After the explosive stages in the Alps, Cofidis' Simon Geschke is still wearing the polka-dot jersey at the Tour de France

The 36-year-old German, who finished the Alpe d'Huez stage in 85th position (27 minutes down to Tom Pidcock), still leads the KOM classification by four points on Louis Meintjes and seven on Jonas Vingegaard.

de rosa tour de france

Started in 1953 by the draftsman Ugo De Rosa, De Rosa is one of the most well-known and appreciated bike brands in the world. A family-owned and operated company with a passion for artisanal production methods and innovation and a love for beauty and design.  De Rosa continue to build every model by hand - aluminium, steel, titanium and carbon fibre.

For over 60 years De Rosa has pushed the boundaries of road racing technology and sophistication. The company's continuous drive to research, develop, and adopt avant-garde solutions has made De Rosa bicycles one of the premier choices for professional cyclists and bike enthusiasts alike. 

Ugo De Rosa – Master frame builder  

As a young boy Ugo De Rosa developed a passion for bicycle racing and advanced through several ranks at the amateur levels. In technical school he completed studies in mechanics and engineering and became interested in the science of the bicycle itself.  

Ugo De Rosa’s first job was in the workshop of his Uncle where he built and repaired bikes. Ugo opened his first shop and commenced the manufacture of racing bikes in 1953. With his experience in racing, he understood what it took to build a true racing bicycle and his reputation began to spread among the amateur racers in Milan.

De Rosa in the Peleton

In 1958 he was asked by the famous cyclist Raphael Geminiani to build him a bike for the upcoming Giro d’Italia. Following on from this initial interest, De Rosa bikes became a fixture in the professional peloton of the 1960s. 

In 1969, Ugo De Rosa was approached by Gianni Motta, to become his frame builder and mechanic. De Rosa accepted and became the bicycle supplier to Motta and his team. In 1973 De Rosa became the official frame builder and mechanic for Eddy Merckx and the Molteni team. Merckx and his teammates won nearly all the major European races on De Rosa during this time, including the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia, Milan – San Remo and the World Championship. The partnership with Molteni remained in effect until Merckx’s retirement in 1978.

Three generations working in unison

Ugo’s three sons, Danilo, Doriano and Cristiano inherited their father’s passion for the bicycle and became a part of the family business in the late 70s. Danilo and Doraino followed their father’s craftsman footsteps closely. Danilo became responsible for the drawing up and design of all aluminium and carbon bikes, down to the last detail. Doriano’s speciality was titanium. Cristiano took over the commercial side of the business and is now the CEO and public face of De Rosa. Nicholas De Rosa, the oldest son in the third generation of bicycle builders, carries on the De Rosa legacy and tradition. He is recognised as one of the youngest frame builders in the world.

Research, studies & tests

History has taught us that nothing can be left to chance. At our level we cannot allow ourselves to put a foot wrong, De Rosa has an enormous company heritage to safeguard. We must offer our customers quality, safety and the guarantee of maximum reliability. For this reason, before going into production, every frame model is planned thoroughly right down to the finest detail, studying the reactions with special laboratory tests, some of which are performed directly in the factory, others in university facilities. Static and dynamic tests which are followed by countless tests directly on the road, carried out both by experienced professional racers and by amateurs, people with “explosive” legs, valid testers who are able to put a racing bike through its paces like few others can. Production starts only when the results exceed the parameters of resistance, safety and duration.

"Nothing extraordinary is ever born by a formula but by imagining what is not there and do it"  -  Ugo De Rosa

BIKE OF THE WEEK – DEROSA MERAK

de rosa tour de france

As we all know, if there is one country that best defines the essence of cycling passion, it would be Italy. And within  the confines of that beautiful country remain some of the greatest, most historically noteworthy bike brands. DeRosa is one of them.

After starting the brand in 1953, Ugo De Rosa went on to earn a reputation for his precision craftsmanship and artisanal production of high-end racing bikes. Over the last 70 years, the brand has moved on from its origins crafting steel frames and has since moved on to producing a range of carbon racing bikes. Today the 89-year-old’s legacy remains intact as Ugo’s two sons continue to run the company with a catalog full of different models (of which only four imported into America).

de rosa tour de france

DEROSA MERAK

Intended to be a high-end racing bike the DeRosa Merak is focused on weight savings and premium ride characteristics. The monocoque frame uses a blend of various high-modulus carbon fibers to create a light and responsive frame with thicker layers of material around the bottom bracket and head tube to improve strength. Once the frame has been molded and cured in Taiwan it is shipped to Italy where it gets finished and painted by hand at the DeRosa factory in Milan.

Our complete bike hit the scales at a scant 15.75 pounds. Although as built the bike would retail for over $16,000, the frameset sells for $6499. The frame is available in a range of beautiful colors and eight different sizes.

FROM WHENCE THE MERAK CAME

Long before today’s lightweight carbon bikes defined the essence of speed and performance, this 1953 DeRosa epitomized a performance road bike decades ago.

2023 Tour de France bikes — your definitive guide to what the top pro cycling teams are riding this year

2023 Tour de France bikes — your definitive guide to what the top pro cycling teams are riding this year

First Published Jun 28, 2023

Let’s check out the bikes and equipment that the world’s best road cyclists will be riding in the Tour de France.

There are 18 WorldTour men's teams in 2023. All of these will race the Tour de France along with four wildcard teams that have been invited to compete.

Of the WorldTour men's teams, 12 use Shimano groupsets, only one runs Campagnolo and the rest are on SRAM. Perhaps the most unexpected shift (no pun intended) for this season was made by UAE Team Emirates, which dropped Campagnolo as its component sponsor along with other Italian components from its bikes. This might have left quite a few Italians mortified, as the UAE team are now running very Italian Colnago bikes with very much not Italian Shimano groupsets...

In terms of the teams themselves, the men’s WorldTour roster has seen two new teams in 2023: Alpecin-Deceuninck and Arkéa-Samsic. Both Israel-PremierTech and Lotto–Dstny have left the World Tour but they take part in the Tour de France as wildcards alongside TotalEnergies and Uno-X.

Without further ado, let's have a look at the bikes... 

AG2R Citroën Team

2023 BMC Team Machine SLR AG2R Citroen Team

We also spotted a new BMC bike being used by team members at the Criterium du Dauphine, and it's likely to see more action in the Tour de France.

> BMC prototype aero superbike spotted at Dauphine

We can also spot something that has become a rarity in the WorldTour: Campagnolo groupsets and wheels.

2023 Dauphine AG2R Campagnolo Super Record - 1

Yes, AG2R Citroen is the only WorldTour team that is running a Campag groupset in 2023. It'll be interesting to see if all of the riders are on the brand-new version of Super Record.

> Campagnolo ditches iconic thumb shifter and goes wireless with new Super Record Wireless electronic groupset... and it'll cost you £4.5k

The team bikes also feature Italian-quality components, with Pirelli tyres and Fizik saddles.

Alpecin–Deceuninck

2023 Dauphine Canyon Aeroad - 1

Alpecin-Deceuninck were only promoted to the WorldTour level this year, which might come as a surprise given riders like Mathieu van der Poel and Jasper Philipsen are in its line-up. 

2023 Paris Roubaix Mathieu van der Poel © Zac Williams-SWpix.com - 1 (2)

Spec-wise, the team run Shimano’s Dura-Ace Di2 groupset and wheels. The tyres are Vittoria – usually the new Vittoria Corsa Pro – and the team sit on Selle Italia saddles. 

Arkéa–Samsic

2023 Dauphine Arkea Samsic Bianchi Oltre RC - 1

French team Arkéa-Samsic have welcomed Bianchi  as their bike sponsor to replace Canyon, having the Oltre RC, Specialissima and Aquilla TT at their disposal.

2023 Bianchi Oltre RC Arkea Samsic - 1

The bikes come with Shimano groupsets and wheels, except for TTs where the wheels are Vision. The team uses Continental tyres and Selle Italia saddles.

Astana Qazaqstan

2023 Astana Qazaqstan Wilier action - 2.jpeg

Mark Cavendish's Kazakh team is continuing with Wilier Triestina bikes: the Zero SLR and Filante SLR models, equipped with Shimano groupsets and Corima wheels...

2023 Dauphine Wilier Filante HED wheels - 1

...although they've also used wheels from HED, which isn't a sponsor, this year. Those huge blue logos are hardly subtle.

2023 Astana Qazaqstan Wilier action - 1 (1).jpeg

For time trials, the team swaps onto the Wilier Turbine. The fresh “chrome-painted graphite” paintwork of the Wilier frames has impressed art lovers and bike enthusiasts alike. 

Bahrain Victorious

2023 Bahrain Victorious Merida Pearl - 1

Bahrain Victorious are using the same trusted Merida bikes as last year, with the Reacto, Scultura and Warp TT models forming the line-up – but in a Pearl finish especially for the Tour de France. It's a "homage to Bahrain’s rich pearling history", apparently.

2023 Dauphine Bahrain Victorious Merida - 1

Shimano Dura-Ace remains the groupset, the wheels are Vision, the saddles Prologo and finishing kit is handled by FSA.

Bora-Hansgrohe

BORA-HANSGROHE 2023

Even though they’ve been a World team since 2017, it was only last year we saw Bora-Hansgrohe win their first Grand Tour when Jai Hindley smashed the Giro d’Italia  and became the first Aussie to win the Giro. 

2023 Dauphine Bora Hansgrohe Specialized Tarmac SL7 - 1

The German team rides Specialized bikes, the US brand being a key sponsor. Specialized supplies it all: the Tarmac SL7 for the road, Shiv TT for the time trials, Roval wheels and Specialized tyres. Groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, and the saddles and the finishing kit come from both Specialized and Shimano subsidiary PRO. 

2023 Look 795 Blade RS road bike  - 2 (1)

> Look unveils lightened 795 Blade RS road bike and disc brake-equipped 796 Monoblade RS time trial bike

Cofidis has moved from Campagnolo to Shimano this year, which means they had an opportunity to introduce yet another French brand, Corima, as the wheel sponsor. The tyres on those wheels are from Michelin.  

EF Education-Easypost

2023 Dauphine EF Education Cannondale SuperSix Evo - 1

The American team, well known for their bold kit designs, sticks to the same bunch of sponsors as before: Cannondale bikes with Shimano groups, Vision wheels and Prologo saddles.

The riders are on the Cannondale SuperSix Evo (above) which was updated earlier this year.

> Cannondale launches new aero-optimised SuperSix Evo 4 with threaded bottom bracket — all the details + first ride review

2023 Dauphine EF Education Cannondale SystemSix - 1

They also have the SystemSix aero road bike which, launched back in 2018, must surely be the next Cannondale bike to get a refresh.

Groupama-FDJ

2023 Dauphine Lapierre Xelius SL - 1

The French team entering its 28th season is continuing its long-lasting partnership with Lapierre bikes, which come equipped with Shimano groupsets and wheels.

2023 Dauphine Lapierre - 1

In terms of models, the Xelius and Aircode framesets are the go-to options.

Ineos Grenadiers

Ineos Grenadiers Geraint Thomas 2023 Pinarello

Another team with very few changes: Ineos Grenadiers continues to ride the Pinarello Dogma F and the refreshed Bolide TT.

2023 Dauphine Ineos Grenadiers Pinarello Dogma F - 1

The groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and the wheels are usually from Shimano too – although the team has been known to dip into the Lightweight and Princeton ranges in its search for those famous marginal gains. 

The tyres are Continental, the saddles Fizik and the finishing kit is from Pinarello's MOST brand. 

Intermarché–Circus–Wanty

2023 Dauphine Cube Litening C-68X Aero Intermarche - 1

The Belgian team continues to ride Cube bikes equipped with Shimano groupsets, Newmen wheels and Prologo saddles.

Riders can choose either the superlight Cube Litening Air C:68X or the Litening C:68X Aero for lower drag. The Aerium C:68 TT is there for time trials. 

