Specialized extends bike deal with Bora-Hansgrohe

Bicycle brand Specialized has extended its partnership with UCI WorldTour team Bora-Hansgrohe for two more years, from 2020 to 2021.

Specialized rider Peter Sagan has won three UCI World Championships on Specialized bikes, including one with the Bora-Hansgrohe team in 2017.

The rider has also created his own Sagan Collection with Specialized.

Sagan said in a press release: “They have been instrumental in my victories in the last five seasons, but the roots of the special relationship go even further back. My first ever world championship title, at the 2008 UCI Junior Mountain Bike World Championships, was won on a Specialized bike, as were my three consecutive victories at the UCI Road World Championships in 2015, 2016 and 2017.”

Specialized is bike supplier to the UCI WordTour team Deceuninck-Quick-Step for the 2019 season.
