World champion Thor Hushovd won the 13th stage of the 2011 Tour de France after a thrilling finish to the 152.5km trek from Pau to Lourdes. Thor was wearing Bont’s WCE Vaypor Shoes.
“I really didn’t think I would win this stage,” said Hushovd, who took the race lead when helping his Garmin team win stage two’s team time trial and held it for a week.
“I did things right tactically. It’s true that I descend very well. I knew I had to. It was super.”
The Bont Vaypor WCE has a fully heat moldable monocoque chassis and is 100% carbon. The innersole is EVA thermo-moldable and the stack height 3.6mm. The shoe boasts a Z form Velcro Straps + Buckle (Replaceable) and weighs just 240 grams.