> Cube launches Litening AIR C:68X Series road bikes with a claimed frame weight of 799g

Israel - Premier Tech

2023 Factor Israel Premiertech © Zac WiLLIAMS SWpix.com (t-a Photography Hub Ltd) - 1

Pic © Zac Williams SWpix.com (t-a Photography Hub Ltd)

UCI ProTeam Israel Premier Tech rides bikes from Factor, usually the Ostro VAM (above). However, we know that Factor is releasing a new bike on 10th July 2023, the first Tour de France rest day, which suggests it’s a road race model that’ll play a part in this year’s race. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.

Israel Premier Tech use wheels from Factor’s Black Inc brand fitted with Maxxis tyres.

Although the riders use FSA chainsets, the shifters and derailleurs are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2.

Jayco Alula

2023 Dauphine Giant Propel Groenewegen Jayco - 1

Team BikeExchange-Jayco has had a slight name change to Jayco AluIa but the team’s bikes stay the same with riders on Giant’s Propel Advanced SL, TCR Advanced SL (above) and Trinity TT.

Wheels are from Giant's Cadex brand and Shimano is the main equipment partner. 

Jumbo-Visma

Jumbo-Visma won the Tour de France last year with Jonas Vingegaard and the team roster for this year's race includes huge names like Wout Van Aert and Christophe Laporte, as well as the defending champion.

2023 Dauphine Jumbo Visma Cervelo Vingegaard - 1

Cervelo is still the bike supplier to both the men's and women's teams, although the S5 (above), R5 and P5 models are now equipped with SRAM groupsets instead of Shimano. Vingegaard used a 1x (single chainring) setup for some stages of the Criterium du Dauphine. It'll be interesting to see if he takes the same approach in the Tour.

> Is Vingegaard going 1x for the Tour de France?

Wheels are new too, with the teams riding on Reserve hoops. 

Trek-Road-Camp-Calpe-2022-RB-Web-Res-685

Trek-Segafredo has just changed its name to Lidl-Trek. At the time of writing, it remains to be seen whether the riders will be racing immediately on bikes with updated livery.

The Trek Madone and Emonda road bikes are the usual weapons of choice, with the Speed Concept for time trials. 

SRAM supplies the groupsets while Trek's Bontrager brand provides pretty much everything else.

Lotto–Dstny

Lotto–Dstny use bikes from Ridley, usually the lightweight Helium or the aero Noah. However, we spotted a prototype being ridden by Maxim Van Gils in the Criterium du Dauphine, and it doesn’t look like any bike from the existing range.

2023 Dauphine Ridley prototype - 1 (1)

> New Ridley road bike breaks cover at Critérium du Dauphiné 

We don’t have a name or a launch date yet but it looks like Ridley is combining light weight with aero features – which has been a big trend in the road bike market over the past few years.

2023 Dauphine Ridley prototype - 4

Lotto–Dstny uses Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets, DT Swiss wheels and Vittoria tyres.

Movistar Team

2023 Dauphine Canyon Ultimate Movistar - 1

Movistar continues to ride Canyon bikes – the lightweight Ultimate (above) and the aero-optimised Aeroad (below). 

2023 Dauphine Canyon Aeroad Movistar - 1

The team uses SRAM Red eTap groupsets, Zipp wheels and Fizik saddles. 

Soudal Quick-Step

2023 Specialized Tarmac SL7 Soudal QuickStep Yves Lampaert - 1

After yet another name change (the eighth, if you’re counting), Soudal Quick-Step races the 2023 season with trusty Specialized bikes and Roval wheels, saddles, tyres and finishing kit. Groupsets are still from Shimano.

2023 Dauphine Scott Foil Team DSM - 1

Scott returns to provide the DSM men's and women's teams with bikes, the Foil RC being the popular choice for most stages. 

> Check out our review of the Scott Foil RC Pro 2023

2023 Dauphine Scott Foil - 1

The groupsets are Shimano Dura-Ace Di2, the wheels are Shimano and wrapped on them are Vittoria tyres. Scott’s subsidiary Syncros is providing all of the finishing kit, including the saddles. 

TotalEnergies

2023 Dauphine Specialized Tarmac SL7 TotalEnergies Boasson Hagen - 1

Although it’s a UCI ProTeam rather than a WorldTeam, TotalEnergies boasts riders of the calibre of Edvard Boasson Hagen and Peter Sagan on the Tour de France start list.

2023 Dauphine Specialized Tarmac SL7 TotalEnergies Boasson Hagen - 1 (1)

The team is sponsored by Specialized so uses Tarmac SL7 road bikes and Royal wheels.

2023 Dauphine Specialized Tarmac SL7 TotalEnergies Boasson Hagen - 2

This is yet another team that uses Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupsets.

UAE Team Emirates

2023 Dauphine Colnago V4Rs Trentin - 1

The UAE Team Emirates riders have used the Colnago V4RS road bike this year after Tadej Pogačar raced on the prototype version in 2022.

It's all change regarding the groupset, UAE Team Emirates switching from Campagnolo to Shimano.

Pirelli tyres have been swapped to  Continental , and the wheels are now Enve.

UNO-X Pro Cycling Team

2023 Dauphine Dare - 1

Uno-X has changed little for 2023. Norway's Dare continues to be the bike and finishing kit sponsor – a brand that's little known in the UK. The bikes come equipped with Shimano groupsets and DT Swiss wheels.

They only had an image of the Oltre RC. I am biased, I think the Specialissima looks fine.

That is a lovely looking bike to be fair. Probably their only decent looking tour level bike in the last 10 years though. The aria also looks good, but not tour level.

So Movistar riders, for instance, can pick between the Canyon Aeroad aero bike and the Ultimate all-around race bike. Plus, of course, there are time trial machines in the mix as well.

Tour de France bikes 2023: who’s riding what?

All the bikes and tech on display at the 2023 Tour De France

Jean Catuffe/Getty Images

Paul Norman

The 2023 Tour de France covers 3,404km (2,115 miles) over its 21 stages. That’s 54km more than last year’s Tour.

However, the bigger news is that time trial kilometres are down from two time trials totalling 53km last year (including the Prologue) to just one at 22.4km this year. It finishes at 974m in altitude and has a 2.5km Cat 2 climb to the finish, with an average 9.4 per cent gradient.

For several years, there's been an individual time trial on the penultimate stage, but this year, it’s on the Tuesday of the final week.

Given how a time trial can upset the final result, as in the 2023 Giro d’Italia, or cement it, as in last year’s Tour, it’s a surprising move.

That means the teams’ road bikes are increasingly to the fore. As usual, there’s some very flashy tech on show and we can expect more to be announced in the run-up to the Grand Départ and probably to be unearthed by the sharp-eyed as the race proceeds.

Read on for a complete list of the bikes in this year’s Tour de France, along with the kit they’re fitted with, and our pick of some of the new bikes and tech to keep an eye out for at the 2023 Tour de France .

Also check out our guide to prize money in this year's race, our explainer on leaders jerseys , a comprehensive Tour de France jargon buster and our round-up of how to watch the Tour , wherever you are in the world.

Tour de France 2023 bike brands

The 2023 Tour de France peloton is made up of 22 teams of eight, 176 riders in total. The 18 WorldTour squads receive an automatic invitation to compete, while four second-tier Pro Continental teams get a wildcard invitation. Between them, 19 bike brands are represented.

That’s two up on last year’s Tour, although the majority of brands are the same as in last year’s race. Even Ridley and Factor, who saw their teams demoted to the UCI’s second division, are back this year thanks to wildcard invitations for Lotto-Dstny and Israel-Premier Tech respectively.

New bike brands this year are Bianchi, Look and Dare, while out this year is De Rosa. Specialized continues to sponsor three teams, as in 2022, but Canyon is down from three to two.

Bianchi Oltre RC

Bianchi was absent last year, but is back with Arkéa-Samsic. It had its first race win back in 1899 and its bikes were ridden by Fausto Coppi, Felice Gimondi and Marco Pantani as well as a who’s who of other top-drawer racers, so it’s a prestigious return for the brand. On the other hand, De Rosa is an equally famous name from cycling’s past that has departed the Tour.

Bike brands represented at the 2023 Tour de France:

  • Bianchi : Team Arkéa-Samsic
  • BMC : AG2R Citroën Team
  • Cannondale : EF Education-EasyPost
  • Canyon : Alpecin-Deceuninck, Movistar Team
  • Cervélo : Jumbo-Visma
  • Colnago : UAE Team Emirates
  • Cube : Intermarché-Circus-Wanty
  • Dare : Uno-X Pro Cycling
  • Factor : Israel-Premier Tech
  • Giant : Team Jayco-AlUla
  • Lapierre : Groupama-FDJ
  • Look : Cofidis
  • Merida : Bahrain Victorious
  • Pinarello : Ineos Grenadiers
  • Ridley : Lotto-Dstny
  • Scott : Team DSM-Firmenich
  • Specialized : Bora-Hansgrohe, Soudal-QuickStep, TotalEnergies
  • Trek : Lidl-Trek
  • Wilier Triestina : Astana-Qazaqstan

Read on for more details of each team’s bikes, wheels and other kit.

What’s new in Tour de France tech?

New bike launches.

Colnago V4Rs Dura-Ace Di2

Since last year’s Tour, the Colnago Prototipo ridden to second place by Tadej Pogačar has finally become the Colnago V4Rs and been released for us to review – and anyone with deep enough pockets to buy.

Look Blade 795 RS.

Rather like the Colnago, the new Look 795 Blade RS ridden by Team Cofidis has been in plain sight for months, but was only officially launched earlier in June.

Its profile is similar to many other pro bikes with front-end integration, aero tubes and dropped seatstays, but is a departure from Look’s previous pro-level race bikes.

As per the usual playbook, Look says the new bike is stiffer and more aero.

There are more subtle changes to the Canyon Aeroad . Canyon has yet to announce details, but there are slight changes to the tube profiles and the seatpost clamp has moved from the rear of the seat tube to the top of the top tube.

EF Education Easypost's Cannondale SuperSix Evo Lab71 at Paris-Roubaix 2023

The changes to the Cannondale SuperSix EVO are equally small but significant, with the fourth generation of the bike lighter and more aero – and in LAB71 format significantly more expensive.

Other new bikes bubbling under include an update to the Factor O2 VAM , BMC's new aero road bike and a new Ridley bike , also aero.

One thing all these bikes have in common is there's not a cable or brake hose in sight. In part, that's down to all the groupsets ridden now having wireless connections between the shifters and the derailleurs.

It's also due to the brake hoses running exclusively internally. Since they're invariably hydraulic, there's no loss of braking efficiency, however sharp the bends and no matter how convoluted the routing becomes.

Tubeless wheels and tyres have mostly taken over

Almost all teams are now running tubeless tyres in place of the pros’ favourite tubulars. There are good reasons for this beyond the lack of potentially carcinogenic and addictive solvents in the tub cement (more of an issue for the team mechanics than the riders).

Matej Mohorič of Bahrain Victorious has claimed tubeless tech can lower rolling resistance by up to 15 watts per tyre. Paired with the latest aero wheel designs, that’s a huge margin.

You’re also less likely to need a wheel swap at a crucial point in the race, with sealant helping to cope with punctures, although unlike tubs you can’t ride a flat tyre to the finish or while waiting for the team car to give you a wheel swap.

28mm tyres are also increasingly taking over from 25mm, even on the smooth tarmac generally enjoyed on the Tour. Riders often sub in time trial tyres for road tyres, due to their lighter weight, although they in general offer less puncture protection than the best road bike tyres .

WilierCVNDSH-0031_1024x768

One team that has remained on tubs is Astana-Qazaqstan, although it’s in the process of swapping from Corima wheels that don’t offer a tubeless rim, to HED which does.

Component choices

As in previous years, Shimano dominates the teams’ drivetrain choices, with just three teams on SRAM (Jumbo-Visma, Movistar, Lidl-Trek) and one (AG2R-Citroën) on Campagnolo – one down on 2022 with the defection of UAE Team Emirates to Shimano at the beginning of 2023.

