Where can I buy Tom Pidcock’s tires? A video of THE Tour de France descent

Real question: where can I buy Tom Pidcock’s tires? On stage 12 of the Tour de France, with the eruption a few minutes up the road and apparently established, Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) attacked shortly after the field reached the top of the Col du Galibier. In the 17 km that followed, the 22-year-old Briton gave the Tour de France – and in return its millions of viewers – a lesson in bike handling. He also gave his tire sponsor a marketing story to tell in the years to come.

Tom Pidcock appeared on cue near the post, and steered it past the goalie. Shortly after, he shot around the outside of Matis Louvel (Arkea Samsic) and quickly caught Chris Froome, who had attacked about 5km before him. His ability to read the road, hit every tip and use every inch of the road to get free seconds was described by many as fascinating.
