Vesoul, July 6th. Yesterday Froome and his Dogma F10 latched onto the attack of rival Richie Porte in the final metres and was able to secure a podium and four bonus seconds at top of La Planche des Belles Filles. That was enough to elevate him into the maillot jaune, 12 seconds ahead of team-mate Geraint Thomas.
Düsseldorf, July 1st. The Welshman and his Bolide TT set a winning time of 16 minutes and four seconds on soaking wet roads in Düsseldorf, not only claiming his first ever Grand Tour stage victory, but the maillot jaune to boot.Not only Thomas did perform well, also three of his team mates got in the top 10: Vasil Kiryienka (3rd), Chris Froome (6th) and Michal Kwiatkowski (8th).
Michal Kwiatkowski claimed a stunning victory at Milan-San Remo after winning an epic three-up sprint on the Via Roma. The Pole was able to counter a stinging attack by Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) on the Poggio and descended into San Remo alongside the world champion and Julian Alaphilippe (Quick-Step Floors). The trio went toe-to-toe on the finishing straight, and while Sagan opened out the sprint it was Kwiatkowski who had the strength to edge out the victory in a thrilling finish - taking Team Sky's second Monument victory. Elia Viviani backed up that amazing result taking ninth place in the bunch sprint behind. Read more at https://www.teamsky.com/#1vzfjIBEstfvDtpP.99
Sergio Henao dug deep on the final day to win a thrilling edition of Paris-Nice by just two seconds. The Colombian was pushed hard after a long-range attack from Alberto Contador forced the yellow jersey to chase over the day's final two climbs above Nice. A frantic run back to the finish saw the maillot jaune finish inside an elite group of chasers, 21 seconds back on the Spaniard and eventual stage winner David De La Cruz (Quick-Step Floors).

Geraint Thomas sealed a superb late breakaway victory to win stage two of Tirreno-Adriatico in Pomarance. Thomas with DOGMA F10 broke free of a group containing Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Bob Jungels (Quick-Step Floors) and Damiano Caruso (BMC Racing) with just over one kilometre to go and was able to hold off the chasing pack to record his first win of 2017.

Michal Kwiatkowski claimed Team Sky’s 250th win with a stunning solo victory at Strade Bianche. The team’s fifth victory of 2017 is the 250th in its illustrious history and it was sealed in magical style, as Kwiatkowski dominated in Italy, proving that he’s back to his very best. The 26 year old - who also won the race in 2014 - looked strong from the start and chose the perfect moment to attack on a gruelling wet day in Tuscany, pushing clear of his rivals with 14 kilometres to go. It looked to be a brave move at the time but it paid dividends, as the Pole quickly forged a significant 30-second gap that never closed. Greg van Avermaet (BMC) and Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) battled hard behind but couldn’t get close to Kwiatkowski, and the pair had to settle with second and third respectively in Siena’s famous Piazza del Campo after a spectacular 175km.

YELLOW DREAM: ACCOMPLISHED! (Twelve times ... and 25 meters without our bike). To dream of winning the most important cycling competition in the world takes talent, organization, extraordinary means, and a little luck. We provided the DOGMA F8 Xlight and the BOLIDE TT bikes. Chris Froome and Sky Team did the rest; bringing home his third Tour de France, Team Sky’s fourth and the twelfth for PINARELLO
Eurobike is a very important event for the cycling world. However, in recent years the business strategies of Pinarello have changed radically. For several years now, we have favored direct involvement with our customers. In the coming years We plan to expand on this with the two annual events we host in Treviso and augment it with smaller regional events around the world. We will continue to introduce the coming year's new products in May via a collaborative presentation with Team Sky at the Giro D'Italia. In July the La Pinarello Cycling Marathon will remain as it has for 20 years, three days dedicated to Pinarello with an expo open to all and the opportunity for Pinarello dealers to ride or race the newest Pinarello bike in one of Italy’s premier granfondos. In Autumn our Test Ride Fleets will begin yearlong travels across the globe with the new range of bikes, allowing cyclists around the world to experience the unique ride that only a Pinarello can provide. We also want to recognize and thank Eurobike for the important role it has played in our accomplishments in the market place. We wish them all the best for continued growth and success.
