Proven to be a rapid ride so far this year, Chris Froome is now equipped with the super lightweight Pinarello Dogma F10 X-Light for the Vuelta A España. Can it help Team Sky secure a second Grand Tour in 2017?
Dan Lloyd is at the start of the 2017 Vuelta a España to check out Froomey's ride set up for the flatter stages on the final Grand Tour of the season. Pinarello's new carbon lay up gives a more lightweight mode of the F10, now named the X-Light.
With a custom paint job featuring the signature Rhino representing charity Unite For Wildlife, it's unmistakably the bike of Team Sky's lead man Chris Froome.

The first Tour de France winner set a 25.7 km/h average speed, but last year the pro peloton hit 41km/h. How are pro cyclists generating more power than ever before? Si is joined by a special guest to discuss the increasing power outputs recorded in elite cycling. In cycling shorts, we announce our new wheel partner and Campagnolo has a new gravel groupset!
Alex is in Australia and has decided to take on a new gravel race, 'Radl Grvl'. With over 2000m of elevation, this 100km course pushed Alex to his limits. Follow him as he attempts to race AND win the pro category, taking on the monstrous gravel climbs at insane speeds!
Pro cyclists have ridiculous power-to-weight ratios and huge FTP numbers. What would it take for an amateur cyclist to beat a pro rider? Conor tries to beat Giro d'Italia stage winner, Chad Haga, but with one caveat...Haga is 25kg heavier! Will he beat him on a hill climb?
Si doesn't like hi-vis, but why? Is it just the loud colour or is there more fueling this opinion? He talks to a professor in vision science and a psychology professor (also a record-breaking ultra cyclist!), to get their opinion on whether wearing high-vis cycling clothing actually keeps you safe when cycling.
