Fabio ARU (Astana)
The Sardinian gave the KEO BLADE CARBON its first victory in this Tour de France by winning stage 5 from Vittel to the Planche de Belles Filles. He doubled the pleasure by pulling the KOM jersey over his shoulders and receiving a special pair of matching Polka-Dot pedals!
Lilian CALMEJANE (Direct Energie)
In his first Tour de France, the Direct Energy rider pulled off a massive win on the stage from Dole to the Station des Rousses. Less than one year after his victory in the Vuelta, he confirms his huge potential.
Romain BARDET (AG2R La Mondiale)
As in 2015 and 2016, Romain Bardet treated himself to the luxury of a stage win in the Tour de France. The leader of Team AG2R LA MONDIALE, raised his arms in victory at the finish of stage 12 from Pau to Peyragudes.
Second last year, Romain Bardet wrote himself into cycling history by earning a new podium with his 3rd place finish.
It’s been twenty years since a Frenchman has achieved two consecutive podiums.
At 26 years of age, the Frenchman, who has ridden with KEO BLADE CARBON pedals since his professional debut in 2012, may not be too far away from victory in the Tour de France general classification.
