Bike switch for Annemiek legal?

What a spectacular 1st edition of the Tour De France Femmes!!!

Had a question about Annemiek Van Vleuten bike switch from yellow to her main bike? I’ve read it was a planned switch bc she preferred her black bike with blue decals bc the yellow bike was heavier due to the paint. Is that legal? Because I remember when Ganna switched from disc brake to rim brake he got DQed from the Tour de la Provence bc it was predetermined.

Either way I’m sure she would have won anyway with the yellow bike lol

She went back out of the peloton and switched bikes. Ganna’s bike was waiting for him to switch out, IIRC.


Cool thanks for the clarification
