Mark Cavendish’s Specialized McLaren Venge – first look

BikeRadar checks out Specialized's latest before its race debut

In advance of Milan-San Remo on Saturday – and our first ride of it later this weekend – BikeRadar took a closer look at the latest string to Specialized’s bow – the McLaren Venge.


And not just any McLaren Venge, but the one Mark Cavendish will be riding in pursuit of his second victory at Italy’s biggest one day race.

He will be riding the version with Shimano Dura Ace groupset – the one available in the UK from late September. The standard S-Works Venge, available in the UK from the end of May, will also have Dura Ace, plus a DI2 version. The US models will be available at the same time, but with SRAM Red groupset.


Check back on Sunday evening for our first ride of the bike.
