Richard Carapaz (Movistar Team) became the first Ecuadorian to win a Grand Tour by winning the Giro d'Italia on Sunday. The win was also Movistar’s first Grand Tour victory since Nairo Quintana won the Vuelta a España in 2016.

Like Quintana in 2016 - as well as his 2014 Giro victory - Carapaz spent the majority of the race aboard a Canyon Ultimate CF SLX. Towards the latter end of the first Grand Tour of the year, Canyon presented Carapaz with an all-pink frameset, which he used on stage 18 of the race before switching back to his team-issue frameset for stages 19 and 20.

Movistar run Campagnolo groupsets and wheels on their Canyon framesets, with the Italian brand giving Carapaz special pink lever hoods and wheel decals to celebrate his maglia rosa.

LizardSkins, Elite and Fizik also got involved with the pink customisation through the handlebar tape, bottle cages and bidons, and saddle, respectively.
