Ahead of the start of the 2017 race we take a look at some of the new technology and products Team Sky will be using in the quest to win the team's fifth Tour de France title.
To celebrate signing a new two-year partnership with Ford, the motor company have developed a special version of the new Focus RS Option Pack for the 2017 Tour de France.
They are also prepared to cope with more than 350 kilograms of added weight, including spare bikes and wheels, drink bottles, tools, and even a large coolbox.
Team carers and VIPs use AWD‑equipped Ford S‑MAX sports activity vehicles and Edge sports utility vehicles.
The 2017 Tour de France is the first edition of the race in which Team Sky will be using Today’s Plan - the advanced analytics and training system for Sport Directors, coaches and riders.
