World time trial champion Filippo Ganna will use the all-new Pinarello Bolide F in Copenhagen on Friday when he attempts to take the first yellow jersey of the Tour de France

The bike - which Pinarello claims is its "fastest ever" was tested in competition at the Tour de Suisse, where Dani Martinez and Geraint Thomas proved that it could be as fast as Pinarello claims it is, and it was also used by Ganna to win the Italian time trial national championships.
