Our athletes couldn’t stay off podiums in July. In the men’s and women’s Tours de France, SRAM, Zipp, and TIME athletes won nine stages, five jerseys, and four spots on the final general classification podium, including overall winners Jonas Vingegaard (SRAM) and Demi Vollering (SRAM and TIME). We are proud to outfit these incredible athletes, not only with the equipment they need to win, but with special celebratory touches when they accomplish their dreams. These are the most stunning bikes from the Tour de France podium, built for some of our most inspiring atheletes.

Jonas Vingegaard

Jonas Vingegaard of Jumbo-Visma rolled down the Champs-Élysées to claim victory on a custom yellow Cervelo S5 built with a 1x RED eTap AXS drivetrain, a 52T chainring paired to a 10-33 cassette. Vingegaard didn’t just use 1x on the flat processional final day though; he employed a 52T ring with a 10-36 cassette on an S5 for many of the Tour’s punchy medium mountain stages. The 1x choice had enough gear range for the climbs while helping keep his aero bike close to the UCI weight limit, a distinct advantage when rivals were reaching for their climbing bikes. Yellow accents on the SRAM brake lever and crank didn’t hurt either.

In all, Vineggaard used five different gearing combinations to optimize for every stage of the three week long race. In the high mountains, he switched to an R5 climbing bike with a 2x drivetrain, using 52/39 rings and picking either a 10-33 or 10-36 cassette depending on the day’s profile. For his legendary time trial performance, he chose 56/43 rings with a 10-33 cassette on his P5.

Giulio Ciccone

The fight for the polka dots in the men’s Tour was fast and furious, but Giulio Ciccone was untouchable over the final week. His reward after weeks of breakaways was a red and white Trek Madone that can probably be seen from space. We got in on the polka dot party with accents on the brake levers, crank, and Giulio’s XPRO 12 pedals. Giulio rides 52/39 rings and a 10-33 as he climbs Alpine passes. 

Kasia Niewiadoma

With a daring attack and descent on the Col d’Aspin, Kasia Niewiadoma led the peloton onto the mythical Tourmalet on Stage 7 of the Tour de France Femmes, hanging on for second place on the day and securing the polka dot jersey of Best Climber. Canyon presented her with a stunning Ultimate CFR to celebrate, featuring Zipp 353 NSW wheels, 48/35 rings, 10-33 cassette custom red accents on her RED eTap AXS drivetrain, and custom polka dot plates on her TIME XPRO 12 pedals.

Lotte Kopecky

Lotte Kopecky is a superstar, but this year’s Tour de France Femmes was beyond anyone’s expectations. A stage win, six days in the maillot jaune, the lead in the green jersey competition wire to wire, and an extraordinary 2nd place in the final GC hardly scratch the surface of Kopecky’s amazing performance over eight days in France. For securing the green jersey of best sprinter, Kopecky was given a green “hulk” Specialized Tarmac SL7 featuring green details on her RED drivetrain and TIME XPRO 10 pedals.

Demi Vollering

It was a changing of the guard, a ride that felt like destiny. After a string of second places in Grand Tours, Demi Vollering stormed up the Tourmalet on Stage 7, dropping defending champion Annemiek van Vleuten and earning the maillot jaune with a mythical ride on the most famous mountain of the Tour. Her yellow bike is meant to evoke lions and sports matching yellow drivetrain and XPRO 12s. A fitting celebration for Demi’s first Tour win.

Optimization is key for racing success at the top level, and the breadth of gearing choices available for RED eTap AXS was apparent at the Tour. Over four weeks, SRAM athletes raced nine different chainring configurations and four different cassette sizes, ensuring that every day they had the exact gearing they needed.
