To celebrate Gwen Jorgensen’s rise to the top, Specialized commissioned a custom-designed S-Works Amira for her to race on for the rest of the 2015 season. Jorgensen is in the midst of a historic run that includes 10-straight ITU World Triathlon Series victories. She’ll next compete at WTS Hamburg on July 18.
