Hi I'm Natalie and welcome to Talking Sport.
Today we are hearing about a mountain bike cyclist from France and learning the
word 'impressive'.
Julien Absalon is from France and is one of the best mountain bike cyclists in the
world.
So does it matter which bike he uses when he is competing?
Let's hear from BBC reporter Kieran Fox.
Listen for the word 'impressive' and listen for how long it takes to
make one of Julien Absalon's bikes.

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.
