Last year the brand new Lapierre Aircode helped FDJ riders achieve one of their best ever years, including a podium finish in the Tour de France. This year some FDJ riders will benefit from a specially personalized frame!
Four riders have been specially selected to have individual frames, in a different design to their team mates: Thibaut Pinot, Arnaud Demare, Arthur Vichot, and Jussi Veikkanen. These will be put into action for the first time on the roads of the Grand Prix de Samyn (Veikkanen), Paris Nice (Vichot & Demare), and Tirreno (Thibaut Pinot).
Gilles Lapierre, MD of Cycles Lapierre said “ We are recognizing the successes of some riders by producing special artworks for them. It’s an honour to have these riders help us develop products and riding on them in the world’s greatest races. We in turn are excited to have developed a special look for some of the stars of the FDJ team!”
