Bianchi + Team Road + Product
Lotto NL-Jumbo’s Dylan Groenewegen and Primoz Roglic know very well how to get noticed when riding on the Tour de France roads – their stage wins in the 2017 Grande Boucle stand to show just that.
Nevertheless, Bianchi made sure the two riders will star in the peloton thanks to two special edition Oltre XR4 frames, with special graphics dedicated to Groenewegen and Roglic, hand-painted by Bianchi’s experienced craftsmen in Treviglio, Italy. Both riders will use their customized models at the 2018 Tour de France, starting from Vendee on Saturday, July 7th.
The bike of Groenewegen, winner of 2017 Tour de France’s final stage in Paris Champs Elysees, is characterized by the Dutch Lion realized with an appealing metallic paint and the triple "X" on the top tube, the historical symbol of his birth city - Amsterdam.
As for Slovenian Primoz Roglic, his frame is decorated with an eagle flying over the Col du Galibier, where last year he “flew away” from his breakaway companions to claim a memorable solo win in Tour de France stage 17. Instead, the top tube shows a little icon with the “telemark move”, Roglic’s trademark podium celebration, inspired to his past career as professional ski jumper.
Oltre XR4 Special Edition frames for Groenewegen and Roglic will be soon available for sales.