There's more on Campagnolo Super Record below, but an unlaunched update to SRAM Red AXS has been spotted. With SRAM focusing on the launch of its updated Force AXS groupset earlier in 2023, it seems likely that a new version of Red AXS will be announced sooner rather than later.

We've seen an increasing acceptance of single chainrings in races earlier in the season, such as Paris-Roubaix , and that may extend to flatter stages in the Tour, when the small chainring is little used.

Expect 2x setups to take over in the mountains again though, yet even there Primož Roglič showed that a single ring with a wide-range cassette was a winning option.

There’s more variation in wheels than drivetrains, with the aforementioned Corima and HED, as well as Reserve, Vision, DT Swiss, Roval, Newmen, Black Inc, ENVE, Bontrager, Zipp and Cadex all represented.

Campagnolo goes wireless

Super Record Wireless

Campagnolo is providing its Super Record groupset to just one team this year, AG2R Citroën. However, it has dispensed with wires, with the recent launch of the new Super Record Wireless groupset.

As with SRAM Red AXS , the consumer version of Super Record Wireless uses smaller chainrings paired to cassettes starting with a 10-tooth sprocket and rising to just 29 teeth as the largest sprocket option. However, the pros are likely to stick to closer ratios for all but the toughest stages.

There are a couple of interesting things to watch out for here: first, are all the riders using the latest Wireless groupset?

When Shimano Dura-Ace went 12-speed last year, there were still teams using the older 11-speed Dura-Ace long after the official launch, due in large part to the new groupset’s scarcity.

Will Campagnolo have got its manufacturing and distribution ducks in a row better than Shimano?

Wout van Aert's Cervelo Soloist at Paris-Roubaix 2023

Second, with SRAM Red AXS, there are a series of chainring options designed specifically for the pros, which are larger than the chainrings on the complete cranksets available for consumer purchase.

That’s partly because pros like to push larger gears at their elevated riding speeds (winner Jonas Vingegaard averaged over 42kph throughout the entire Tour last year).

It’s also because the chainline and the degree of curvature of the chain as it passes over the jockey wheels and cassette make small, but significant, differences in drivetrain friction. Therefore, riding in a larger sprocket nearer the middle of the cassette is an easy marginal gain. It’s also the reason why OSPW systems are used by the pros.

Will we see AG2R Citroën riders using larger chainrings, perhaps borrowed from the previous generation of Super Record, with Campagnolo Super Record Wireless at the Tour?

Tour de France 2023 bikes

All 18 WorldTour teams ride the Tour de France and every one of them gets the pick of the best bikes from their sponsors’ ranges. That includes all teams using 12-speed wireless/semi-wireless electronic groupsets on their road bikes and a choice of top-spec carbon wheels.

The invited Pro Continental teams (Israel-Premier Tech, Lotto-Dstny, TotalEnergies, Uno X) too are on top-spec bikes and equipment – there’s no second best here.

De Rose Bikes

De Rosa Bikes

The history of de rosa.

Ugo De Rosa was born on the 27th of January 1934 in Milan, Italy. He attended primary school, middle school and a technical school where he followed a mechanical and engineering curriculum. He developed a passion for bicycle racing as a young boy, a passion that remains with him to this day. It first led him to take up the sport of racing in which he advanced through several ranks at the amateur level. But he also became very interested in the science of the bicycle itself, and this proved to be the area where DeRosa would make his mark on the cycling world.

His first job was in the workshop of an uncle where he repaired and assembled bicycles. In the early fifties, Ugo De Rosa then went on to open his first shop in 1953 and dedicated himself to the manufacture of racing bicycles. With his experience in racing, he understood what it took to build a true racing bicycle and his reputation began to spread among the amateur racers in Milan.

"Nothing extraordinary is ever born by a formula but by imagining what is not there and do it" - Ugo De Rosa

De rosa's rise to the professional peloton.

By 1958 the word of De Rosa's frames had reached the professional peloton. While attending a race at the Vigorelli velodrome in Milan De Rosa was approached by a famous cyclist of the day, Raphael Geminiani . He asked De Rosa to build him a bike for the upcoming Giro d'Italia. De Rosa responded immediately to Geminiani's request, for he knew that making this champion's bikes would certify his craftsmanship and launch him into the world of professional cycling.

Following on from this success the sixties saw De Rosa bikes become a fixture in the professional peloton. The powerful Faema squad was the first team to ride De Rosas to the forefront with great champions like Soler and Suarez of Spain. Along with Belgian Rik van Loy they won a majority of the races they entered. Other De Rosa teams of the decade included Tbac (1964) and Max Majer (1967).

In 1969 De Rosa was approached by Gianni Motta , a great champion of that era who had admired the bicycles of the Max Majer team. Motta wanted to engage De Rosa as his frame builder and mechanic, De Rosa accepted and became the bicycle supplier to Motta's powerful Sanson team as well. It was also during this period that one of the greatest stars of cycling was rising, Eddy Merckx . De Rosa built some frames for Merckx around this time, but it was not until 1973 that their now-famous relationship was established.

De Rosa and Merckx

Merckx asked Ugo to become the official frame builder and mechanic for the Molteni team captained by Merckx. The results were unprecedented as Merckx and his teammates won nearly all the major races including the Tour de France , the Giro d'Italia , Milano-San Remo and the World Championship . This partnership remained in effect until Merckx's retirement in 1978. In 1981 Eddy again called upon his former frame builder to be a technical consultant when he first set up his own bicycle manufacturing facility.

De Rosa's talents were now in great demand by the mid-seventies and in 1974 another great racer came to him, Francesco Moser . Moser wanted De Rosa bicycles for his Filotex team. De Rosa agreed and the results were rewarding for both parties with Moser going on to win the World Championship .

The Passing of the Torch

So as the seventies came to a close Ugo De Rosa had gone from the humble beginnings in his uncle's repair shop to becoming the frame builder of two World Champions. His sons Danilo, Doriano, and Cristiano were starting to come of age and showing great interest in the family business. The timing could not have been better as the demand for De Rosa bicycles skyrocketed in the eighties as De Rosa had entered new markets for the first time including the United States, Russia, Japan, Belgium, and Germany.

In 1982 he sponsored the Sammontana team led by Moreno Argentin and Giovanbattista Baronchelli. From 1985 to 1989 De Rosa worked with the Ariostea team which grew from a small start-up team to one of the dominant squads in the peloton by the end of the decade. The end of the eighties also saw De Rosa outgrow the small workshop adjacent to his home where all his frames had been made, and he moved to a larger space in Cusano Milanino and assigned his sons' definite responsibilities. Danilo and Doriano followed directly in their father's footsteps and started to work beside him building frames while Cristiano took over the commercial side of the business.

In 1990 Ugo De Rosa embarked on a new project to build bicycle frames from titanium tubes that would stand up to the rigors of professional racing and have the ride quality of a DeRosa. Ugo spent over three years in the research and development phase of this project. In 1994 the final results were delivered to the Gewiss-Ballan team in the form of the De Rosa Titanio.

Bike Check: Haas's De Rosa Italian Special

A pillar of Italian bicycles, Ugo De Rosa, died near Milan at the age of 89 today. He began De Rosa bicycles and provided the means for Eddy Merckx, Francesco Moser, Moreno Argentin to race to some of their biggest wins.

De Rosa, along with Italy's historic brands Colnago, Pinarello and Bianchi, shaped cycling's landscape from the post-war years through the new millennium. His bikes won the Giro d'Italia, the World Championships and broke the hour record.

"I'm convinced that if you make quality bikes, you are honest, then they'll award you," De Rosa said in a 2014 interview at his factory near Milan.

"If you are a pretender, they'll ignore you. After time, people figure you out."

He was born January 27, 1934.

De Rosa left his heart, just as the famous badge on each frame, in the factory in Cusano Milanino. He moved there from his home just south in Milan to be with his wife and began his empire.

ウーゴ・デローザ氏の訃報が届きました。レーシングサイクル製作に人生を捧げたイタリア自転車界の巨匠。最期まで工房に立ち続けたマエストロよ安らかに。R.I.P, Ciao❤️ Ugo DeRosa pic.twitter.com/E1iIh4Bp5a — Makoto AYANO 綾野 真 (@makotoayano) March 26, 2023

It took off when French cyclist Raphael Geminiani asked him to work as a mechanic for his Giro d'Italia team. That 1958 Saint-Raphael-Geminiani team also went on to race in the Tour de France, where Geminiani placed third. The jet booster kicked in when Merckx knocked on De Rosa's door and asked him to build bikes for his 1973 Molteni team.

De Rosa made 52 bikes a year alone for Merckx. With a welding torch in his hand and a cigarette in his mouth, he crafted all the frames that came out the door. The days were long and he would often sleep with the dog among the tires instead of returning home to his bed.

The 1980s and 1990s brought him more success. He said, "I was busy in those years. It was a double-satisfaction, money and recognition."

Carbon became king, ruling the factory floors that steel tubes once dominated. De Rosa still rolled out nearly 10,000 bikes in recent years and supplied teams and cyclists down the road to their dreams.

In the last few years, Italian team Nippo-Vini Fantini and the top French squad Cofidis raced with De Rosa bikes with their heart badges.

His three sons Danilo, Doriano and Cristiano now keep that De Rosa heart alive.

"I wouldn't change anything," De Rosa said. "For sure, I've made some mistakes but the good has outweighed the bad."

De Rosa Heritage

As one of the oldest brands in cycling, De Rosa certainly know a thing or two about how to craft the perfect bikes.

Now one of the most prestigious names in cycling De Rosa bikes was initially only a small one-man operation. The company was founded in 1953 by Italian bicycle builder Ugo De Rosa. De Rosa started out as a passionate cyclist with a love for racing and innovation. Soon Ugo began to study engineering with the goal of building his own bikes.

de rosa tour de france

Before long the Italian frame builder had built up a name for himself and was approached by legendary Italian champion Raphaël Géminiani to build him a bike for the upcoming 1958 Giro d’Italia. Following this initial exposure, De Rosa bikes soon became a familiar sight in the pro-peloton throughout the 1950’s and 60’s. By 1967 pro teams Faema, Tbac and Max Majer all used De Rosa’s frames.

In 1969 Ugo De Rosa was approached by Gianni Motta to be the chief frame builder and mechanic for his team. It was during the ‘69 season that one of the greatest riders of all time – Eddy Merckx – was establishing his dominance on the sport. De Rosa began making some frames for Merckx and by 1973 Merckx’s legendary Molteni team were kitted out with De Rosa bikes. Merckx and De Rosa’s partnership saw huge success winning the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Milan San Remo, World Championships, Paris Roubaix, Tour of Flanders, Liege – Bastogne – Liege as well as numerous other races. When Merckx eventually retired and started his own bike company Ugo worked as an advisor.

Over the next few years De Rosa bikes would be used by several big-name riders including Francesco Moser, Moreno Argentin and Giovanbattista Baronchelli.

Throughout the 1980’s De Rosa bikes would see a huge increase in demand overseas including in the USA and Japan. Soon Ugo’s company would outgrow their small workshop - attached to the side of the Italians house - and would move to Milan, where the business can still be found today.

These days De Rosa bikes are as popular as ever all over the world. With the flagship SK and Protos models featuring in many of the top-level professional races, Ugo De Rosa’s company is showing no signs of slowing down.

Tour De France Bike Weight: The Complete Guide

I’ve been a massive Tour de France fan ever since I was a kid. Recently, I’ve been investigating the types of bikes they use for this race. How heavy are Tour de France bikes?

The Tour de France bike weight has a minimum limit of 6.8kg, with no upper threshold. The maximum weight of these bikes can go up to 8-9 kg, and even closer to 10kg in some cases.

Tour de France bikes are built to be reasonably lightweight, streamlined, and built for speed.

In this guide, I’ll cover everything you want to know about the required bike specifications, and also the most popular Tour de France bikes and their weights that are being used today.

Tour de France Bike Weight

In 2021, all bikes used in the Tour de France were made from carbon fiber. This includes their frames, wheels, and a majority of their components, like handlebars and seat posts. 

This helps keep the bikes below the minimum weight limit of 6.8kg imposed by the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale).

