QuickStep-Innergetic Signs with Specialized
Editor's Note: We broke this story yesterday, however, this is the official release, with more details.
QuickStep-Innergetic announced they have chosen Specialized to supply their team bikes and select equipment for 2007 and beyond. The team's marquee riders - such as reigning world and Olympic champion Paolo Bettini and 2005 world champion Tom Boonen - will be perfectly served by the diverse range of technologically advanced bicycles created by the S-Works division at Specialized.
Effective 1/1/07, Bettini's choice will be the S-Works Tarmac SL for its razor sharp handling, minimal weight, and efficiency. Boonen, often known as The King of the Cobbles, will opt for the all-new S-Works Roubaix SL.
With a diverse roster hailing from no fewer than eight different countries, the QuickStep-Innergetic team brings a truly international squad that complements the global appeal of Specialized.
"Having Specialized bikes under the world's very best riders with the QuickStep and Gerolsteiner squads will inspire even stronger focus and greater innovation from our engineers, developers, and designers. It shows Specialized dealers worldwide that we are fully committed to making our bikes and equipment the most desirable," said Specialized founder and president, Mike Sinyard.
