Continental has given the people what they want and released a tan wall, or cream as they call it, version of its best road bike tyres, the top-of-the-range GP5000. Released as a special edition to celebrate the 2020 Tour de France, which has been rescheduled to start on the 29th August, the release would have originally coincided with the second rest day of the race.

The GP5000 TdF LTD 2020 tyre is Continental's first cream sidewall on a classic road tyre and hopefully not the last. The sidewalls are adorned with a special-edition Tour de France stamp and some clean black graphics.
