The 2022 Tour de France has been one for the ages. Exciting racing, fantastic performances, nail-biting edge-of-your-seat moments on almost every stage, and a host of new tech. It’s been a busy month with no shortage of content for CyclingTips to cover.

As such, some things slipped through the net, but now on the eve of the final stage, we sat down to scroll through our tech-filled camera SD cards and pick out some of the tech that didn’t make it into a standalone article. Not because it isn’t interesting, but because either it was intended to be part of a dedicated standalone that, for one reason or another, didn’t materialise, or held off while waiting for more details that never arrived.

The good news is the contents of this tech savings piggy bank make for a great wrap-up gallery. Enjoy

KTM Revelator Prototype

T-3 days to Le Grand Depart, and we already spotted Cyril Lemoine’s new KTM Revelator. Expecting KTM to reveal the Revelator at either the Tour or Eurobike, we kept these shots back for the big reveal. KTM still hasn’t revealed that Revelator revelation.

Unfortunately, even when KTM does fully reveal the Revelator, it’s unlikely this zebra-like paint job will be available to you and me. One can hope, though, and in the meantime here’s some close-up shots of the new bike.
