Alberto Contador\'s bike gets the SRAM Limited Tour Edition gruppo treatment

Number 1 at the Tour de France, Alberto’s bike shows that he’s already taken Tour, Giro and Vuelta victories.

SRAM’s new LTE (Limited Tour Edition) group has created a huge buzz at the Tour de France this year. SRAM’s star riders such as Lance Armstrong, Carlos Sastre and of course Alberto Contador received LTE groups to honour their previous Tour victories and now Yellow Jersey men Fabian Cancellara and Andy Schleck have been sporting LTE. Here’s a look at Alberto’s Tour de France ride on completion with the LTE setup.
