“Bianchi, a brand with a long history in cycling, will become an official licensee of the Tour de France in 2023. A special edition of the Oltre RC used by our riders since the start of the season has been produced for the occasion, combining the celestial green with the yellow of the Tour de France. The 176 special Tour de France models – i.e. the number of competitors taking part in the 110th edition of the Grande Boucle 2023, which starts in Bilbao on Saturday – were assembled by hand in the Bianchi workshops in Bergamo. The Oltre RC ‘Tour de France limited edition’ and the Arkea-Samsic team will be used in two marketing operations: firstly, at the presentation of the Arkea-Samsic team on Thursday 28 June in Bilbao, and secondly during the final stage of the Tour de France 2023, which will finish, as tradition dictates, on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees in Paris.


The number

The special “Tour de France” Oltre RCs will all be numbered and sold after the Tour de France. The same goes for the ones presented in Bilboa, which will be used by the Arkéa-Samsic team for the final stage of the Tour de France.


The OLTRE RC special “Tour de France” bikes are unique, hand-painted and hand-assembled in Bergamo, Italy.
