Where can I buy Tom Pidcock’s tires? A video of THAT Tour de France descent

Genuine question: where can I buy Tom Pidcock’s tires? On stage 12 of the Tour de France, with the breakaway a few minutes up the road and seemingly established, Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) attacked soon after the peloton crested the top of the Col du Galibier. On the 17km descent that followed, the 22-year-old Briton gave the Tour de France – and in turn, its millions of viewers – a lesson in bike handling. He also gave his tire sponsor a marketing story to tell for years to come.

Tom Pidcock appeared to defy the known limits of tire grip as he flew down the descent, and within 4km, he had carved 35 seconds of an advantage over the peloton. Soon after, he shot around the outside of Matis Louvel (Arkea Samsic) and quickly caught Chris Froome, who had attacked some 5km before him. His ability to read the road, hit every apex and use every centimeter of the road to gain free seconds was labeled by many as mesmerizing.
