Bringing the Discovery Channel team bike to life, January 10, 2005

"After all that," says Espinoza, "we parked the bike out across the street from the Trek factory in all of it's glory - the 2005 Discovery Channel Pro Cycling team Trek Madone 5.9. Except for the paint job (and team spec Chris King headset), the exact same bike is available at your local Trek dealer. Trek takes immense pride in not only hand-building every OCLV Carbon frame in our Wisconsin factory, but also in selling the same bikes we race - no custom bikes! If you ride a 58cm frame, y ou can ride the exact frame ridden by Lance; if it's a 62 cm, the same as George, and if you ride a 56cm, you'll be on the same bike that Eki rides!"
