Some things are proper cycling heritage. A yellow Colnago ridden by Thomas Voeckler, having a cigarette at the foot of a climb to open the lungs, a French national champion with a jersey devoid of sponsors, and of course a stars-and-stripes Cannondale.

While Quinn Simmons' be-chromed Trek Madone of last year was eye catching, there's something about a Cannondale fully decked out in the motif of Old Glory that just makes sense. Ever conscious of the media landscape, EF Education Easypost waited until the 4th of July to bestow this special race bike to US National Champion Sean Quinn, who will now ride it for the remainder of the Tour de France.
