British cyclist Chris Boardman won the Olympic gold medal in the men's 4,000 metres individual pursuit at Barcelona 1992. A full carbon-fibre framed bike manufactured by his company, Boardman Bikes, was ridden by Britain's Nicole Cooke when she won gold at Beijing 2008 in the women's road race. Four years later, at London 2012, Alistair Brownlee also used a Boardman Bike as he claimed the gold medal in the triathlon, as did brother Jonathan, who took the bronze in the same event.
