Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic and UAE Team Emirates' Tadej Pogacar are set to wear custom-made time trial suits with the Yellow and White colours as leaders of their classifications at the time trial of the Tour de France.

On the eve of the decisive individual time trial of the French grand tour, the leaders of the General Classification and the Young Rider standings receive the visit of two seamstresses, two model-makers and a Le Coq Sportif prototypist to customize their suits for the competition.

Roglic chose a short sleeves and short bib suit. "The sleeves and legs were shortened by 2cm," explained the organisation of the race in a statement. "The waist was also adjusted by 4 cm to reduce floding as well as the upper back and shoulders reduced by 1.5cm. The current Slovenian leader wished to reduce the neckline by 1cm allowing a perfect aerodynamics and an ease of breathing.

"Tadej Pogacar choose a long sleeves and short bib suit. The length of the sleeves has been reduced by 7cm and the wrist opening by 1cm. A reduction of 2.5cm has been made at the neckline and the middle of the back with the addition of a clip allowing a fit adapted to the young runner. At the request of the Slovenian, the shorts and the waist have not been reworked."