Factors such as aerodynamics, rolling resistance, friction, and weight play a crucial role in the speed of a bike. Therefore, they want their bikes as light as possible as lower weights imply faster and more agile cycling.

UCI introduced the minimum weight limit rule in 2000.

They did it to ensure that manufacturers didn’t risk the safety of cyclists for the lightest bike possible. Though there have been debates over it throughout the years, UCI remains steadfast over this limit. 

However, according to the rule book, there is no upper limit for the weight of a Tour de France bike. But, it wouldn’t be of much help even if there was, as stated earlier, heavier bikes are slower. Kind of a no-brainer, right?

Lighter bikes are preferred as they have the advantage of quicker accelerations and being easier to handle.

This way, teams can get their bikes down to the 6.8kg limit while offering leniency of about 100 grams or so for variations between their scales and the UCI’s. 

Furthermore, accomplishing this task was made harder due to the disc braking systems and the introduction of aerodynamic tube shapes. These features have yielded slightly heavier and more robust frames. However, the weight of these bikes only varies from 6.8kg to around 7.2kg. 

Similarly, time trials bikes have deep tube shapes, rear disc wheels, and deep-section front wheels. It is common for them to be relatively bulky at around 8-9kg, with the heaviest bikes topping out at 10kg.

The Tour de France is renowned for its developments, both in technology and also sports science. (Source)

The heftier bikes peak at around 8kg. Therefore, they use these bikes as aero bikes on flatter tracks. Since there are no slopes, weight is not much of an issue.

Due to this minimum weight limit, manufacturers don’t try to create dangerously light bikes. Instead, they try to focus on other areas of improvement. As a result, various debates have sparked between manufacturers, such as rims vs. disc brakes, inner tubes vs. tubeless tires, and more.

Rim Brakes vs Disc Brakes

Arguably, the most crucial part of a bike is its brakes . A common debate has spun up over the years as to which brake is the most ideal.

Disc brakes are well-known for mountain biking.

But, in recent years, they have become favored for road biking as well. At the start of the 2021 season, practically all of the top teams except for one used disc brakes. 

Many teams feel committed to the technology of these brakes, leaving only a few teams still in favor of rim brakes.

Teams like Ineous Grenadiers, who are the sole representatives of the #savetherimbrake movement, have attempted to change this. However, the reality is that disc brakes are slowly taking over. 

Though many riders have voiced their opinions on this matter, it is still highly likely that the whole peloton will soon stop using rim brakes.

Tubular VS. Clincher VS. Tubeless

Advancements in tires technology became mainstream during last year’s delayed Tour de France. During this time, specialized sponsored teams Deceuninck-QuickStep and Bora Hansgrohe surprisingly chose clincher tires fitted with inner tubes for their bikes. 

Over the years, tubular tires have been every manufacturer’s go-to choice. That is because manufacturers glue tubular tires to the rim, which means that they stay on the bike even when it punctures. Ideally, this would allow the rider to continue riding until the wheel or the bike changes.

However, as time passed, tubeless tires adapted to the changes and have experienced an increase in popularity. Using tubeless tires implies that riders don’t have to stop in case of a puncture.

They can automatically repair any punctures, leaving the inner tube to last a long time.

Though Deceuninck-QuickStep and their wheel sponsor Roval may have deemed clincher tires as the best option, when considering tires technology, rim design, and interface, it is understandably not a widely accepted opinion. 

The future of tires technology is uncertain, and no one knows for sure which tires the competitors prefer in the upcoming race.

The New Bikes at the Tour de France

Being the biggest bike race in the world, the Tour de France serves as a global veritable shop window for cycling brands and team sponsors. As an added benefit, racing would also serve as a testbed for the durability of new tech tested by these brands. 

Resultantly, I’ll help keep a detailed review of the new models, technology, or prototype bikes from each brand to ensure you’re up-to-date with the latest news. 

New Dura-Ace

An example of a new technological piece released is the new Dura-Ace groupset by Shimano.

The people expect it to be called Dura-Ace R9200, and the groupset was spotted on bikes of the Team DSM’s riders at Baloise Belgium Tour. I predict it to be widely adopted soon at the Tour de France. 

As stated earlier, since renowned manufacturers use the Tour de France as a shop window for potential buyers, the best new releases would be the bikes. Just last year, two brands, Factor and Canyon, used the race to test their respective early bike releases, and people expect it to be no different this year. 

Upon a glance, the most anticipated bike is the new Pinarello Dogma.

We expect the Pinarello-sponsored Ineos Grenadiers to ride the Pinarello. But, there are plenty of other models to be released. For example, we spotted the new Factory Slick in the Giro d’Italia and the new Trek Speed Concept at the Criterium du Dauphine. 

In addition to the summer blossoming a whole array of new bikes, there have also been announcements for new wheel launches. Carbon wheels help to lighten bikes significantly and add strength and stability.

Every Change Taylor Swift Made to ‘The Eras Tour’ in 2024: Song Cuts, ‘TTPD’ and More

Feature Every Change Taylor Swift Has Made to The Eras Tour for the European Leg

Taylor Swift is giving her Eras Tour a fresh update as she hits the road again for the next leg.

Swift took the stage in Paris on May 9 after a two-month hiatus. During her first show of the European leg, fans were quick to notice the changes Swift made to the show from costume changes to edits to her extensive setlist. When talking to the audience, Swift teased she had a lot in store for her fans that evening.

“It makes us want to give you all sorts of surprises!” she hinted.

Since Swift last hit the road, she dropped her 11th album The Tortured Poet’s Department . Ahead of the Paris show, Swift’s French tour promoter, Arnaud Meersseman , confirmed that the singer was adding some TTPD songs to the show.

“She’s going to include new pieces from her new album,” he said in an interview with Radio France on Thursday, May 9.

Keep scrolling to see what changes Swift has made to the Eras Tour so far:

Every Change Taylor Swift Has Made to The Eras Tour for the European Leg 2

A New Intro

Before Swift takes the stage for each show, she plays her famous intro that includes a mention of all her albums and eras. Swift updated the mix to include a reference to TTPD . The backdrop now also includes  TTPD  alongside her previous work.

With new songs coming into the three-hour set, it was inevitable that fans would have to say goodbye to some tracks. “The Archer” and “Long Live” were the first ones to get the ax. Swift also cut “The 1,” “Tolerate It,” “The Last Great American Dynasty” and “Tis the Damn Season.”

Every Change Taylor Swift Has Made to The Eras Tour for the European Leg 4

To keep Swifties on their toes, Swift mixed up the order of her setlist. In the original leg after Fearless , she transitioned into Evermore . Swift moved Red into Evermore’s original spot and later combined Folklore and Evermore into one era.

“On The Eras Tour we have now reunited the sisters!” she said of the two records she dropped in 2020. “You can call it Folklore , Evermore or you can call it the sister albums!”

After Red , Swift goes into her Speak Now era, which includes a new transition featuring floral images on the screen and her dancers performing a new routine before she sings “Enchanted.”

New Outfits

Swift also took a second to update her show with a brand-new wardrobe to mark the occasion. She rocked a new Lover bodysuit, Fearless dress and “Enchanted” gown. During the Red set, Swift also donned a new T-shirt that read, “This Is Not Taylor’s Version.” On the second night, the shirt read, “I Bet You Think About Me,” which is one of the vault tracks from Red (Taylor’s Version). “When it was time for her Folklore era, Swift also brought out a new dreamy yellow dress (on night 2 it was pink).

One look remained the same: her iconic Reputation bodysuit. ( Reputation and her self-titled debut are the two albums Swift has not rerecord yet, perhaps that’s why she didn’t update the look yet.)

For 1989 , Swift introduced a new blue-and-pink sequined outfit that featured a miniskirt and crop top reminiscent of her outfits from The 1989 World Tour . (On night 2 in Paris, she wore the same look in a different color.) The surprise songs section featured as a new dress as well. She also dazzled in a new sparkly Midnights bodysuit which featured a halter top and side cutouts.

‘TTPD’ Era

Following her 1989 era, Swift performed several songs from the TTPD anthology and wore a white gown. The set included “But Daddy I Love Him,” “So High School,” “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?,” “Down Bad,” “Fortnight,” “The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived” and “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart.” The Paris audience also got “loml” as one of their surprise songs.

During the performance, Swift is abducted by aliens and levitates on a moving platform. After “Fortnight,” Swift removed her gown and wore a sequined black set and gold jacket. On night 2, the black set was replaced with a white two-piece and matching jacket.

US singer and songwriter Taylor Alison Swift, also known as Taylor Swift performs on stage at the ... [+] Paris La Defense Arena as part of her The Eras Tour, in Nanterre, north-western France, on May 9, 2024.

Taylor Swift thrilled fans with the addition of performances from her latest album The Tortured Poets Department when she kicked off the European leg of The Eras Tour in Paris on Thursday, May 9, 2024. She jokingly called that section of the show Female Rage: The Musical . Most concertgoers already knew and sang along to every word of all the songs she sang from the album even though it was released just a few weeks earlier on April 19. Such is the power of Swift.

In her long career of riveting live shows, her stunning performance of “Who’s Afraid of Little Old Me?” may very well be her masterpiece so far. Swift is enjoying unprecedented success with her latest albums and tour, which showcase how she can tell a story like no other artist. Both her singing voice and her literary voice are stronger than ever, and it’s joyful to watch Swift embody and embrace her mightiness as a performer.

It's no wonder many fans are willing to travel hundreds or even thousands of miles for the chance to see Taylor Swift perform live. Since tickets sold out so quickly for the few remaining U.S. tour dates and resellers are aware of the intense demand, some fans discovered it was more doable to attend one of her international shows.

So, many fans in the U.S. and other countries have decided to make a vacation out of going to The Eras Tour in Europe this summer. If you are among them, here’s some advice on how to make the most of your international adventure.

Consider Your Lodging and Transportation Choices First

Before buying a ticket, be sure that you will have accommodations available. If you can book a hotel that’s within walking distance of a stadium and know the area is safe, that is ideal. Otherwise, check bus and train schedules for the night of your venue, then look at hotels that might be close to bus or train stops.

With tens of thousands of fellow concertgoers leaving at the same time, transportation can get tricky. If you book a room that’s farther from the venue, try to get a rental car instead of vying for a taxi or rideshare after the show. If you do that, just be sure parking will be available. You may need to buy a parking pass from the venue.

Also be aware that hotel room prices skyrocket when Swift is in town because there is such a high demand. If you are renting a car and don’t mind a longer drive, you can save a lot of money by booking a hotel room that’s a longer drive from the venue.

Enjoy The Moment

Amy Wilkinson, a 49-year-old Swiftie from Tucson, AZ, went viral in December 2023 for her reenactments of The Eras Tour performances using Elf on the Shelf dolls. She posted them to her Instagram, @Tswizzle_Momma , and found thousands of people watching each time she posted her videos. Like many other Swifties in the US, she is flying to Europe for The Eras Tour.

Wilkinson told me she had this advice for fellow fans going to the show abroad, “Enjoy the entire experience, from the moment you get on the plane until the morning after. You may be going for the concert, but the memories are made in the details. See the sights. Enjoy the food. Meet other Swifties. This is at the heart of what international travel is about.”

Make The Friendship Bracelets

Rebecca Bartley, a Swiftie from Nova Scotia, Canada, is going to Sweden to see The Eras Tour. She advises bringing friendship bracelets to share with fellow concertgoers on the night of your show. Wilkinson suggested making friendship bracelets in the language of the country where you’ll be seeing the show.

It’s easy to learn how to make friendship bracelets. I had never dabbled in making jewelry before, but now I find great joy in creating friendship bracelets. I created dozens and handed them to fans at The Eras Tour movie.

To make friendship bracelets, I start by choosing the colors I want and which word or phrase I want the bracelet to express. Then I choose colorful beads and pick out all the necessary letter beads.

Next, I cut off elastic string. I find it’s best to use Stretch Magic elastic string because of its strength and durability. To make the bracelets, I cut off a piece of string that’s twice as long as I need so that there is ample room for cutting and tying multiple knots.

