This bike wasn’t at the TDU but arrived in Majorca for the Trofeo race, requiring some late nights for the mechanics. The 2013 Dogma 65.1 frame from Pinarello and Shimano’s Dura-Ace 9000 in electronic form gets its first outing.

The less eagle-eyed might struggle to tell the difference; the most obvious change is to the battery – no longer external but hidden inside the seat tube.

Minor details differentiate the new Dogma from the old model. What’s key is the upgrade of carbon used – a new, higher grade from Torayca called 65HM, making its debut

for 2013.
