Team LottoNL-Jumbo and Bianchi stepped on the podium in Tour de France stage 10 (Périguex - Bergerac, 178 Km), on Tuesday July 11th. Equipped with Oltre XR4, the 24-year-old Dutchman launched himself in a hectic sprint, finishing third on the finish line behind Germany’s Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb.
In the stage following the rest day, Groenewegen gave Bianchi Oltre XR4 and Team LottoNL-Jumbo another podium spot, after the second place grabbed by Robert Gesink in stage 8, in Station des Rousses, on Saturday July 8th.
The 2016 Dutch National Champion occupies the eighth place in the points classification with 64 points, whilst another Team LottoNL-Jumbo rider, George Bennett is currently overall tenth 3:53 behind leader Christopher Froome. Slovenian Primoz Roglic occupies the second place in the KOM Classification with 30 points in view of the Pyrenean stages.
Bianchi supplies the Team LottoNL-Jumbo with four models engineered with Countervail® viscoelastic carbon material:
  • Oltre XR4, designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control
  • Specialissima, the ultralight frame, perfect for GC riders, it’s extra stiff for increased traction and stability at high speeds, and maximum control on the descents
  • Aquila CV, the ultimate time trial machine, it’s designed to increase power output and rider's energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke
  • Infinito CV, the ideal bike for the Classics, it provides remarkable control on uneven surfaces and reduces muscular fatigue
