Farewell seasons and even Grand Tours can so often turn into a “will they, won’t they” narrative about whether a rider will ever achieve the unlikely fairytale ending. More often than not those narratives drag on until the last possible moment, with no fairytale forthcoming.

Not so for Romain Bardet; he announced his retirement a matter of days ago and delivered the fairytale stage win – and his first-ever yellow jersey – at the first possible opportunity.

We got a closer look at his Scott Foil RC just as he was getting comfortable in his first yellow jersey.
