Pro bike: Swiss champion Danilo Wyss’ BMC TeamMachine SLR01

Red paintjob for BMC Racing ace as he rolls out for Tour of Britain

BMC Racing have used their headline sponsors’ flagship TeamMachine SLR01 bike since it launched in 2013 and the red-and-black frame has become a common sight in the peloton.

And while the TeamMachine SLR01 hasn’t changed in that time (though BMC have launched the more affordable SLR02 and SLR03, as well as the aluminium ALR01), anybody watching Swiss champion Danilo Wyss closely at the Tour of Britain will notice subtle differences about his machine.

You see, being the national champion of Switzerland – the home of BMC – has its perks, and Wyss has ridden a stylish red number since taking the title in June. We spotted the bike ahead of stage one of the Tour of Britain in Beaumaris, for which BMC Racing were one of nine WorldTour teams on the start line, and went to take a closer look.

Check out Wyss’ bike in the full-screen gallery below or, for a reminder of how BMC Racing’s bikes normally look, check out Samuel Sanchez’s ride from this year’s Tour de Yorkshire.
