Simon Yates looks to match his twin brother Adam and win the white jersey on the Tour de France this year, becoming just the second Briton to win the prize.

While Yates' Orica-Scott teammate Esteban Chaves usually opts for the aero Scott Foil for his Grand Tour challenges, Yates chooses the lighter Addict frameset.

The bike is paired with a Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 groupset, with the crankset from SRM.

Ahead of the flat stage we photographed the bike on, Yates chose to run 54/42t chainrings but ran the shallow rimmed 24mm Dura-Ace 9100 wheels more associated with climbing stages.

Yates chooses to run a forward-facing Di2 climbing switch on the front of his bars next to the stem. The switch allows the Briton to climb on the tops and switch between gears without changing position from his preferred climbing style.

Simon Yates currently leads the best young rider classification and after surviving today's last mountain stage has all but won the white jersey with three stages remaining.
