This is the bike that Mark Cavendish rode to two sprint wins and into the green jersey in the first week of the Tour de France.

The 36-year-old Manx Missile, who was world champion 10 years ago, won stage four to Fougères, his first win in five years. Then, wearing the green jersey, he won stage six to Châteauroux, to bring him within two stage wins of equalling Eddy Merckx's Tour de France record of 34.

Cavendis  has found a new turn of speed this year - as has the Specialized S-Works Tarmac he's been winning on.
