Cycling Weekly took the opportunity to look at Peter Sagan‘s Tour de France machine before the stage four start in Le Touquet.
Cannondale has supplied the current Slovakian champion with a custom-painted SuperSix Evo.
Sagan has swapped from the Hulk of previous years to fellow Marvel superhero Wolverine for this year’s Tour. This X-Men theme is carried over with the top tube airbrushed with glaring eyes and razor-sharp claws.
The flamboyant Slovak is going for his third straight green points jersey title in the Tour.
Sagan takes to the podium in Lille to receive the points leader’s green jersey.
Sagan’s Cannondale SuperSix Evo. SRAM Red mechs and brakes. Vision Metron carbon deep section wheels. An 81mm rear and 55mm front. Kenda SC tubulars. Fizik Alicante saddle. A fan has left a teddy mascot with knitted green jersey on the top tube. The glaring green eyes of the airbrushed artwork of Wolverine on the top tube. The base colour of the frame is a rich gloss black with the Cannondale logo painted in gold with a red outline to the letters on the right side of the down tube and blue outline on the left side to pick up on the Slovakian national colours.
The Slovakian coat of arms features on the FSA stem. SRM computer in green of course.
SRM system on Cannondale’s Hologram SLSL2 crankset. SRAM chainrings 53/39. Green Speedplay Zero pedals.
SRAM have given Sagan’s brake levers the green treatment on the hoods and decals on the levers.

The gold painted Cannondale logo theme runs down the headtube through to the fork.
