Tour de France Tech 2014: Peter Sagan’s custom slippers
…or are they special flip flops? Either way marginal gains and all that
Hanging around the team hotels photographing the bikes of the Tour de France you spot many things, but one thing we weren’t expecting to see was Cannondale’s Peter Sagan sporting some personalised footwear.
Yes, we mean his slippers. Cannondale branded across the front with his name stitched in the heel, he looked quite dapper in them, if it's possible to look dapper in a pair of slippers in a hotel car park.
The moment he dismounted his SuperSix Evo after a training ride, he pulled off his Sidi cycling shoes, slipped his slippers on and walked across the car park back to the hotel.
