Ineos Grenadiers riders have been spotted riding a new lightweight wheelset at the Vuelta A España which started on Saturday. Images of Geraint Thomas and Egan Bernal caught our eye at the stage 3 summit finish which was won by Remco Evenepoel.

We couldn't help but notice the grey hubs on both rider's shallow carbon wheels which didn't appear to be their usual Dura-Ace numbers. After a little research can confirm they are the Tactic Racing TR01 hubs, which retail for a cool £1,000 per pair.
