Izabela Yankova has revealed that she will be racing on Specialized bikes for the 2022 season.

In our Getting to Know interview Izabela said that she will be taking on the 2022 DH World Cup season onboard a Specialized Demo. 2021 saw Izabela take on her first year of Juniors on a Trek Session where she won four races, including the rainbow stripes at the Val di Sole World Championships. Izabela tied with Jackson Goldstone as the riders with the most World Cup and World Champs wins in 2021.

Izabela told Pinkbike: "I had the biggest chance in my career to join a new program of my most favorite bike brand Specialized. I'm just extremely happy, lucky and grateful to be supported by these amazing brands and people on a different level."

For those watching social media like a hawk over the race rumours season you may have already seen a clue as to what Izabela is riding in 2022.

 Well deserved! Ten years ago when I started watching the World Cup, I couldn't even imagine that one day I'll be rooting for a Bulgarian rider. Can't wait for the new season to start!

 Yahoo!!! Great news. I don't know if it's the same Specialized Gravity Team as Bruni, Iles & Grice are on but it's about time they added a lady to the mix.

 Will she be part of the specialized gravity team, or is it a separate program?

 For twenty years I have been waiting for a Bulgarian DH athlete to conquer the world podiums. And now I am even happier that this is a beautiful and intelligent Bulgarian girl. Let Isabella show them the traditions and spirit of the warlike and combative people of Bulgaria. I wish you many more gold medals and victories.
