Carlos Sastre is the 2008 Tour de France Champion and to commemerate this SRAM presented him with a LTE Limited Tour Edition grupo for the 2010 Tour. Carlos is riding a special Cervelo R5 ‘California’ bike with yellow touches that match the LTE group perfectly. The end result is probably the classiest looking ride in the bunch, appropriate for a classy guy like Carlos. Here’s some detailed shots of the Sastre machine.
