After disappointment the previous day, Philippe Gilbert (BMC) regrouped for a perfectly timed victory on stage 12 of the Giro d'Italia. It is Gilbert's second win at the Italian Grand Tour, after taking stage success in his last appearance at the 2009 race.

This week Cyclingnews took a closer look at the bike that Gilbert rode to victory on that wet afternoon in Vicenza. Throughout the Giro d’Italia, Gilbert has been using the BMC Team Machine SLR01. "Phil rides a size 54 SLR. It's an all carbon frame and carbon fork," team mechanic Aaron Fairley told Cyclingnews.
