  • Quintana hails team effort as he finishes in second place in the 2015 Tour de France with the help of his Catlike Helmet.

    The 2015 Tour de France finished on Sunday with a 2 - 3 on the podium for Team Movistar as Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde completed the podium behind Froome. 

    Quintana rode into Paris to secure second place and his second white jersey in three seasons just one minute and 12 seconds behind the Team Sky rider.
    That came after a spectacular penultimate stage when he darted up the Alpe d'Huez with less than 10 kilometers remaining. The Colombian looked as strong as he's been throughout this whole Tour, dancing on the pedals as he distanced Froome. 

    Team Movistar use the Catlike Mixino helmet, available from i-ride in a variaty of colours including the Movistar edition. For the team and individual time trials the team use the Rapid, available to buy here.

    Alejandro Valverde kept hold of his third place ahead of last year's winner Vincenzo Nibili (Astana), after four top 10 finishes and a forth place in 2014, it is Valverde's best finish at the French race.

    Movistar also came out on top in the Team classification, finishing off a successful Tour de France for the Spanish Team!

  • World champions BMC Racing won the stage 9 team time trial in the Tour de France, just nudging Team Sky as they battled it out for stage honours and overall race lead in the tough team time trial. The Movistar team came in third, another four seconds behind.


    With the help of 3T components, full range available here, BMC showed why they were the current World TTT champions on Sunday despite having a strong and determined Sky team close behind them.
    Tejay van Garderen looked set to become the first American to wear the yellow jersey in the Tour de France since Floyd Landis, but BMC were not able to gain time over Froome.

    Movistar and Quintana (using Catlike helmets) came out pretty well considering, finishing third behind BMC and Sky at four seconds. Alberto Contador and his Tinkoff-Saxo (using Prologo saddles) finished fourth to lose 28 seconds to BMC and 27 seconds to Sky.

    Bora-Argon 18 finished as the best wildcard team, only 7 seconds to the Top 10. This came after Bartosz Huzarski was awarded most active rider the day before on stage 8, finishing a great week for the Bora Argon 18 team.
