Whether he’s powering through cobbled classics or muscling his way through bunch sprints, Mads Pedersen is a threat to win many kinds of races.
This month, the sprinting prowess of the Danish star was on full display as he picked up his first career Giro d’Italia stage win, a feat which also marked his third grand tour in a row winning a stage.
A common thread tying together these great wins, including three Vuelta stages and one each at the Tour and now the Giro, is his Trek Madone aero bike. Although Trek has a dedicated classics bike in the Domane and a climbing bike in the Émonda, the company has managed to supply the Madone with enough comfort and a low enough weight to make it the Dane’s weapon of choice most race days.
Take a closer look at Mads Pedersen’s latest generation Trek-Segafredo team issue Madone SLR 9 bike. It’s built with a Sram Red eTap AXS groupset, Bontrager wheels and saddle, and Time pedals.
