BIKE CHECK: Mads Pedersen’s Winning Madone

Big chainrings and some gold bling compliment Pedersen's Tour-winning machine

The seventh-generation Trek Madone landed on Earth recently and our sprinter Mads Pedersen has been showing it off at the Tour de France. Eagle-eyed viewers will notice there’s a chunk of the frame missing – that’s Trek’s all-new Isoflow technology which flexes over bumps, improves aerodynamics, and shaves weight – exactly what Mads asked for in his quest for Tour success. SRAM have added some bling in the drivetrain with a beautiful golden chain and cassette so he looks even better doing it. Full specification below photos.

Mads is normally pushing a huge 56-tooth SRAM chainring (as pictured), but for yesterday's hillier stage opted for a 54-tooth
