In September, Lizzie Armitstead won her first World Road Title to top off what had been an incredible season. Boels Dolmans bike sponsor, Specialized, have made her a rather special bike to celebrate the rainbow bands, which Dan took a look at down in Nice.
With both Peter Sagan and Lizzie Armitstead winning their respective World Road Titles in Richmond this year, Specialized could easily have come up with a similar design of bike for both. On the contrary though, Lizzie’s bike, which Dan looks at in this video, is very different to the one that Sagan was using in Abu Dhabi.
