There will be all sorts of bikes on display at the Cycle Show but very few with the pedigree of the nearly new Cervelo S3 on the Sigma Sport stand (E22a), it's the bike Thor Hushovd won the Tour de France green jersey on, and it sports a unique one-off black and green colourway as a tribute to that fact.
The green theme doesn't end with the frame's paint job either. It features a whole host of green-themed custom parts including Zipp wheels, Rotor cranks, 3T bar and stem and Speedplay pedals. The whole lot were put to good use by Mr H in these year's Tour when he gave a masterful display of what it takes to win a Tour de France green jersey - his escape on Stage 17 in the Alps to mop up the sprint points was a superb piece of riding.
So If you want to see a bike ridden by a champion, pop along to the Cycle Show between the 9 - 11th of October and take a look

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
