After stage one surprised us with the first Dutchman to wear yellow in thirty years, Sunday’s team time trial required a complete change of equipment.
EF Education First wore a skinsuit with an upper design that’s exactly the same as our Pro Team Aero Jersey. Designed to save seconds, the jersey – just like the suit – offers an aerodynamic advantage for your fastest days on the bike.
On all but the hottest and most mountainous of stages the team will wear this jersey, because the aerodynamic arms race raging in today’s peloton is no longer limited to just time trials. The team’s main contender for the general classification, Rigoberto Urán, tells us what he likes about the jersey and why this advantage matters:
“I love the design. It’s the most beautiful design in the peloton. We’re super well turned out. The Aero Jersey is my favourite piece, because it fits perfectly and it’s very aerodynamic and efficient. So as well as being comfortable it helps you go a little bit faster.”
