Rumours of the next edition of Shimano Dura-Ace have been growing steadily throughout 2020, the fourth season in the lifecycle of Dura-Ace 9100. However, despite these rumours, Shimano has remained entirely tight-lipped on the new groupset, which is expected to follow the naming structure of its forebears and be called R9200, or perhaps R9250, such is the name given to the Di2 groupset.  

Each Grand Tour since the restart of the curtailed season has sparked suggestions and rumours that pros will be testing the new groupset, but the closest we got was a new, unbranded wheelset ridden by Shimano-sponsored Groupama FDJ and Team Sunweb.
