Matt Stephens and the Sigma Sport race team are on Specialized bikes for the second season running ? and this year they?re on top-of-the-range Tarmac SL2s.
Also making a UK debut is SRAM?s latest Red groupset which, combined with the SL2, should make for some of the lightest bikes in the bunch.
After a couple of false starts with Quick Step, Specialized has finally got some race-quality wheels, for which the team are gaining some much-needed publicity.
