Focus -not providing bikes in this years TdF?

by fred22   July 2, 2012  

As the proud new owner of an Izalco Pro I was waiting to see Katusha ride on focus bikes but to my disappointment they seem to be on Canyon. So is no team using Focus this year on the tour?

Appears not this year, but AG2R have apparently signed to ride them in 2013

I am pleased to see someone else who likes following teams of the same make that they ride! I thought that was just me lol.

Enjoy your new Focus, they seem like nice bikes.

For me I was an HTC fan. The shirt looked right as I ride a Spesh, have a lezyne pump, shimano groupset, HTC phone, etc.

Now with 2 speccy's in my stable it should be out of astana, OPQ or saxo bank.

I am torn though as I like sky as a team. That is why I'd hoped they would change bike supplier.

Out of the Specialized equipped teams I have been impressed with astana this season. Just hope its all legal improvement Wink

I have to say, the new aero BMC is pretty taste, along with the impec.

They pretty much never ride it though Sad
