Pinarello F12 is launched and it's looking good.
When Pinarello launch a new bike they do it right. With the Tour De Yorkshire starting as the new Team Ineos is also launched it seemed perfect timing. We were invited to the launch in Doncaster and it did not disappoint. Yorkshire always welcomes cycling events and the crowds were out in force, spirits were high and the worlds best racing cyclists descended on the Northern town of Doncaster.
Before the race started we were introduced to the all new F12 by no other than Fausto Pinarello himself, joining Fausto was Sir David Braislford, Ineos team mechanics and Pinarello head engineer! The bikes looked absolutely amazing and after a first glance you start to notice some major changes from the F10.... Once more of the technical and aero improvements were talked through you soon realise this is a very special machine.
Once we had gone through the new machine Sir David walked us down to the start and the team Ineos bus where we met Chris Froome and the rest of the TDY squad. Riders were called to the stage to be introduced to the crowds and the atmosphere was electric! The whole area was filled with press snapping away and fans trying to get close to the riders. While we were in the Ineos team area it was clear to see the mutual respect between fans and riders, Chris Froome spent lots of time signing peoples mementos and fans were wearing massive smiles throughout.
The riders lined up on the new Pinarello F12 team bikes sporting the new Ineos logo and they all looked very special. Castelli produced the new team kit in the red and black scheme and it looked very smart indeed. Riders introduced, then they lined up on the start just as the heavens opened to give the riders a very wet send off... How would the bike perform? Well everyone was confident that this is the fastest bike ever produced by Pinarello so the riders and team were confident! Results after a few tough days racing round Yorkshire was a team win for Ineos rider Chris Lawless.
