shimano’s flagship Dura-Ace R9150 groupset, which also comes in an all-black finish.

Ahead of the Tour Down Under, both Shimano and Stages stated that they would be providing Team Sky with power meters for the new season and later clarified that despite the commitment, the team was not obliged to use either meter in 2018.

Tellingly, however, each of the seven riders at the Tour Down Under are all equipped with Stages offerings ahead of the WorldTour opener.

Along with a new paint job, Team Sky have also switched cockpits for the new season.

Shimano’s sister company PRO provided the team with handlebar, stem and bar-tape combinations for more than five seasons, but Team Sky have now switched to Pinarello’s component-wing MOST for their cockpits.

Team Sky retains the partnerships with Fizik and Continental for their saddle and tyre suppliers respectively.
