As we announced last week, the new Jaguar F-Pace, Jaguar first ever SUV, was unveiled in front of the spectators participating in first stage of Tour de France. The medium-sized crossover was lightly camouflaged and anticipated the production lines of the vehicle that we will see this fall, during Frankfurt Motor Show.
 
Five Team Sky riders (Ian Stannard, Luke Rowe, Peter Kennaugh, Leopold König  and Chris Froome) were supported by the F-Pace during the Grand Depart, providing a real world test of Jaguar’s first performance crossover.
 

A special bike rack, designed with an innovative telescopic clamp by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations, was developed specifically for the stage and carried two Team Sky’s Pinarello Bolide Time Trial bikes.

 
As we said, the F-Pace shed its hard camouflage in public for the first time and instead sported a specially created wrap, hinting at the final design of the vehicle.
 
Team Sky Head of Technical Operations & Commercial, Carsten Jeppesen, said: "The atmosphere in Utrecht was incredible. The Netherlands has a huge passion for cycling and right from the moment we arrived at the start line, you could feel the excitement. The appearance of Jaguar’s F-Pace prototype definitely added to the hype today – you could see it made a big impact with the crowds."