Then I tape one end of the string to my workspace, string the beads I have set aside until I feel like the bracelet is complete. Being careful to not let any of the beads slide off the string, I then wrap it around my wrist to see how it fits and then consider whether I am making the bracelet for a wrist that’s likely larger or smaller than mine. (Also, with elastic string, there’s room for a flexible fit.) I adjust accordingly.

As a last step, I make four to five knots in the string to tie off the bracelet. Many fans choose to add a dab of fabric glue to the end of the knot, but I found that got really messy and wasn’t necessary if you make multiple knots. Then I tuck the knots into one of the beads so that it doesn’t show on the bracelet. Then the bracelet is concert-ready!

Keep in mind that there are a lot of other ways to make friendship bracelets that are for more involved and creative that mine. And, if the idea of making friendship bracelets doesn’t sound fun to you, don’t worry. You can buy premade friendship bracelets on Etsy. Some Etsy shops like RainFoxx13 and BonniesBracelet have elaborate, beautiful friendship bracelets that you may want to keep for yourself. Others sell packs of friendship bracelets in bulk.

If you don’t want to trade friendship bracelets, that’s okay, too. The Swiftie community is accepting and supportive, and you still may get several bracelets as gifts.

What To Wear To The Eras Tour

There are no rules for what you should wear to Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour beyond the guidelines from the venue. Some fans go casual, and others choose to dress to the nines for the show. Some fans choose to wear merch from Taylor Swift’s official store . Many fans choose to dress up in costumes inspired by Swift’s songs and lyrics.

With the release of The Tortured Poets Department and its video “Fortnight,” some fans are choosing to imitate some of her looks from the video. Others are wearing their interpretation of the incredible costumes she wears during The Eras Tour concert. Others look at past eras for inspiration. You are likely to see every era represented in fan costumes at a show.

What You Should Bring To The Eras Tour In Europe

Wilkinson advised me that the number one thing to bring is a portable phone charger. If you plan on recording video and taking photos, your phone’s battery may die down quickly, and a phone charger can ensure you can keep capturing the memories all night.

Earplugs are a good idea if you’re sensitive to loud noise. If you’re bringing kids along, they are a must. They ensure you can enjoy the music while protecting your ears.

Bring along a cardigan or jacket. Layering is a good idea for a concert during the summer. Although it may be hot in the stadium, you might be chilly on the way home from the show.

You can’t go wrong bringing along hand sanitizer and a travel pack of tissues. Even if you can get through “All Too Well” without tearing up, you may cry at the sheer excitement of the experience. It can be intense in the best way.

If you have tickets that are far back, bring along binoculars to see close-up details.

What To Avoid At The Eras Tour

Don’t come to the stadium with a big bag. If you haven’t attended stadium concerts before, you may not know that you need to carry a clear bag if you want to bring a purse. It also has to fit within the measurements allowed in the stadium, so you can’t just buy a clear backpack and expect to get in the show. Check with your show’s venue to make sure you follow their rules for what you can bring.

How To Get Taylor Swift Tickets In 2024

Tickets have already gone on sale for the rest of the currently confirmed dates of The Eras Tour for 2024. However, you can get secondhand tickets from resellers. It’s usually not a good idea to buy from individuals in Facebook groups offering to sell tickets. That’s hard to verify, and many are scammed that way. Instead, check with the individual venue to see how their resell process works. It varies throughout Europe depending on the country and the individual stadium.

Tour de Hongrie: Thibau Nys grabs glory on final climb for stage 3 win and GC lead

Ulissi pushes to second, Buchmann fades to third on queen stage

SALVANLES MARECOTTES SWITZERLAND APRIL 25 Thibau Nys of Belgium and Team Lidl Trek celebrates at finish line as stage winner during the 77th Tour De Romandie 2024 Stage 2 a 171km stage from Fribourg to SalvanLes Marecottes 1059m UCIWT on April 25 2024 in SalvanLes Marecottes Switzerland Photo by Luc ClaessenGetty Images

Thibau Nys (Lidl-Trek) scored his second mountain-top finish victory in a month as he caught and passed Emanuel Buchmann (Bora-Hansgrohe) in the dying metres of stage 4 at the Tour de Hongrie to win at Gyöngyös-Kékestető.

The German Champion had looked set for glory after attacking just outside the flamme rouge on the 12km closing climb, but Nys sped past in the dying metres to take the win as Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) came through for second ahead of Buchmann.

Nys now takes over the GC lead of the five-day race ahead of the hilltop finish at Etyek on stage and a challenging hilly final day featuring three second-category climbs on Sunday. He has four seconds in hand over Ulissi, while Buchmann lies in third at six seconds.

"It's incredible, I came here for the stage of tomorrow and the last day," Nys said after his win. "Today we just wanted to test the legs and see where we can end. I didn't really know how to react after the first two easy stages, I felt the legs were a bit lazy, but the team did a hell of a job, and Mathias was unbelievably strong. In the end, I found the perfect legs to make it happen.

"I had to be patient. The last 500 meters kicked really steep so I just knew I had to save something for one big shot in the end. It looked like we were not closing in on Buchmann, but then in the end I went all out and we came fast from behind, then I knew it was going to happen."

The GC battle expected to unfold on the queen stage of the race only came late on the day’s final climb, which saw riders battle up an average gradient of 5.6% towards the top. It was Bora-Hansgrohe who kicked things off with Ben Zwiehoff making a move 3.3km from the top before Buchmann took to the front soon afterwards.

The German team settled into a hard rhythm, dropping riders left, right, and centre as the select group came towards the finale. It was at around 1,300 metres from the line when Buchmann decided to make his move, jumping clear in an attempt to take his first win since early 2020.

He quickly built a gap and looked to be racing on his way to a win and the overall lead, but the chasers closed in as the finish neared, with Nys leading the way.

The 21-year-old, who won stage 2 at last month’s Tour de Romandie, his first road race of the season, sped past in the final 150 metres to deny Buchmann the win, leading home Ulissi as Yannis Voisard (Tudor Pro Cycling) and Wout Poels (Bahrain Victorious) rounded out the top five further back.

The GC moves had come after the early break was brought back midway up the final climb of the day. Astana Qazaqstan riders Michael Mørkøv and Yevgeniy Gidich had been joined in the break by Manuel Pénalver (Polti-Kometa), Siebe Deweirdt (Flanders-Baloise), Balázs Rózsa (Epronex-Hungary), and Christian Bagatin (MBH Bank-Colpack-Ballan).

Deweirdt managed to extend his mountain classification lead along the way, but their time out front drew to a close on the final difficulty of the stage, with sprinter Kristian Sbaragli (Corratec-Vini Fantini) trying a brave but doomed counter-move.

Back in the peloton, DSM-Firmenich PostNL, UAE Team Emirates, and Bora-Hansgrohe made the pacemaking ahead of the late GC battle, though it was a rider from US team Lidl-Trek who would ride off with the big prize at the top of the mountain.

Stage 8: Spoleto to Prati de Tivo, 152 km

Stage Winner: Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates)

Race Leader: Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates)

We know he can win races with dramatic breakaways, but it turns out Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) also can perfectly play out a sprint. In today's race, he just narrowly outsprinted Daniel Martínez (Bora-hansgrohe) and Ben O'Connor (Decathlon AG2R La Mondiale) for the win at the top of the steep final ascent to the finish.

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 8

In case you were wondering, Pogačar has continued to opt for the full pink kit after the sartorial debacle earlier this week .

Today marked the first major mountain stage of the Giro with some of the classic climbs we love to see. Right from the start, it was clear that riders were going to be attempting breakaways before, during and after every climb—mountain stages at the Giro are often where we see unlikely stage winners thanks to a breakaway that comes as a surprise and actually sticks.

By 20 km into the race, a large group had formed at the front, but only 20 seconds separated them from the full might of the peloton. The group ebbed and flowed, and was cut down to 14 riders by just under 100 km to go. Nairo Quintana (Movistar), Romain Bardet (dsm–firmenich PostNL) and Magnus Sheffield (INEOS Grenadiers) were a few of the riders making moves in the lead group, and their lead stretched to over 2 minutes ahead of the peloton at 61 km to go.

But when a team like UAE Team Emirates is chasing the breakaway to preserve Pogačar's overall lead, does it stand much of a chance?

“We thought the breakaway had a good chance, to be honest,” said Thomas in a post-race interview . “Obviously, UAE set a good tempo on the climb, and I guess because it was still quite close, I don’t know if they decided to go for the stage in the beginning, but they certainly decided to go for it in the end.”

As the group hit 15 km to go, heading towards the final climb into Prati di Tivo, the gap had dropped to just over 30 seconds. While several riders made valiant efforts to hold off the peloton, Pogačar sped into the finish with a group of seven riders and ultimately took the sprint.

However, the GC remained relatively unchanged, since seven of the top finishers on the stage were in the top eight in the GC, which is now led by Pogačar by 2:40 over Martinez and Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers).

"I wasn't expecting this today," Pogačar said in the post-race press conference, making him pretty much the only person in the world who wasn't expecting it.

165 riders rolled down the little pink ramp this morning, each one minute apart, for first time trial of this year’s Giro.

Vicious crosswinds pushed riders across the road at points, their giant disc wheels acting as windsails, slowing down even some of the most skilled time triallists around.

And there is arguably no rider more skilled on a TT bike than INEOS Grenadiers’ Filippo Ganna, one of the world’s fastest men in the race against the clock.

“Top Ganna” is what the commentators called him, saying that everyone else looked like a passenger plane next to the fighter jet that is Ganna.

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 7

However, the 40.6-kilometer stage included a mighty pitch in the final stretch, gaining over two-hundred-meters over the last four kilometers, whose multi-digit grades benefitted some of the punchier riders in the bunch. After all, today’s time trail ran from Foligno to Perugia, across the undulating hills of Umbria.

By the time Geraint Thomas—who started the day in second place in the GC standings—rolled down the ramp, his INEOS Grenadiers teammates held all three positions on the podium (Ganna, Thymen Arensmen, Magnus Sheffield). By the time he crossed the line, those results held.

But there was only one rider left in the starting tent behind Thomas: current pink jersey, race favorite, and generational talent across a variety of disciplines, Tadej Pogačar.

Going back to his stunning time trial on the penultimate stage of the 2020 Tour de France, where he snatched the yellow jersey from Primož Roglič, Pogačar has displayed that he too is one of the world’s great time triallists.

cycling ita giro

And today, that skill on a TT bike threw a wrench directly into the works of INEOS’s 1-2-3 day, as Pogačar made up over a minute on the stage’s final six kilometers. Pogačar finished seventeen seconds ahead of Ganna, giving the UAE Team Emirates superstar the stage win.

A bunch of INEOS riders who couldn’t quite nip Pogačar. Seems to be one of the themes emerging from this year’s Giro.

Pogačar’s ride put nearly two additional minutes into his nearest rivals in the GC standings, increasing his overall lead from 46 seconds to 2:36.

Meanwhile, BORA-hansgrohe’s Dani Martinez, who entered the day in third place overall, bested Geraint Thomas by thirteen seconds on the stage, putting him ten seconds ahead of Thomas in the GC standings.

“There was a lot of preparations for this, a lot of ups and downs,” Pogačar said. “I’m super happy that today I felt good. I paced myself until the climb and then the climb, full gas.”

Geraint Thomas, meanwhile, wore a subtle look of disappointment after the race.

“I tried to ride within myself and when it was time to go, I just lacked it a little bit. It is what it is. It’s just one of those days.”

Thomas ended his post-race interview abruptly when the interview reminded him that his teammates did an excellent job on the day, without actually asking a question

“Thanks,” he said sternly, taking a sip of his drink.

Stage Winner: Pelayo Sánchez (Movistar)

May 9, 2024—Looking at the profile of Stage 6, you might think that the day would have been relatively mellow. One-hundred-eighty kilometers, minimal elevation, a pair of category-four climbs. However, thanks to a trio of gravel sectors—the strade bianche of Tuscany—today’s stage was anything but.

