Marie-Hélène Prémont's 2004 Bikes
Robert Maheu of Oryx (Procycle) provided the photo and text about the Canadian champions' 2004 rides
For 2004 Marie-Hélène's sponsor ORYX has provided her with two bikes following different themes. One of her bikes is her Canadian bike which highlights her Canadian champion status and the other is her snake bike which is her Chinese astrology sign.
Marie-Hélène likes the colour blue so the designers at ORYX developed a blue (especially for her) that picks up the blueish tint of the XTR cranks. View these bikes, on display at the Salon Info-Vélo in Québec city this weekend. Marie-Hélène will be there Saturday to sign autographs.
A bit about the bikes: Both of the bikes are constructed using 7005-T6 aluminium frame with carbon seatstays, Raceface seatposts and stems, carbon fiber flat handlebars (Marie-Hélène's preference), Marzocchi Marathon SL forks and full XTR groups. The bikes in the photo do not have the XTR wheelsets but they will have them shortly.
