Sneak peak at the bike they'll ride in the Tour de France

Team Sky will be on new bikes and kit at this year's Tour de France, which starts on Saturday, 2 July.

Their green theme, called Sky Rainforest Rescue and will be used just for the Tour, stems from a partnership with the World Wildlife Fund to help save a billion trees in Brazil. But as far as the team's Pinarello Dogma 60.1 bikes are concerned, it's more than just a new paint job.

Cyclingnews was at the team launch in Kew Gardens where Sky presented three of their star riders, Bradley Wiggins, Geraint Thomas and Ben Swift, along with their new Pinarello Dogma 2, kitted out with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 electronic shifting and componentry.

Team Sky officials were somewhat secretive of the bike's details - we'll have more of those in due course - but in the meantime, feast your eyes on this lush bit of bike porn and go green with envy. And before you ask, no we weren't able to use Yello's Oh Yeah as the backing track.
