Much of New South Wales and Queensland Australia is still burning, causing untold destruction to the habitats of pretty much all land-dwelling wildlife, including the iconic Australian Budgie. Doing their bit to help protect Australia’s wildlife, Specialized have donated $100,000 USD to WIRES Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization, who are working tirelessly to rescue and care for wildlife affected by the fires. In conjunction with this considerable donation, Specialized are launching their Australian Budgie-inspired Down Under Collection in the run up to the Tour Down Under.
Specialized Down Under Collection for Road Cycling
The Specialized Down Under Collection comprises an Allez Sprint Disc, Peter Sagan’s choice of ride at the 2019 Down Under Classic criterium, Evade and Prevail helmets, S-Works 7 Shoes, socks and a cap, all in the same Australian Budgie-inspired blue and yellow colorways.
The alloy Allez Sprint Disc will see action under the best riders in the world at the Schwalbe Classic with riders from Deceuninck – Quick-Step and BORA – hansgrohe, including sprinter Sam Bennett from Deceuninck – Quick-Step and Jay McCarthy for BORA – hansgrohe.
