Tour de France bikes: Custom-painted framesets for the jersey winners in Paris - Gallery

Thomas' Pinarello, Sagan's Venge, Alaphilippe's Tarmac and Latour's Factor

As the 2018 Tour de France came to an end, the four jersey winners each rode custom-painted bikes for the final stage into Paris on Sunday.

Geraint Thomas (Team Sky) was presented with an all-yellow Pinarello Dogma F10 frameset ahead of the stage, with a hand-written message from Fausto Pinarello on the seat cluster of the frameset. Elite, Fizik and MOST also presented the general classification winner with matching bottle cages, saddle and cockpit components, respectively.

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) had the points competition's green jersey sealed way before the peloton arrived in Paris and only had to finish the race to assure a sixth title in the competition.

Sagan raced the 2018 Tour de France on specially painted 'Sagan Collection' framesets during the race, and the glitter theme continued on the green jersey winner's frameset for the final stage. The green glitter finish faded to a raw carbon finish towards the upper part of Sagan's frameset and was topped with an all-green S-Works Romin Evo saddle.

K-Edge also presented the world champion with a green out-front computer mount, which Sagan has used since taking the jersey earlier in the race.

Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors) won the mountains classification of the race through two stage wins and an array of attacks beginning on stage 10 of the race. Having worn the famous polka dot jersey since his stage 10 exploits, Specialized draped the Frenchman's S-Works Tarmac with red handlebar tape and decals before going all-out with a polka dot design for the final stage into Paris.

The white frameset is adorned with polka dots throughout, with red and white handlebar tape, red Tacx Ciro bottle cages and a limited edition, polka dot K-Edge out-front mount, even more colour is added to the flamboyant rider's bike.

Although not designed specifically to celebrate the best young rider's white jersey of the race, Pierre Latour (AG2R La Mondiale) has raced the majority of the 2018 Tour de France on an appropriately named Champs-Élysées edition Factor O2 frameset.

Dubbed celeste blue and looking nothing like the famous celeste blue of Bianchi, the frameset is paired with subtle black decals overlaying the metallic blue base coat. While the design might not match the white jersey won by Latour, the finish is perhaps more aesthetically pleasing than what might be an all-white design to celebrate the classification.
