New brand Kemo cracks into the Tour with Bretagne
This article was originally published on BikeRadar.
Kemo is not a giant among bike brands, and Bretagne-Séché Envinronnement is not a giant among cycling teams, but both are happy to be in the Tour de France for the first time this year. Here, we take a look at the machine of Anthony Delaplace, currently 84th on general classification.
Delaplace is a 24-year-old Frenchman who first rode the Tour in 2011.
Kemo Bikes is even younger. Based in Switzerland, the brand relaunched last year selling bikes consumer-direct. The Team Replica Kemo KE-R8 5KS, built with largely the same as the bike shown here with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 but with Vision Metron 55 wheels and Maxxis rubber, sells for €6,599 (US$8,885 / £5,230).
Check out the gallery above for a close look at Delaplace's set-up, and check out www.kemobikes.com for more on the upstart brand.
