"As the 2020 World Tour kicks off at the Tour Down Under, we are
once again celebrating with a new Down Under Collection. This
year's collection has been inspired by the speed and color of the
Australian Budgie, and we can all be very proud of this new
Collection for more than just the gorgeous Allez Sprint Disc,
helmets and apparel in blue, green and yellow."
"As this noble little bird, and much of Australia's wildlife,
suffers from devastating bushfires, Specialized is donating
$100,000 USD to WIRES Australian
Wildlife Rescue Organization, who are working tirelessly to
rescue and care for wildlife affected by the fires. It is estimated
that over a billion animals have been impacted by bushfires in
Australia just this season. In December alone there were over
20,000 calls to WIRES, and their volunteers attended over 3,300
rescues. With fires still burning, many more animals are in
desperate need of help"

As you can all appreciate, it has been an extremely devastating
time. There are still months of hot weather ahead, with dangers
still very imminent and years of rebuilding and recovery ahead.
This donation will go a long way to help with rescue and recovery
of Australian Wildlife.
