BIKE CHECK: Elisa’s winning Ronde van Vlaanderen Madone

A beautiful win for Elisa Longo Borghini on a beautiful Madone SLR.

Elisa Longo Borghini stood on the top step of the Ronde van Vlaanderen podium on Sunday after a performance that proved she is back to being every bit the rider Lidl-Trek knew she would be again after a difficult 2023. In order to reach your full potential though, you need a bike capable of keeping up with you and, fortunately, the Italian national champion had just that.
