Colnago has created a special limited edition Thomas Voeckler version of the C59 Italia Team Edition frame decorated with polka dots to celebrate the much-admired French rider’s success in the Tour de France mountain competition.
Just 135 of the very special frames will be produced –the exact points total Voeckler scored in the climber’s competition, and they are decorated with the same iconic red polka-dots as the Tour de France climber’s jersey. The frame is expected to become a real collectors item.
“Thomas is one of the heroes of the Tour de France and so it’s only right we celebrate his success with a special bike,” Ernesto Colnago said.
“We were inspired by the way he won his stages, especially the stage to Bagnères-de-Luchon; that was a real show of Thomas’ panache and character. He also took the polka-dot jersey that day and then kept it all the way to Paris. We’re very proud that he and other other riders at Team Europcar used the new Colnago C59 Italia and M10 S Team Edition bikes.”
Voeckler rode the final stage of the Tour de France on his special polka dot Colnago C59 Italia Team Edition, before climbing onto the final Tour de France podium to be crowned as the best climber’s of the race.
Colnago had a fantastic Tour de France thanks to stage victories by Voeckler and Pierre Rolland. Voeckler won the polka-dot jersey and Rolland finished eight overall and was the best French rider in the overall classification.
The special limited edition Thomas Voeckler Colnago C59 Italia Team Edition frame will be available via our network of official dealers, alongside our full range of bikes.
