It takes not just an impressive man, but an impressive machine to get gold. This is the Orbea Alma. It’s the bike that took French Olympic champion Julien Absalon to gold in Beijing. Absalon's bike can take 18 months from design to production. It will cost you the price of a small car and weighs just 10kg, but his team can put one together in under an hour.
