All AG2R La Mondiale riders at this year’s Giro d’Italia will be using the limited edition pink OSPW including strong all-rounder Matteo Montaguti, who has previously podiumed in second place at Stage 8 of the Giro d’Italia (2016) which involved a gruelling section over the Alpe di Poti consisting of a partly unpaved climb.

Alexandre said: “The Giro is such a special race. With the OSPW from CeramicSpeed I have no need to worry about an underperforming drivetrain and, with 21 stages in total, we all have very high demands from our equipment.”
