Swiss bike maker BMC appear to be trialling a new bike at the Giro d'Italia under Cadel Evans which could be unveiled before the Tour de France.

A blacked out and as yet unnamed frame was on show at the first stage of the Giro d’Italia in Naples today.

A second bike will also be on in competition use at the Tour of California, starting later this month under Tejay van Garderen, BikeRadar learned.

A BMC Racing directeur sportif told BikeRadar the frame was extremely light.

On the trial model, the seat tube joins the BB in a broad, flat rectangular profile, which is a sharp departure from the profile on the current range topping Impec.

The frame has internal routing for electronic transmission and the rear gear cable, and the seat clamp has been reversed so that the bolt fastens over the top tube.
