In this year's Tour de France, the sprinters had to wait patiently until stage 3 for a flat fast finish. The tough Basque stages meant that after stage two, Victor Lafay was in the Maillot Verte, following an emotional first Tour de France stage win in 15 years for Team Cofidis.

Lafay's stint in the green jersey was short-lived though, as Alpecin Deceuninck's Jasper Philipsen stamped his authority on the race with victories on stages three and four. As the race heads into the first of five mountain ranges in the Pyrenees, the Belgian sprinter may need a morale boost. Luckily, Canyon has been quick to provide, offering up a custom green Canyon Aeroad for Philipsen.
