Javier Gomez’s 70.3 World Championship winning Specialized Shiv

Gomez in Action.

For his 70.3 World Championship debut, Javier Gomez rode a Specialized Shiv for the non drafting event, rather than his usual Specialized Tarmac. But not just any Shiv, Specialized put together a custom painted Shiv for the ITU superstar, and he promptly rode it to win the 70.3 World Championship just a week after clinching the ITU World Championship in Edmonton.  The paint scheme was developed by Andrio Abero, and features a turbine engine wherein fuel is turned to thrust.
