Le Tour, one continue!

The Tour started almost one week ago, we could shiver all along the breakaways in which the french guys played an essential role. Sylvain Chavanel from Cofidis team were already present in two long breakaways and took off at the same time the king of mountain jersey from Stéphane Augé shoulders. In the meantime, Laurent Lefèvre from Bouygues Telecom hardened the end of the race.

What’s this wheel?
About the front wheel of this Specialized, it’s an enigma. A carbon rim, approximately 40mm deep, with grey carbon spokes that seem molded into the rim. So bad the photograph couldn’t take the hub too, we would have had more clues…
Would we dare to say it’s a prototype realized by Mavic?
