Wilier has released images of the bike that Mark Cavendish will be riding at this year’s edition of the Tour de France. The special edition Wilier Filante SLR bike deviates from the standard Astana Qazaqstan Team paint job. Instead bringing a flourish of colour to a bike that Cavendish will surely be hoping crosses the line first on at least one occasion. 

Coming into this year's race Cavendish is on the cusp of doing something that has never been done in the previous 110 editions of the race. Claiming a record-breaking 35th stage win. Cavendish currently sits tied in joint first place on 34 stage wins with arguably the greatest name in the history of the sport; Eddy Merckx. When he lines up at the start in Florence on Saturday there will surely be one thing on Cavendish’s mind.
