The new Orbea Orca is here - and it's spectacular

In time for the Tour de France, Orbea have given their flagship machine, the Orca, a new look.

As you can see from the picture, there's a whole lot more of orange - they've even managed to include the famous Euskaltel butterfly on the top tube. If you look closely, you can also see the Basque flag, the Ikurriña, on the monostay above the rear wheel.

Euskaltel first rode the Orca in that legendary 2003 Tour that saw Ibán Mayo and Haimar Zubeldia put both their team's name, and that of their equipment provider, on the global cycling map.

The new bike colour scheme goes hand in hand with the new-look Orbea Odin helmet the riders will be using in France and for the rest of the season.

Check out the video teaser below to see Samuel Sánchez try on both the helmet and the bike:
