Canyon have presented Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) with a custom-painted Canyon Ultimate CF SLX to celebrate the Spaniard's world championship road race victory.

The design celebrates the rainbow jersey, which Valverde will wear for the remainder of this season and into 2019.

Gold trim also runs along the top tube of the Canyon.

Alongside the frameset, special rainbow decals finish the Campagnolo Bora Ultra wheels and Power2Max power meter unit on Valverde's crankset.

Elite have also provided special edition bottle cages, which are white with gold detailing to celebrate the gold medal from the World Championships in Innsbruck.

German bike manufacturer Canyon have been providing framesets to the top tier of cycling since 2007 and say the bike has achieved over 200 victories since their first victory.

Valverde will race the bike during the final Monument of the season during Saturday's Il Lombardia.
