Oltre RC Tour de France: the Official Bike of Grande Boucle
Bianchi and the Tour de France join forces to create a new and unique collector’s limited edition Oltre RC, run of only 176 units, the same number of athletes participating in the 2023 Grande Boucle. This is the first time together for two absolute icons of cycling and world sport.
Prestige, exclusivity, charm, and innovation are all encompassed in each of the 176 models of the limited and numbered edition Oltre RC Tour de France. A bike that embodies the essence of what brings together Bianchi and the Tour de France: two true love brands in the World of cycling, that have made history of the sport and continue to shape its future with innovation.
For the 2023 edition of the Grande Boucle, Bianchi is proud to collaborate with A.S.O., the organizing agency for the Tour de France, to become the new official bicycle of the world’s most prestigious stage race.
This agreement marks a new and significant milestone in Bianchi’s history, a little more than 12 months before the 2024 Tour de France’s historic start from Florence. It’s a first for two of the most beloved brands in the world of cycling, matching Bianchi’s name with the third largest sporting event in terms of global media impact, following only the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup.
Bianchi and the Tour de France have developed a special edition of Bianchi Reparto Corse‘s flagship model. Oltre RC Tour de France Limited Edition enhances the aerodynamic concept of the cycling World’s first hyperbike, which uniquely employs the revolutionary Air Deflector technology, adding exclusive elements that are tied to the identity and prestige of the Tour de France in a fascinating encounter.
For this special occasion, the Bianchi Reparto Corse has developed a new exclusive color scheme, starting with the unmistakable Celeste Bianchi and transforming it with shifting shades, adorned with metallic and iridescent effects. It is a modern version of the traditional Celeste Bianchi, harmoniously merging with the iridescent yellow-gold, the iconic symbol of the Tour de France. Each of the 176 models of the Oltre RC Tour de France Limited Edition is hand-painted in Italy, with the Grande Boucle logo positioned on the right side of the seat tube.
