Even if he’s used to happy endings on the Champs Elysées (13 Tour de France won), Fausto Pinarello always follows the same ritual: he prepares the Yellow Bike at the very last time, when he’s almost 100% sure to win the Grande Boucle. Once again it all started on Friday evening. After a crucial hill stage, the frame painters started working on Chris Froome’s Yellow Dogma F10, size 56. Before the frame was secretly shipped to Paris on Saturday morning, FP added a final touch to thank personally Chris for this extraordinary fourth victory. This frame will certainly remain as a part of the cycling history.

This year is also the first victory in the Tour’s team GC – a classification Team Sky led from start to finish – with seven minutes and 14 seconds over nearest rivals. A fourth win elevates Froome to fifth on the all-time list of winners, with just Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain now ahead of the Kenyan-born Brit. A result made possible also thanks to an accurate set up of the bikes used during the Tour: Dogma F10, Dogma F10 X-Light and Bolide TT.
