Mark Cavendish will be riding a custom-painted Willier Triestina Filante SLR for his last ever Tour de France. He'll be swapping Astana Qazaqstan's usual blue marble colourway for a special edition black and marble white paint job, with flashes of gold, along with signature CVNDSH touches. 

During the Giro d'Italia earlier this year, the Astana rider announced his plans to retire at the end of the 2023 season but confirmed plans to ride the Tour.
