Pro bike: Alberto Contador’s Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL4

No one can deny Alberto Contador’s (Saxo-Tinkoff) attacking flair during the2013 Tour de France. First he fought Chris Froome (Team Sky) for the yellow jersey and then, in the Alps, tried for a spot on the podium.
The Spaniard eventually finished fourth in the final general classification, slipping down in the rankings in the last few stages after some determined riding by Froome, Nairo Quintana (Movistar) and Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha).
The machine that saw him through the 2013 Tour was a Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL4. Contador rode a custom painted Tarmac SL4 at the start of the Tour, the simple three-colour design drawing on his status as winner of the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a España. Unfortunately, the bike was damaged in a crash on stage 16, and the 30-year-old swapped back to this identical – save for the paintwork – spare for the remainder of the mountain stages.
Contador has already secured one Grand Tour victory on a Specialized – the 2012 Vuelta a España.
