Vinokorouv rode a 52cm Tarmac to an Olympic gold medal (Courtesy)

Alexandre Vinokorouv came into the 2012 Olympic Road Race with
just a single teammate, Assan Bazayev. While no country had a
9-man squad, as in the Tour de France, there were nine squads with five a
piece: Spain, Italy, Great Britain, the United States, Belgium,
Australia, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands. At the end of the day, all
Vinokourov needed was a bike and the right moment.

Vinokourov rode an Olympic version of his Team Astana
Specialized S-Works Tarmac SL4. The only difference in the frame is the paint
— neon red, as for all of Specialized’s Olympic riders — and the
limited branding that Olympic rules dictate.

Similarly, the Corima wheels that Vino rode were a Carbon
Viva S front and a Carbon Aero+ MCC rear, with decaling stripped
down to a single logo on each side.

In addition to the number of logos, Olympic rules also
specify exactly how tall each logo can be.

The Carbon Aero+ MCC rear wheel lives up to its name with
generous serving of carbon fiber. Beyond the 3k/12k 47mm carbon rim, the wheel
has a carbon hub and 12 carbon spokes. The rear weighs a claimed 620g.

Vino’s front wheel is somewhat less exotic. The Carbon Viva
S uses a 12k carbon rim and 18 metal spokes for a 480g claimed weight

Vino uses a nearly complete SRAM 2012 Red group save the
cranks. His S-Works Tarmac SL4 has a 172.5mm S-Works crank with an integrated SRM
power meter.

The FSA Plasma Integrated Compact white handlebar and stem boasts
a 370g weight.
