Off the back of a disappointing Giro d’Italia, by his own high standards, Simon Yates arrived at the Tour de France in support of his twin brother Adam riding the all-new Scott Addict RC Disc.

Like the team’s usual bikes, the new Addict is equipped with a Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series groupset and wheels with Scott’s component brand Syncros providing the majority of the finishing kit. Along with the new framesets from Scott, Syncros launched an all-new integrated cockpit system, optimised for the new frame.

Mitchelton-Scott are also the only team at this year’s Tour to use tyres from Pirelli, who have re-entered cycling with a range of tyres in the past few years.
