105km solo. That's just one of the small details emblazoned on world champion Annemiek van Vleuten's new Scott Addict RC that honour her status as the world's top rider after her incredible victorious solo attack of that distance in Yorkshire.

The rainbow bands on the fork, top tube and seat tube will easily identify this bike as Van Vleuten's even when she's not on it. Her nickname 'Vleutey' and a rainbow glitter paint job with iridescent Scott logos all make this a supremely flashy bike when viewed close up but come together in a balanced, subtle way when seen from afar.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
