When you’re the two-time defending World Champion, people make special things for you. In the case of Peter Sagan, the latest gift is this custom Specialized S-Works Venge ViAS. After spending the last few seasons riding for the Tinkoff squad, the Slovakian superstar has taken his talents to the upstart German-based Bora-Hansgrohe team. The team spent the previous two season aboard Argon 18 steeds, but when it signed Sagan Specialized jumped into the picture, and will be the team’s sponsor for bikes, helmets, shoes, tires and wheels. Here’s a closer look at what will undoubtedly be one of the best looking and winningest bikes during the upcoming WorldTour race season. All photo are courtesy Specialized/BrakeThrough Media.
