A recap on the 2017 Tour
At the 2017 race, disc brakes made headlines as Cannondale-Drapac's Alberto Bettiol kicked off the Tour with a historic first, which was followed up by Marcel Kittel winning five road stages on his Specialized S-Works Venge Disc.
Among many, many stories, we reported on a then-unreleased Giant Propel Disc, the first iteration of a disc-brake aero bike from the bicycle behemoth, and mused on Mavic’s dropper post-equipped neutral service bikes.
As ever, we’re looking forward to the sneak peeks at next year’s bikes and the weird hacks team mechanics use to make their riders happy.
