The Ford support vehicles assisting the team including two time winner Chris Froome are the all new Ford Edge, Kuga, S-Max, Mondeo as well as the stunning new Ford Mustang. Additional support is provided by the award winning Ford Transit range to carry all the kit and equipment needed to keep the team on the road.
The fleet of Ford Mondeos on route each day have been specially adapted through the suspension to carry the 400kg of bikes that are needed each day to get the team through the Alps and other mountainous regions. Whilst alloy plates 5mm thick have been added to protect the cars as they complete the various stages.
