Geraint Thomas (Team Ineos) arrives at his 10th Tour de France as defending champion. Unlike last season, Thomas is riding in different team colours after Team Sky became Team Ineos, alongside a new bike in the Pinarello Dogma F12.

The new frameset from the Italian brand was first seen at the Tour de Yorkshire, where Pinarello unveiled the new bike alongside the rebranded British WorldTour squad. The new team image brought with it a change from the team’s iconic blue to a deep red burgundy colour, which also features on the bikes alongside the raw carbon finish.

Thomas’ Pinarello features a Welsh dragon on the head tube cluster, alongside a custom sticker at the head of his top tube, again celebrating his nationality.

Apart from the new frameset, team colours and customisations, Thomas’ Pinarello is equipped with the same finishing kit and drivetrain components as last season’s Tour-winning bike, including a Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series groupset and wheels, Fizik saddle and cockpit system from Pinarello’s component brand Most.

Thomas also continues with the GC rider trend of an 11-30 cassette, in conjunction with traditional 53/39 chainrings and his usual 175mm cranks.
