Romain Bardet’s Focus Izalco Max RED eTap
Romain Bardet began his professional career in 2012 with his current team AG2R LA MONDIALE. While he is one of the best all-around riders in the peloton, he remains of man with interests and talents beyond racing. Romain is currently studying Business and is serving an internship with the ASM Rugby club. He describes it as a “rich experience that allow me to open up on an other sport and help me to have another approach in terms of communication.”
The 25-year-old describes himself as “determined, pugnacious and daring,” and knows that “le Tour’s can be lost at every stage but the second half of the third week will be crucial.”
Here’s a look at his Tour de France Focus Izalco Max (56cm/L) SRAM RED® eTap® equipped machine. “The smoothness of shifting and the incredible intuitive shift logic” are what he likes the most about SRAM RED eTap.
