While Fillipo Ganna is odds-on favourite to win the first yellow jersey of this year’s Tour de France, his Ineos Grenadiers team are leaving nothing to chance. 

The 25-year-old world time trial champion will take to the stage one start ramp in Copenhagen decked out in a custom designed Bioracer time trial suit that the Belgian brand describes as “supersonic”. The new suit will form part of an equipment trifecta that includes a redesigned Pinarello Bolide TT bike and a streamlined Kask helmet. All the Italian has to do is supply the legs.
