Ag2r Fac­tor One

Cycling Weekly - - Tech -

Get­ting third place in the Tour de France in your first year is a con­sid­er­able achieve­ment for a bike brand new to the World­tour. Ro­main Bardet only just clung onto his podium spot in last year’s Tour af­ter a lack­lus­tre fi­nal time trial, but it gave the bou­tique Bri­tish bike brand a fly­ing start.

Fac­tor, bought in 2015 by for­mer Tour green jer­sey Baden Cooke and his business part­ner Rob Gitelis, sup­plies the O2 climb­ing bike and the ONE aero bike to Ag2r. Both bikes fea­ture some high-tech up­grades thanks to spon­sor­ship from Ceram­ic­speed.
