If you've been glued to the Tour de France this year and are wondering where you might be able to acquire one of their amazing bikes... you've landed on the right page! Here we're rounding up top-of-the-range, team edition bikes that are pretty much identical to the ones the pro rides and are available to buy, for a pretty penny of course. 

Bike brands often sell more affordable versions of models that sponsored teams ride, with spec downgrades to make price points, but that's not what we're covering here. These bikes are either virtually identical to those ridden in the Tour or have just a few differences. Essentially, they're of a similar or the exact same 'level'.

Sometimes there will be differences in components. A race team might have a deal with a certain manufacturer, for example, while the bike brand has commercial reasons for speccing product from a different company. Mainly, though, the components shown here are the same as you'll see used in the Tour de France. 

To keep things manageable, we’ve stuck with bikes that are finished in team livery or at least the same colours as the relevant team. If team colours don’t interest you, all of the framesets shown here come in other finishes too. 

> The bikes of the Tour de France

Every frameset that you see in the Tour de France is commercially available, or it will be soon – that's one of the UCI's rules. Even if a bike brand doesn't offer a complete bike built up with the same components used by a particular team, you could put together a copy of anything ridden by the pros... as long as you're prepared to throw enough money at it. Prices remain pretty similar to the replicas from the Tour last year, starting at around £8,000 for a complete bike.

Here are bikes you can get your hands on that are the closest to those ridden by the pros at the Tour de France.

2024 Van Rysel RCR Pro team replica

Van Rysel's RCR Pro, the brand's lightweight and aerodynamic road bike, has been seen in the pro peloton this year ridden by Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale riders. 

In terms of the spec, it's built up with a top-level Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 groupset, paired with a power meter and Swiss Side Hadron Ultimate 500 wheels wrapped in Continental GP5000 tyres. 

The integrated cockpit and seatpost are both carbon, and the cables are fully internal. There's also plenty of aero-shaping on display with all the features we've come to expect from aero road bikes over the years. 

This Decathlon-AG2R La Mondiale team bike replica is £9,000 from Decathlon 

Lidl-Trek: Trek Madone SLR 9 AXS Gen 8 £12,500

2024 Trek Madone SLR 9 Gen 8 Lidl Trek

The weapons of choice for Lidl-Trek riders used to be the Trek Madone and Trek Émonda, but last week, Trek combined its two top-end road platforms with the launch of the Madone Gen 8 moving towards a one-bike-to-do-it-all approach. 

For the top-tier replica, SRAM supplies the groupsets, Trek's Bontrager brand provides pretty much everything else and the tyres are from Pirelli. 

If £12,500 is too much to spend, you can also get the SLR 7 Gen 8 in Lidl-Trek Livery for £8,000 with Shimano's Ultegra Di2 groupset.

Factor has released a limited edition Ostro Vam road bike as ridden by Israel-Premier Tech in a design that is said to pay homage to the iconic bleu-blanc-rouge of the French flag. 

Complete bikes start at $9,199 and can be customised based on your choice of groupset. These bikes are fitted with Black Inc's 48/58 wheelset, which was developed alongside the Ostro Vam to help keep the weight down, along with Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres.

You can spec the bike how you wish with prices starting at £6,620 for a frameset and £10,300 for a complete bike. A build including Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 – the groupset used by Astana Qazaqstan – will set you back £12,400. 

This is complete with DT Swiss wheels, Corsa Control tyres and a Selle Italia saddle, but any of these can also be specced to your preference.

Bahrain Victorious: Merida Reacto Team £8,500

UAE Team Emirates: Colnago V4RS £9,727.76

2024 Colnago V4RS UAE Team Emirates

Colnago offers its top-level V4Rs in a UAE Team Emirates finish. It’s not the most eye-catching finish ever – it’s pretty low key, to be honest – but you get a UAE flag and some UAE Emirates logos.

The V4RS is equipped with Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 and Enve SES wheels, as ridden by the pros. You can also get your hands on a lower spec version from Bike Inn for around £6,000 , which comes with Shimano Ultegra Di2 and Fulcrum wheels. 

Buy the Colnago V4Rs for £9,727.76 from Lordgun Bicycles 

Arkéa-B&B Hotels: Bianchi Oltre RC £9,999

2024 Bianchi Oltre RC

This one is a bit of a cheat because it’s not a team edition, it’s just that Arkea Samsic happen to use the Oltre RC in this colour scheme and with almost the same build.

Okay, the pros use Vision wheels, Vittoria tyres and Selle Italia saddles rather than the Pirelli and Bianchi options fitted here, but aside from the team logos, those are the only real differences.

The Bianchi Oltre RC is £9,999 from Sigma Sports

I'm going to spend north of 12 bags on a bike that's dolled up in the colours of a discount supermarket, and a bike that unshipped it's chain on a ( record breaking ) sprint finish, and had mechanicals requiring 2 bike changes, on one stage am I? Errrm pass the crack pipe over here when you're done😂😂
