Mark Cavendish, also known as the Manx Missile, hopes to make cycling history by surpassing Eddy Merckx’s record of 34 Tour de France stage wins. With the record currently a tie, the British cyclist needs just one more stage win to etch his name in history.

Mark Cavendish will be riding the Wilier Filante SLR aero bike during the 2023 Tour de France for Astana Qazaqstan Team.

Wilier’s tribute to Cavendish is a unique blend of beauty and performance. Swapping out the team’s usual blue marble colors, this special edition Wilier Filante SLR boasts a stunning white marble and gold design.

The swirling white marble adorns the fork, one-piece handlebar/stem, and top of the frame, while a matte black wrap the lower sections of the seat tube, downtube, and seat stays. The bike is finished with striking gold hues and Cavendish’s ‘CVNDSH’ touch on the fork.
