Not even a week ago Jordan Sarrou was crowned XC world champion. Today we met him on the Monte Tamaro course, where tomorrow he will race for the European championship, on his completely yellow BMC Fourstroke. The weight of the bike is 10.4kg including pedals, for a size L.
It’s an all new color for the bike, painted exclusively for him, and above an all new rainbow jersey.
