2017 Team Bikes: Giant Sunweb TCR Team Bikes – Every Rider’s Race Machine?

Team Sunweb’s Giant TCR Advanced SL attracted a huge amount of attention at the Tour Down Under. That may have been partly due to the fact these bikes look much the same as a top of the range TCR you might see down at the local bike shop.

The TCR is a relatively affordable and easliy accessible machine but also one of fine and legendary pedigree. Fully fitted out with a Shimano wheelset, Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain, Pioneer power meters, Giant NeosTrack GPS units and 25mm Vittoria Corsa tubular tyres, the team bikes looked stunning.
