yeah, I guess it's more supposed to be a general tweet, saying that they (not too surprisingly) are going to use time trial bikes today instead of the usual road bike. But Brändle got a new one indeed, as he wrote yesterday:

(gt) Another tough mountain stage, close to home, then the final time trial awaits Matthias Brändle at the Giro d‘Italia. And the 31-year-old will tackle this with a new racing bike. Just yesterday, the last parts were treated in Vorarlberg by the carbon specialist Marcel Summer in Dornbirn and sent to Italy. It was the posture for the aerobar. The time trial machine will be assembled in Milan, where Brändle will see it for the first time.

"My new time trial machine is arriving piece by piece. 90 percent have already been manufactured, currently Marcel Summer from CHAMPN. CLUB is still taking care of the last adapter plate for the handlebars. On my part, I would like to say a big thank you to the 'Ländle' for that, especially as there will be a somewhat "intimate kind of handover" by them at the San Bernardino Pass on Saturday. How it's going to work is difficult to predict. As an optimist, I say: It will run like hell ... "

"The Giro 2021 went great for our team despite a couple of falls. Of course, I want to ensure a perfect finish on Sunday. I'm not sure how far it can go, but one thing is certain: I'll give everything for it. "

Hard to believe it's really worth 2s per km as he suggested earlier on, but who knows...
