Team Sky’s Pinarello Dogma F8 team bikes have had a cosmetic makeover for 2016, with the addition of blue and white decals on the seattube, seatstays and front fork.
And while the bike essentially remains the same as the machine on which Chris Froome won the 2015 Tour de France – Shimano Dura-Ace groupset and wheels, and PRO cockpit – the new paintjob makes for a very striking new bike.
Having been retained as sponsors, Shimano are understandably keen to shout about it too – and they had one of Team Sky’s bikes on display at iceBike* – Madison’s annual showcase of all the brands they distribute.
The one on display was an exact replica of the bike ridden by former British champion Ian Stannard, who was among Geraint Thomas’ team-mates as the Welshman claimed Volta ao Algarve victory for the second year running this month.
So we swung by to take a closer look at the machine ‘Yogi’ will be riding in 2016 – check it out in the gallery below and stay tuned for more highlights from iceBike*.
