    Default New XC's in the Tour de France

    i watched the prologue today and noticed that Oscar Pereiro's team CAISSE D’EPARGNE-ILLES BALEARS, is running new XC's as their support vehicles. Just thought I would give everyone a heads up!
    White 1998 V70 XC Stock for NOW!


    Dreams-
    Finish Stage 0, iPD ECU, EST/iPD Dual Exhaust, downpipe, 16T, rear wing, iPD sways, Quickbrick end links, strut brace. I think that will make a pretty fun XC-R!

    This might seem like a minor technicality, but I caught a glimpse of the XC70 support vehicle yesterday during the first stage and it appeared to be a MY06 or 07. Cool to see nonetheless!

    On a somewhat related note, check out SRAM’s support fleet of XCs.

    More pics here.

    I always suspected that color red would be fantastic on an XC70 too bad Volvo never offered such a choice.

    Default Stage 1 of the TdeF

    Sorry - they don't look like MY08s to me - still look cool though....

    It looks like they've sprayed the cladding gloss black.

    Must be a heck of a weight in them to make them sit down at the back like that.

    Hey - regarding the SRAM XC70's...I have a pic of my XC parked next to one in Monterey, California while attending the Sea Otter Classic.
    I, myself, am a bike racer (not road, but downhill and 4x).
