We caught up with Britain’s Bradley Wiggins before stage one of this year’s Tour de France to check out his Felt DA time trial bike.
Wiggins used the machine to come third in the opening stage against the clock in Monaco. Only stage winner Fabian Cancellara and overall hopeful Alberto Contador went faster than the Garmin-Slipstream man.

Wiggins’ bike will next be used in anger during Tuesday’s stage four team time trial, where Wiggins is hoping to snatch the race lead from Cancellara and get to wear the coveted yellow jersey.
