Three-time world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) arrived at the 2019 Tour de France in search of a record seventh green jersey. And as the outright favourite for the points jersey, the Slovakian didn't have too bad a start to his campaign – although he was left a little frustrated – when he finished second to surprise winner Mike Teunissen (Jumbo-Visma) on the opening stage.
Just like at last year's Tour de France, Sagan is racing the sprint stages on a Specialized S-Works Venge in his custom-painted Sagan Collection finish, with its combination of metallic, glitter and matt paint finishes.
Sagan's Specialized is paired with a full Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 series groupset, including Shimano Dura-Ace disc brakes. Specialized's sponsored teams Deceuninck-QuickStep and Bora-Hansgrohe have raced exclusively on disc brakes for the 2019 season, and seeing as the latest version of the Venge is disc brake-only, Sagan's Tour de France race bike is no exception.
Alongside the Venge, Sagan will also have the option to race on a Tarmac for the hillier and mountain stages, plus a Shiv TT for the time trial stages.
