In an article on ITV4 that Chris Boardman did whilst commenting on the TDF, he was riding a black carbon road bike with no decals at all on it and it was unmistakeably a Boardman.
Coincidentally my work colleague was at the Eureka cycle cafe during the TDF, chatting to Chris Boardman's dad who was on the other of the only 2 prototypes made so far.
So i'd say there's a pretty good chance of it being launched soon....
I think he mentioned that the British squad may be using them at the Olympics too..

If you're racing, you're living and everything else is just waiting!

yeah, i noticed that although i wondered at the time if there was some kind of branding clash that meant he wasn't allowed to use a branded bike in the riding pieces.

I believe this was confirmed, possibly by Boardman himself, at some point. He also tweeted more than once that there are new models in the pipeline for 2011.
