Lance Armstrong (Astana) has revealed his new time trial bikes he will use for the Giro d’Italia.
Shepard Fairey decorated Armstrong’s yellow road bike for the Giro d’Italia. It is decorated with series of ancient patterns that reflect Italian architecture. The bike also includes the number 1274, the number of days between Lance’s last Tour de France win and the day of his comeback.
Armstrong’s time trial bike was decorated by New York artist Kenny Scharf and has a modern ‘lightspeed’ design.
Armstrong will ride the bikes for the first time on Wednesday when he arrives in Venice for the Giro d’Italia.
The 2009 Giro d’Italia starts on Saturday, May 9 and finishes on May 31.