What many thought might be a launching pad for Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates), who won March’s Strade Bianche with a stunning eighty-kilometer solo break, ended up seeing a series of breakaways, none of which stuck.

Until one did. And, for the second day in a row, the break stayed away.

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 6

The trio of Movistar’s Pelayo Sánchez , Soudal Quick-Step’s Julian Alaphilippe, and Jayco AlUla’s Luke Plapp had a lead that stretched out to as much as two and a half minutes as the race entered its third and final gravel sector. But INEOS Grenadiers set a blistering pace behind, quickly whittling the three-man breakaway’s lead to less than thirty seconds with just a few kilometers to go.

But the gap stayed at around twenty seconds as the Plapp, Alaphilippe, and Sánchez passed under the 1 km to go banner. Alaphilippe launched early, and Sanchez responded. Though Plapp was hanging on their wheels, it was clear that this was a two-man race to the finish.

In his post-race interview, Sánchez was asked if he knew what he had just accomplished. “No,” Sánchez replied. “This is amazing. I don’t have words. Crazy, crazy day for me. I thought today that I could be in the breakaway, but I could never imagine winning here.”

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 6

Sánchez also admitted that, even though he spent the last several dozen kilometers working with Plapp and Alaphilippe, he tried several times to put time into his mates in the breakaway. “I tried to drop [Plapp and Alaphilippe], but it was impossible for me,” he said. “So, I tried at the end with the sprint. Luckily, I was the fastest.”

Plapp, who spent much of the day in the virtual pink jersey, said after the race, “That was an insane day. The race was out of control, the whole race. It was ridiculous for the first eighty kilometers.”

“The three of us worked reasonably well to the finish,” Plapp added. “We played games a bit. I was half-eyes looking for time and half-eyes looking for the stage, so I ended up riding a bit harder.”

Asked if he was thinking about the pink jersey during his breakaway, Plapp said, “No, no, no. I know (UAE Team Emirates) were never going to let it go. You could see from the gaps they were keeping, they weren’t willing to let the jersey go.”

A Win for the Breakaway as the Peloton Couldn’t Get It Together

Stage Winner: Benjamin Thomas (Cofidis)

cycling ita giro podium

May 8, 2024—Another flat-ish day, another sprint finish. That was supposed to be the script for Wednesday’s fifth stage of the Giro d’Italia. But if there’s a theme emerging from the early stages of this year’s Giro, it’s to expect the unexpected.

Because in a move that seems ever-more-rare, the day’s breakaway stuck, the charging group of sprinters behind unable to catch up.

At the end of the 178-kilometer stage, Benjamin Thomas captured Cofidis’s first win this season. Behind him were EF Education-EasyPost’s Michael Valgren, Andrea Pietrobon of Polti Kometa, and Groupama-FDJ’s Enzo Paleni. The group spent about half of the day with a lead of around one minute over the peloton.

Eight seconds behind Paleni, Lidl-Trek’s Jonathan Milan—the current maglia ciclamino— led the rest of the peloton across the line.

With 5 kilometers to the finish, the four-man breakaway had a solid forty-second lead and it seemed as though the peloton couldn’t organize themselves enough to reel them back in. Ineos Grenadiers had the most notable attack, but pulled off after the 3-kilometer mark, ostensibly working to protect their lead man Geraint Thomas’s time.

From there, nothing much materialized and the breakaway was allowed to duke it out themselves for the win.

“I said maybe today’s my day,” said the French Thomas, who captured both his first WorldTour and Grand Tour victories with the win. “Everything is perfect today. I knew the final because I trained there sometimes. I knew the Montemagno in the final, and it helped me, knowing the cobbles and the corners. It's a nice thing to win in Italy. It means a lot to me.”

Thomas, who is a seasoned track racer, likened the four-man break to a “long, long team pursuit.”

Valgren added that the topography of the parcours aided the breakaway’s chances.

“It was actually only with three or four ks to go (that we thought we could win) because you always think the peloton will take 10-seconds-per-kilometer more or less,” Valgren said after the race. “We kept working well together and there was in our favor kind of downhill. Chapeau to the other guys for working well together. We didn't start to play the games, so it was nice.”

The one thing that was expected was that nothing much changed in the GC battle. UAE Team Emirates’ Tadej Pogačar remains forty-six seconds clear of Geraint Thomas and forty-seven seconds ahead of BORA-hansgrohe’s lead man, Dani Martinez.

Jonathan Milan Wins Sprint Finish

Stage Winner: Jonathan Milan (Lidl-Trek)

May 7, 2024—For the second straight day, the Giro d’Italia ended with a flat sprint that was almost nabbed with a daring and unexpected last-minute attack.

The 190-kilometer route from Acqui Terme to Andora started with a gradual ride into the day’s only categorized climb, the category 3 Colle del Melogno, where the KOM points were taken by Intermarché-Wanty’s Lilian Calmejane. After that, it was an almost wholly downsloping back half of the stage, ending with a straight, flat shot into the seaside town of Andora.

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 4

If the peloton felt a bit jumpy heading into Andora, it no doubt had to do with Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) and Geraint Thomas’s (INEOS Grenadiers) almost successful late break in yesterday’s sprint stage.

And then, just like yesterday, a solo attack was launched with plenty of racing left. Today, it was Ineos-Grenadiers’ Filippo Ganna, one of the fastest solo bike racers that’s ever lived, who attacked at the foot of the day’s final pitch, the Capo Mele, with 4 km to go. However, the long-distance attack was once again in vain, as he was caught and swallowed up with just a few hundred meters to go.

Moments later, another Italian, Lidl-Trek’s Jonathan Milan, launched a furious and commanding 300-meter sprint that would net him his second Giro stage win, exactly one year to the day from his first.

Meanwhile, Dani Martínez, who entered the day in third place in the GC standings, suffered a late-stage mechanical. Lucky for the BORA-hansgrohe racer, it was within the final 3 kilometers, meaning he was awarded the same time as the bunch ahead and lost no extra time to Pogačar and Thomas.

In sad news, Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty) slid out on a slick descent with about 62 kilometers left, crashing out of the race with an injury. It was a brutal reminder of the Eritrean’s luck, who, moments after becoming the first Black African rider to win a Grand Tour stage in 2022’s Giro, suffered a freak injury when the cork from his celebratory champagne bottle shot him in the eye, causing him to abandon the race with a hemorrhage in his eye.

“We saw Ganna going full gas in the last climb, and we just had to catch him,” said Milan of his Italian track teammate. “Today, the guys did such an amazing job. This experience was special because my parents were here today. I’m really happy about it,” Milan, who won last year’s maglia ciclamino, added.

After the race, second-place finisher Kaden Groves said the day’s blisteringly high speeds made the stage “quite scary at times.” And when asked about how his Alpecin-Deceuninck team was shaping up over the Giro’s first week, Groves said, “We’re getting there.”

Soudal Quick-Step’s Tim Merlier Takes Sprint Victory Amidst GC Favorites’ Late Attack

Stage Winner: Tim Merlier (Soudal Quick-Step)

May 6, 2024 – The sprinters had their first chance to shine, as the race’s third stage from Novara to Fassano featured just 750 meters of elevation over 166 kilometers.

However, it wasn’t without a bit of drama, as the race’s biggest GC favorites launched a thrilling attack over the last four kilometers, throwing a wrench into what was expected to be a straightforward day. After an early move from EF-Education EasyPost’s Mikkel Honore, Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) and Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers) followed, forming a small, three-man breakaway that, for a moment, looked as though it might stay away from the group.

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 3

Honoré was swallowed up by the group with about 1 kilometer to go, and given the day’s high pace and series of breakaways, there was some thought that Pogačar and Thomas’s attack might just stick. However, the two GC men were caught with about 400 meters to go, setting up the bunch sprint everyone expected the day to end with.

Soudal Quick-Step’s Tim Merlier nipped a group at the line that included Lidl-Trek’s Jonathan Milan and Intermarche Wanty’s Biniam Girmay, who rounded out the day’s podium, along with Arkea’s Jenthe Biermans and dsm-Firmeninch PostNL’s Tobias Lund Andersen.

After a masterful recovery from a late crash to win Sunday’s second stage, Pogačar started the day in the maglia rosa , forty-five seconds clear of Dani Martínez of BORA-hansgrohe and Geraint Thomas of Ineos Grenadiers. By the time stage 3 was over, those standings remained exactly the same.

“It wasn’t the plan,” Thomas said of the two-man attack over the closing kilometers. “We just wanted to stay out of trouble.”

He added that, over the final few hundred meters, it took everything he had to keep contact with Pogačar. “I was just trying to hold his wheel,” Thomas said, admitting that the attack was never part of the day’s plan.

“It was the hardest victory so far,” stage winner Merlier said of the unexpected chase he and his group of sprinters found themselves in as Thomas and Pogačar rode away. Merlier said he hesitated, causing him to miss out on his leadout man, and eventually forcing him to attack directly into the wind without any support.

Tadej Pogačar Wins Stage 2 and Takes the Maglia Rosa

May 5, 2024 - Tadej Pogačar of UAE Team Emirates wins Stage 2 of the Giro d’Italia 2024 and takes the Maglia Rosa. Twenty-seven seconds behind, Dani Martínez (Bora-hansgrohe) takes second, and Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers) is third.

It was a masterful performance by UAE Team Emirates once Pogačar made it back to the front of the peloton after a small crash due to a front flat tire. The Slovenian leads Thomas and Martinez by 45" in the General Classification.

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 2

In the post-race interview, Pogačar was asked if he panicked after crashing in the lead-up to the last climb. “Not really. I was quite calm. I hit a hole in the city and had a super fast flat tire. There was a bit of confusion. I wanted to stop before the corner, but the DS said, ‘No, no, after the corner.’ I was feeling good. The team was super good today. And then we set the pace that we like and it was perfect,” said the race leader.

“I didn’t know the climb well. Everybody was maybe doing this climb for the first time, and it was hard to guess where to do the [hard] pacing, but I think we did a really good job today. And it was super good the last pull of Rafał Majka in the hard part so that I could attack,” Pogačar added.

“I just wanted a stage win today and some gap. Test the legs a little bit. And the [goal] was to take the pink jersey. Now I can relax a little bit in the next few days with the team and we stay safe in the sprints.”

Geraint Thomas of INEOS Grenadiers found himself meeting his limit in today’s stage. “It was so hard to follow, but I knew if I tried to keep going I would completely blow up. I felt bad for sitting on Ben [O’Connor], but I was on the limit for a while there,” said Thomas in the post-race interview.

Regarding Pogačar’s crash, Thomas said, “Honestly, I didn’t know until I was on the climb, and someone said Tadej was back. The plan was to go to the front, not to attack, but to stay safe on the front.”

Narváez Upstages Pogačar to Secure Stage 1 Victory and Maglia Rosa

Stage Winner: Jhonatan Narváez (INEOS Grenadiers)

Race Leader: Jhonatan Narváez (INEOS Grenadiers)

107th giro d'italia 2024 stage 1

May 4, 2024 - The opening stage of the Giro d’Italia produced plenty of fireworks and a surprise winner on the line. Team UAE Emirates set it up perfectly for Tadej Pogačar on the opening stage. After some long-lasting breakaways were caught, Pogačar broke free in the last four kilometers with Jhonatan Narváez (INEOS Grenadiers) and Max Schachmann (Bora-Hansgrohe). The Slovenian just couldn’t gap those two rivals, and it set it up for a sprint finish. In a bit of a surprise, it was Narváez, the 27-year-old Ecuadorian national champion, outsprinting Schachmann (second on the stage) and Pogačar (third). Narváez earns the first Maglia Rosa of the 2024 Tour of Italy.

Though he didn’t win the stage, Pogačar will head into Stage 2 with an advantage over many of his top GC rivals. Geraint Thomas (INEOS Grenadiers) was 10 seconds behind Pogačar on the stage and, after factoring in time bonuses, 14 seconds behind Pogačar in the GC standings.

