| XC World Champion Christoph Sauser and Specialized Factory MTB Team to Ride ROTOR Q-Rings
ROTOR Bike Components has become the official chainring sponsor of the Specialized Factory MTB Team for 2009. Led by current Marathon World Champion Christoph Sauser, Specialized Factory is one of the top MTB pro teams in the world.
Sauser, well known for his technical know-how and attention to detail, took notice of the ROTOR Q-Rings in late 2008. After testing a set of the oval chainrings, Sauser commented, “I immediately felt the difference in the traction and instantly knew I wanted to use them in competition. This is likely one of the most technologically advanced bicycle components I have ever tested.”
The Specialized Factory Team boasts past and present world champions, including Sauser, Rebecca Rusch and Conrad Stoltz, as well as Lene Byberg and Todd Wells. ROTOR will supply the team with Special Edition Red MTB 2×9 Q-Rings (40-27), specifically designed to fit the Specialized S-Works MTB crankset, as well as the special triple set frequently used by the team on their Epic/Era and Stumpjumper bikes.
“We’re really excited to work with ROTOR this year, and the feedback from all of our athletes has been nothing but positive. They all agree that Q-Rings are a real performance advantage. Between our Epic/Era Brain technology and ROTOR’s Q-Ring innovation, we’re in a great position to win this year,” said Bobby Behan, Specialized Sports Marketing Manager for MTB and Triathlon.
With this sponsorship agreement, ROTOR has agreed to provide engineering knowledge and resources for biomechanical pedalling improvements and to develop innovative solutions for mountain bike components.
