Cervélo has released an updated version of its P5 time trial bike. The P5 model has been Cervélo's time trial bike for a number of years and the brand released the news of the new model yesterday, ahead of today's Stage 7 Tour de France time trial stage.

The changes to the new bike's frame are fairly subtle; there's an element of spotting the difference between the new and old bikes but they are clear to see. This is often the case with time trial frames unless they undergo a radical overhaul. Overall the new bike is said to be 5 watts faster than the old one.
