Richie Porte rode the 2017 Criterium du Dauphine as his final preparations ahead of July's Tour de France. Wearing the leader's jersey for the final two stages before being dethroned by Jakob Fuglsang, Porte will hope he can build on this success and will begin the Grand Tour in Dusseldorf as one of the favourites for the race.

Ahead of the Dauphine, BMC unveiled the latest Teammachine SLR01. The top of the range machine replaces the previous Teammachine that has been raced on for four seasons.

The 172cm tall Australian opts for a small 47cm frame and 170mm cranks.

Porte's bike features a Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 groupset, with direct mount brakes. The crankset is provided by SRM and has Dura-Ace 9000 series chainrings and cranks, but are paired with Dura-Ace 9100 series pedals.

Despite being shot ahead of a relatively flat stage, Porte was running an 11-30T cassette, whilst many of his competitors opted for an 11-28T.

3T provide both the handlebars and the tape, whilst the proprietary stem and seat post are produced by BMC. The red and black design continues with an all black Fizik Arione saddle.
