BIKE CHECK: Mads’ winning Gent-Wevelgem Madone

A statement win on a statement bike for Mads Pedersen at Gent-Wevelgem

One of the best Classics riders in the world needs a bike equal of calibre but, fortunately for Mads Pedersen, he has just that.

Here is the Madone SLR that was prepared to perfection by Pedersen’s mechanic Jeroen Heymans and that allowed him to extract every ounce of speed from each pedal turn in order to secure the first win of his Classics season at Gent-Wevelgem on Sunday.
