Victor Koretzky is now wearing Specialized Factory Racing kit and his bike hides some new features
A couple of days ago the new incorporations of Martin Vidaurre and Victor Koretzky to Specialized Factory Racing were announced, but we were still wondering if the Frenchman would race with the Factory team or with Bora-hansgrohe, his team for road races. His latest social media post might give us the answer.

Given his last-minute signing and the fact that Koretzky was at Bora-hansgrohe's Spanish training camp, the Frenchman was unable to attend the presentation of the Specialized Factory Racing team with the rest of his teammates, but he has just done so in his own way and on social media.
Victor Koretzky has posted a picture training with the Specialized Factory Racing kit, the Bora-hansgrohe helmet and under his feet a Specialized Epic S-Works, the MTB with which he will race most of the XCO World Cup events in which he participates.
With this photo we understand that Koretzky will race with the Specialized Factory Racing team in MTB and we still have to know what his calendar will be, although he already let us know that the XCO World Championship in 2023 could be his main goal this year.

As a curiosity, in this image Koretzky rides the Epic S-Works that is currently in the catalog and not the prototype that we saw a few weeks ago in an image of Vidaurre, but what does have is the new SRAM rear derailleur that we saw during the last World Championships and that has not yet been presented.
That area is perfectly blurred, but its direct anchoring to the frame, without dropout, has created a very particular and recognizable aesthetic. Here you can see it in Nino Schurter's bike with which he won his tenth World Championships.
