In racing terms, the action on any given time trial is perhaps less frenetic than a road stage of the Tour de France. They’re a slow burn with ever-building tension, but for tech nerds who get excited about the most marginal of gains, they are an absolute gold mine awash with shiny nuggets. Race leader Tadej Pogačar’s TT bike is a rich seam in itself, with plenty of mods and some brand-new parts that haven’t been seen before, so let's dive right in, or save it for when there's a lull in proceedings during the stage 7 time trial.

The images herein are gleaned from a UAE Team Emirates tweet, but handily Colnago has also posted a decent gallery of the bike, which we've included below.
