Tour de France Pro Bike: Stage 12 winner Sammy Sanchez’s Olympic champ bike

Stage 12 winner Sammy Sanchez's Orbea

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Samuel Sanchez won Thursday’s stage on Luz-Ardiden in front of a hometown crowd (all the Basques that flock to the Pyrenean stages). He rode across the line on a spare bike after a crash earlier in the stage. Here’s the Orbea Orca that he started on.

In honor of his Beijing victory the bike received a custom paint job spotted with the number eight, a lucky number in China (the date of the opening ceremony was 8/8/08 at 8:08 pm). His bike also gets gold touches on the cables, chain, derailleur pulleys, skewers, bar tape and saddle.

Sanchez’s numbers:

Seat height: 77.9 cm
Reach from saddle nose to handlebar center: 59.7 cm
Crank arm length: 175 mm
Stem length: 14 cm
Handlebar width: 42 cm
