One of the most common publications of a cycling team is the one about the bicycle on which they compete. The 2020 season has been atypical in many ways due to extra-sporting issues and circumstances, but from an eminently sporting perspective also due to the involvement of the different sporting structures of the Contador Foundation in the development of a new bicycle brand promoted by Alberto Contador and Ivan Basso.
Officially presented at the end of September, the new AURUM Bikes have been the frames with which the Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team has competed during this 2020.
