Tour de Romandie Prologue: TT tech

With the Spring Classics over and another phase of stage racing having begun with the Tour de Romandie, we take a quick look at some details of the time trial bikes used in yesterday’s prologue courtesy of photos by Graham Watson. There are several new bikes rumoured to be unveiled in the coming months and, from a glance, it seems that AG2R La Mondiale is one team putting new products through the paces in the Swiss race.

There’s a wealth of technical information in the first issue of RIDE Cycling Review for the season with our complete review of pro bikes used in opening round of the WorldTour in January but by July much of that is likely to be superseded. Stay tuned…
