The 100th edition of the Tour de France saw a victory for rider Marcel Kitten competing for Team Argos Shimano, using a frame from Felt Bicycles built from TeXtreme Spread Tow carbon fabrics.

After the win on the 29th June, Marcel Kitten said, “I am really proud of all my teammates, who did an amazing job today. They worked throughout the whole day to keep me in good position and to protect me. The finale was very hectic, but the guys stayed calm and they knew exactly what to do – just like we trained for. They reorganised after the crash and took responsibility. We trained mentally and physically for this kind of situation and together with the knowledge we had of the course this helped us stay relaxed and we followed our plan.”