“It was a great feeling. We knew it was going to be a stage for me, and I worked a lot on it,” Narváez said in the post-race interview. “Following the best guy in the world on the climb was really hard, so it’s a special victory today. It’s still hurting me now. It was really hard—really, really hard. But in the end, I made it.”

“I think [Pogačar] went too long in the sprint, 200 meters after a really hard stage, and I did a short sprint, and in the end, I took the victory. For me, it’s amazing. There aren’t many opportunities in a Grand Tour to get the maglia rosa on the first day because you have a bunch sprint, a TT, or a different stage. Today was a good opportunity. I worked really, really hard for it,” added Narváez.

  • BI's music team ranked them from worst to best, with the original "Lover" bodysuit in the top spot.

The European leg of Taylor Swift's Eras Tour is underway, and the pop star came armed with a new slate of songs and designer outfits.

The Eras Tour is arranged as a retrospective of Swift's career, spanning nearly two decades and 11 studio albums . Swift does several outfit changes during a single concert, and each segment has a unique aesthetic to match the album in question.

We ranked every outfit Swift has worn onstage from worst to best.

60. The surprise song dress in yellow

Each night during the Eras Tour, Taylor Swift performs an acoustic set with two surprise songs .

The dress for this segment is designed for a quick change; Swift slips it over the "1989" outfit while still on stage. It makes sense for the dress to be plain. But it doesn't make sense for the fabric to be the same color as Big Bird.

Frankly, the yellow dress is ugly. It's way too yellow.

<p>The green dress isn't ugly, but it's not beautiful either.</p>

59. The surprise song dress in green

The green dress isn't ugly, but it's not especially stunning either.

<p>The pink dress still isn't anything to write home about, but Swift looks good in pink.</p>

58. The surprise song dress in pink

The pink dress still isn't anything to write home about, but generally speaking, Swift looks good in pink.

<p>I do appreciate that Swift eschewed the butterfly sleeves and unnecessary ruffles for this updated variant, but this dress still looks like it came from Forever 21.</p>

56. The surprise song dress in blue

Swift wore blue versions of several classic tour looks for the night she announced "1989 (Taylor's Version)."

Blue is the best color for a surprise song dress, purely because it reminds me of Sharpay Evans singing "Bop to the Top."

<p>You know the drill by now. This one is OK, but not great. Mostly it just looks simpler and cheaper than we'd expect from a billionaire — but that's <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/taylor-swift-quiet-luxury-style-2023-12">probably aligned with Swift's masterful PR strategy</a>.</p>

54. "1989" in pink and blue

Swift debuted a new collection of designer looks in Nanterre, France , the first stop on the tour's European leg.

The latest "1989" outfit by Roberto Cavalli is a sequined pink top and blue ombré skirt, much like the skater skirts from the album's original era . Unfortunately, this color combo feels juvenile, perhaps because it reminds me of gender reveal parties .

<p>During her second concert in France, Swift debuted another variation of this look in orange and purple (with mismatched gold and silver shoes).

53. "1989" in purple and orange

During her second concert in France, Swift debuted another variation of this look in orange and purple (with mismatched gold and purple shoes). It's not much better than the first version.

True, Swift doesn't look like a cartoon chipmunk in this color combination, but she does somewhat resemble Dora the Explorer , or a Tide Pod .

<p>The tiered and embroidered "<a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/taylor-swift-folklore-review-tracklist-breakdown-2020-7">Folklore</a>" outfits, custom-made by <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/C6yaL_CMI0y/?hl=en&img_index=1" rel="noopener">Alberta Ferretti</a>, are almost always winners.

52. "Folklore" in yellow

The tiered and embroidered " Folklore " outfits, custom-made by Alberta Ferretti , are almost always winners. The flowy style makes Swift look like a friendly witch, much like her recent collaborator Florence Welch , which is a compliment.

However, this one doesn't suit the era's aesthetic one bit. The mismatch is especially glaring during "My Tears Ricochet," which is intended to parallel a funeral procession .

This dress was likely designed to evoke the fusion of "Folklore" and "Evermore" into one segment, which came with Swift's newly altered setlist for the European leg. But still, as we previously established, yellow is not Swift's color. It doesn't work.

<p>Swift unveiled a hot-pink rendition of the woodsy "Folklore" gown during her second show in France.</p><p>Much like my previous complaint, this is the wrong color for the sister albums segment of the show.</p><p>The songs that populate "Folklore" and "Evermore" are full of yearning, betrayal, regret, depression, and even murder; these are not the hot-girl party bops of "1989" or "Midnights," which call for brighter hues and more pizzazz.</p><p>And if you think I'm being too nitpicky, I'll kindly remind you that Swift has embraced each album's individual color theory, down to <a href="https://store.taylorswift.com/products/taylor-swift-the-eras-tour-poster" rel="noopener">the official Eras Tour branding</a>.</p>

51. "Folklore" in pink

Swift unveiled a hot-pink rendition of the woodsy "Folklore" gown during her second show in France.

Much like my previous complaint, this is the wrong color for the sister albums segment of the show.

The songs that populate "Folklore" and "Evermore" are full of yearning, betrayal, regret, depression, and even murder . These are not the hot-girl party bops of "1989" or "Midnights," which call for brighter hues and more pizzazz.

And if you think I'm being too nitpicky, I'll kindly remind you that Swift has embraced each album's individual color theory, down to the official Eras Tour branding .

<p>There's one dress she wears for "Enchanted" that looks like it's growing mushrooms on it, and another look for the "Fearless" era that has weird noodle-like strings at the end. </p><p>The yellow dress she wears for the acoustic set is also an unfortunate shade for her.</p>

50. The "Speak Now" ballgown that's growing mushrooms

The flowers plopped all over this dress are flimsy and unpleasant-looking. I would be glad to never see it again.

<p>Honestly, Swift's outfits never slay during the "Red" segment, but the ombre romper is the worst offender. It's not terrible, but it doesn't do anything for her.</p>

49. The "Red" romper

Honestly, Swift's outfits never slay during the "Red" segment, but the ombre romper is the worst offender. It's not terrible, but it doesn't do anything for her.

<p>Swift dons floor-grazing outerwear to perform "All Too Well (10 Minute Version)," which helps make the "Red" segment a bit more sophisticated.</p>

48. The "All Too Well" jacket

Swift dons glittery, floor-grazing outerwear to perform " All Too Well (10 Minute Version) ," which helps make the "Red" segment a bit more sophisticated — though it doesn't match the somber vibe of the song. I much preferred the sleek look that Swift wore to perform the song on "Saturday Night Live."

<p>There are three versions of this shirt, inspired by an outfit worn by Swift in the "22" music video: "A lot going on at the moment," "We are never getting back together like ever," and "Who's Taylor Swift anyway? Ew." The shirt is always paired with a black bowler hat.</p><p>The shirt isn't exactly high-fashion, but it gets extra points for the nostalgia factor. The hat is ugly, but it gets even more extra points for the cuteness factor, since Swift always gives it to <a href="https://www.insider.com/taylor-swift-kobe-bryant-daughter-bianka-hug-eras-tour-2023-8">a special fan in the crowd</a>.</p>

47. The "22" shirt

There are five versions of this shirt, inspired by an outfit worn by Swift in the "22" music video: "A lot going on at the moment," "We are never getting back together like ever," "Who's Taylor Swift anyway? Ew," "This is not Taylor's Version," and, most recently, "I bet you think about me." The shirt is always paired with a black bowler hat.

The look doesn't exactly scream high fashion, but it gets extra points for the nostalgia factor. The hat is ugly, but it gets even more extra points for the cuteness factor, since Swift always gives it to a special fan in the crowd .

<p>As Insider's Courteney Larocca has <a href="https://www.insider.com/taylor-swift-eras-tour-unpopular-opinions-setlist-outfits-2023-6">bravely noted</a>, the "weird noodle-like strings" that hang from this dress are absolutely uncalled for.</p>

46. The "Fearless" dress in gold

This is a custom Roberto Cavalli dress , embellished with Swarovski crystals, but somehow it looks like a stringy array of ramen noodles .

<p>Silver is slightly better than gold, but the tassels still look like octopus tentacles.</p>

45. The "Fearless" dress in silver

Silver is slightly better than gold, but the tassels still look like octopus tentacles.

<p>It's too puffy!</p>

44. The cupcake-shaped "Speak Now" ballgown

It's too puffy!

<p>It's too pink!</p>

43. The "Karma" jacket in pink

It's too pink!

<p>Swift performed "High Fidelity" in Atlanta on April 29. The song <a href="https://www.insider.com/taylor-swift-midnights-lyrics-easter-eggs-2022-10">includes the cryptic lyric</a>, "Do you really wanna know where I was April 29?"</p>

42. "Midnights" in pink and purple

This is a much nicer shade of pink.

<p>Blue makes sense for "<a href="https://www.insider.com/taylor-swift-midnights-album-review-tracklist-breakdown-2022-10">Midnights</a>," especially because the album cover features a light-blue font, so this is a happier marriage than the purple coat and pink dress underneath.</p>

41. "Midnights" in blue and purple

Blue makes sense for " Midnights ," especially because the standard album cover features a light-blue font.

The contrast between Swift's bright skin, dark-blue bodysuit, and hot-pink fringe is very compelling.

<p>To match the moody aesthetic of <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/taylor-swift-tortured-poets-department-album-review-tracklist-breakdown-2024-4">her new album</a> and reference her "Fortnight" music video, Swift donned a custom Vivienne Westwood gown.</p><p>It featured a sleeveless, structured bodice, a high-low skirt, and lyrics from "The Tortured Poets Department" printed across it.</p><p>Swift wore the dress with white ankle boots from Christian Louboutin. </p>

I can imagine the new outfit for " The Tortured Poets Department " segment is designed to look like a "crumpled-up piece of paper lying here," evoking both the tragedy of " All Too Well " and the dark-academia aesthetic of the album itself.

It's a solid concept, but I'm sorry: I simply cannot support Swift's obsession with high-low mullet dresses . I thought we left this trend behind in 2010.

Worse still, the lyrics scrawled on the fabric ("I love you, it's ruining my life," from the single " Fortnight ") make it look like Swift is wearing a high-school theater costume, not a couture Vivienne Westwood gown.

<p>Swift adds a military jacket atop her "Tortured Poets" gown to sing "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived," an impassioned performance that casts Swift as the drum major in a marching band. The look is still a little corny, but at least it's a full embrace of the theatrical costume vibe.</p>

34. The "Tortured Poets" military jacket

Swift adds a military jacket atop her "Tortured Poets" gown to sing "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived," an impassioned performance that casts Swift as a soldier on the front lines of a battlefield. The look is still a little corny, but at least it fully embraces the theatrical costume vibe.

<p>After singing "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived," Swift and her dancers perform a brief skit, in which Swift is forced to strip off her dress, put on heels, and smile through the pain.</p><p>The onstage outfit change yields a neutral-colored bralette and matching high-waisted bottoms.

33. The "I Can Do It With a Broken Heart" outfit

After singing "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived," Swift and her dancers perform a brief skit, in which Swift is forced to strip off her dress, put on heels, and smile through the pain.

The onstage outfit change yields a neutral-colored bralette and matching high-waisted bottoms. During night one in France, the set was black, topped with a gold duster . For the second show, it was all white with silver accents .

These ensembles recall the jackets and two-piece sets from The 1989 World Tour, combined with the ringmaster motif from the "Red" era.

At the time, Swift was battling an eating disorder and often feared she might faint onstage.

While the new Eras Tour outfit is relatively simple, this callback adds an extra layer of poignance to Swift's performance of "I Can Do It With a Broken Heart."

<p>For the majority of the US leg, Swift only had one look for the "Evermore" segment: a mustard-yellow dress that screams cottagecore. It's cute but nothing particularly special, and it has grown a little dull over time.</p>

32. The classic "Evermore" dress

For the majority of the US leg, Swift only had one look for the " Evermore " segment: a mustard-yellow dress that screams cottagecore. It's cute but nothing particularly special, and it has grown a little dull over time.

Note: There is a slightly less saturated version of this dress, but they're so similar, they don't warrant separate entries on this list.

<p>Swift has only worn this alternate "Evermore" dress a handful of times, but it made for a nice change of pace — and the deep, sparkling bronze compliments the moody, wintery vibe of songs like "'Tis the Damn Season," "Champagne Problems," and "Tolerate It." </p>

31. The bronze "Evermore" dress

Swift has only worn this alternate "Evermore" dress a handful of times, but it made for a nice change of pace — and the deep, sparkling bronze compliments the moody, wintery vibe of songs like "'Tis the Damn Season," "Champagne Problems," and "Tolerate It." 

<p>The "Speak Now" outfit is a callback to the Speak Now World Tour, when Swift wore sparkly gowns while singing "Enchanted." For the Eras Tour, Swift pumped up the drama with voluminous skirts and embroidered jewels.</p><p>The gold version is fine, but looks slightly cheaper than its counterparts — like an extravagant prom dress. </p>

30. The "Speak Now" ballgown in gold

The ballgown is a callback to the Speak Now World Tour, when Swift wore sparkly gowns while singing "Enchanted." For The Eras Tour, Swift pumped up the drama with voluminous skirts and embroidered jewels.

The gold version is fine, but looks slightly cheaper than its counterparts — like an extravagant prom dress. 

<p>Instead of muted gold, silver offers a lovely contrast with the purple visuals of "Speak Now."</p>

29. The "Speak Now" ballgown in silver

Instead of muted gold, silver offers a lovely contrast with the purple visuals of "Speak Now."

<p>The baby-pink version of the "Enchanted" gown is almost the best, with its flattering neckline and strips of sparkles that resemble falling rain.</p>

28. The "Speak Now" ballgown in pink

The baby-pink version of the "Speak Now" ballgown is the best among the original set of options, with its flattering neckline and strips of sparkles that resemble falling rain.

<p>The newest "Fearless" look that Swift debuted in France is a solid, mid-tier choice. It's much better than the era's stringy options, though it doesn't measure up to the original fringe-covered mini dress.</p>

27. The "Fearless" dress with metallic fringe

The newest "Fearless" look that Swift debuted in France is a solid, mid-tier choice. It's much better than the era's stringy options, though it doesn't measure up to the original fringed mini dress.

<p>The deep purple hue made for an exciting change when Swift debuted this look in East Rutherford, New Jersey, but the tassels throw off the whole effect. They make the bodysuit look cheaper than it is.</p>

26. The "Lover" bodysuit with purple tassels

The deep purple hue made for an exciting change when Swift debuted this look in East Rutherford, New Jersey — but the tassels throw off the whole effect. They make the bodysuit look cheaper than it is.

<p>The orange set is nice, but it's the weakest link of the "1989" colors (and signals that she'll wear the yellow surprise-song dress).</p><p>Maybe it's a subtle Easter egg for "Karma," the <a href="https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/taylor-swift-karma-lost-album-real-1234598609/" rel="noopener">rumored album</a> that Swift scrapped in between "1989" and "Reputation." (In <a href="https://www.insider.com/taylor-swift-the-man-music-video-details-references-easter-eggs-2020-2">the music video for "The Man,"</a> the word is graffitied on the wall in orange paint.)</p>

25. "1989" in orange

The orange set is nice, but it's the weakest link of the original Roberto Cavalli sets (and signals that she'll wear the yellow surprise-song dress. Yuck).

Maybe it's a subtle Easter egg for "Karma," the rumored album that Swift scrapped in between "1989" and "Reputation." (In the music video for "The Man," the word is graffitied on the wall in orange paint.)

<p>The green is prettier than orange, but not as pretty as pink.</p>

24. "1989" in green

The green is prettier than orange, but not as pretty as pink.

<p>Although hot pink isn't quite right for the overall vibe of "1989," it does pair well with the girlish charm of "Blank Space" and the fiery passion of "Bad Blood."</p>

23. "1989" in pink

Although hot pink isn't quite right for the overall vibe of "1989," it does pair well with the girlish charm of "Blank Space" and the fiery passion of "Bad Blood."

<p>After 26 concerts, we finally got to see Swift perform songs from "1989" wearing the album's distinctive color. This glittering blue set recalls the New York City skyline that inspired Swift's iconic pop songs.</p>

After 26 concerts, we finally got to see Swift perform songs from "1989" wearing the album's distinctive color. This glittering blue set recalls the New York City skyline that inspired Swift's iconic pop songs.

20. The "Midnights" bodysuit with cutouts

This version of the "Midnights" bodysuit, which Swift debuted in Los Angeles, is likely designed to resemble an outfit that Swift wore during the 1989 World Tour .

It's one of her most daring looks yet , but the sheer patches in the abdomen look a little misplaced.

<p>The "Lover" bodysuit is always gorgeous, but there's something slightly off about the blue-and-yellow color combination. The tones are too muted to complement the show's opening visuals.</p>

19. The "Lover" bodysuit in blue and yellow

The glitzy "Lover" bodysuits, custom-made by Versace, are always gorgeous. But there's something slightly off about the blue-and-yellow color combination. The tones are too muted to complement the show's opening visuals.

<p>In theory, this color combination is very compelling; it reminds me of a sunset. But in reality, the bodysuit is just slightly too orange.</p>

18. The "Lover" bodysuit in orange and pink

In theory, this is a strong color combo; it reminds me of a sunset. But in reality, the bodysuit is just slightly too orange.

<p>Swift slips a bedazzled blazer over her "Lover" bodysuit to perform "The Man" and "You Need to Calm Down." The latest iteration is a pretty pale orange, though it doesn't feel as powerful as the other options.</p>

17. "The Man" blazer in orange

Swift slips a bedazzled blazer over her "Lover" bodysuit to perform "The Man" and "You Need to Calm Down." The latest iteration is a pretty pale orange, though it doesn't feel as powerful as the other options.

<p>Swift typically slips on a silver blazer over her "Lover" bodysuit to perform "The Man" and "You Need to Calm Down." With the matching red-bottomed boots, it's a powerful combination.</p>

16. "The Man" blazer in silver

The glittering silver blazer was the first costume change ever seen during The Eras Tour. With the matching red-bottomed Christian Louboutin boots, it remains an effective mix of elements.

<p>We love the silver blazer, but the black blazer is extremely hot.</p>

15. "The Man" blazer in black

We all love the silver blazer, but the black blazer is extremely hot.

<p>The sheer, baby-blue cape sleeves are very pretty, but the color isn't the right fit for "Folklore," which is not a blue-sounding album in the slightest.</p>

14. "Folklore" in blue

The sheer, baby-blue cape sleeves are gorgeous, but this color isn't quite the right fit for "Folklore," which is not a blue-sounding album in the slightest.

"Illicit Affairs"

13. "Folklore" in purple

"Folklore" isn't a purple-sounding album either, but this dress does look like something a young widow might wear in a Jane Austen film adaptation , so it works.

<p>Cream is a fitting color for "Folklore," an album that evokes earthy and neutral tones.</p>

12. "Folklore" in cream

Cream is a fitting color for "Folklore," an album that evokes earthy and neutral tones.

<p>This is only slightly different from "Folklore" in cream, but the lace adds a new edge — romantic and old-timey, perfect for the "pioneer woman in a forbidden love affair" that <a href="https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/paul-mccartney-taylor-swift-musicians-on-musicians-1089058/" rel="noopener">Swift imagined</a> while she was writing these songs.</p>

11. "Folklore" with lace

This is only slightly different from "Folklore" in cream, but the lace adds a new edge — romantic and old-timey, well-suited for the "pioneer woman in a forbidden love affair" that Swift imagined while she was writing these songs.

<p>Although blue is not the traditional "Speak Now" color, everything about this dress is truly stunning, from the floral details to the elegant train.</p>

10. The "Speak Now" ballgown in blue

Although blue is not the traditional "Speak Now" color, everything about this dress is truly stunning, from the floral details to the elegant train.

Plus, the color recalls a sky-blue ballgown that Swift wore during the original "Speak Now" tour in 2011 , giving this look an extra layer of nostalgic charm.

<p>There aren't any official photos yet of the newest "Speak Now" look, which Swift debuted in France. But according to <a href="https://x.com/ThrowbackTaylor/status/1788744000620364087" rel="noopener">photos shared by fans</a> online, it's the best one yet.</p><p>The skirt has just enough volume to look elegant instead of puffy — while the gown's delicate, glittering details evoke <a href="https://x.com/mjdelarue13/status/1788816536268095716" rel="noopener">a similar dress that Swift wore to perform "Enchanted" in 2011</a>, which is currently on display at the <a href="https://www.countrymusichalloffame.org/calendar/tseras-exhibition" rel="noopener">Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville</a>.</p>

9. The "Speak Now" ballgown with embellishments

There aren't any official photos yet of the newest "Speak Now" look, which Swift debuted in France. But according to photos shared by fans online, it's the best one yet.

The skirt has just enough volume to look elegant instead of puffy — while the gown's delicate, glittering details evoke a similar dress that Swift wore to perform "Enchanted" in 2011 , which is currently on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville .

<p>The navy bodysuit is an Eras Tour classic, dark and sparkling like midnight rain. It's an almost-perfect choice to close the show.</p>

8. The original "Midnights" bodysuit

The navy bodysuit is an Eras Tour classic, dark and twinkling like midnight rain. It's an almost-perfect choice to close the show.

<p>Swift told the Pittsburgh crowd that she's always wanted to play "Seven" in her home state. The song includes the lyric, "But I, I was high in the sky / With Pennsylvania under me."</p>

7. "Folklore" in green

Out of all the flowy "Folklore" gowns, green is the best fit for the album's aura. It makes Swift look like a woodland fairy.

"Fearless"

6. The original "Fearless" dress

Swift's flapper-inspired dress is ideal for performing classics like "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story." The fringe is fun and youthful, just like the original "Fearless" era, but paired with knee-high boots, it's still chic and modern.

In fact, according to Vogue , the dress is designed to resemble a similar Roberto Cavalli dress that Swift wore during her original "Fearless" tour.

"We chose a beautiful champagne color, which is very Taylor," designer Fausto Puglisi told the magazine.

<p>If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The one-legged "Reputation" jumpsuit is bold and sexy with a hint of danger, <a href="https://www.insider.com/taylor-swift-albums-ranked-by-quality-best-worst-2023-3">just like the album itself</a>.</p>

5. The only "Reputation" outfit

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. The one-legged "Reputation" jumpsuit, also by Roberto Cavalli, is bold and sexy with a hint of danger, just like the album itself . Puglisi described it as "more of a badass, rock and roll look."

<p>There is something especially ethereal about this version of the classic "Midnights" bodysuit. The blue has a slightly warmer, richer tone — a better match for Swift's ocean eyes and pinkish undertones than navy — and the scalloped detailing on the bodice is exquisite up close.</p>

4. The scalloped "Midnights" bodysuit

There is something especially ethereal about this version of the classic "Midnights" bodysuit, custom-made by Oscar de la Renta.

The blue has a slightly warmer, richer tone — a better match for Swift's ocean eyes and pinkish undertones than navy — and the scalloped detailing on the bodice is exquisite up close. Paired with Swift's now-signature garter, this look is a total knockout.

<p>Swift looks like a <a href="https://www.insider.com/barbie-movie-ending-perfect-last-line-2023-7">Barbie come to life</a> in this version of the blazer, which she debuted on stage in Argentina. It also gives her performance of "The Man" a flirty, feminine edge.</p>

3. "The Man" blazer in hot pink

Swift looks like a Barbie come to life in this version of the blazer, which she debuted onstage in Argentina. It also gives her performance of "The Man" a flirty, feminine edge.

<p>Swift also debuted this pink version of her opening look in Argentina. The gorgeous combination of shades, from baby pink to strawberry and fuchsia, compliments the tone of songs like "Cruel Summer" and "Lover."</p>

2. The "Lover" bodysuit in pink and red

Swift also debuted this pink version of her opening look in Argentina. The gorgeous combination of shades, from baby pink to strawberry and fuchsia, compliments the tone of songs like "Cruel Summer" and "Lover."
