Elia Viviani took his first stage victory at the Tour de France on Tuesday and a second in as many days for his team Deceuninck-QuickStep. Teammate Julian Alaphillipe won stage 3 on his Specialized S-Works Tarmac Disc, while Viviani opted for all-out speed on the flatter stage 4 with an S-Works Venge.
Like Alaphilippe’s Tarmac, Viviani’s Venge runs a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9170 disc brake groupset, but instead of Roval CLX 50 wheels, Viviani ran the deeper and more aerodynamic CLX 64 option.
Photographed here a day before the race started, Viviani’s Venge was setup with tubeless S-Works Turbo Rapidair tyres, which several Deceuninck-QuickStep and Bora-Jansgrohe riders are likely to test throughout the race. For his stage victory, however, Viviani stayed with the tried and tested tubular tyre option.
After four stages, Deceuninck-QuickStep are halfway to achieving their stage haul from last year’s race, in which they won two stages apiece though Alaphilippe and Fernando Gaviria.
