Martyn Ashton - Road Bike Party 12

Forget Rampage - until you've backflipped a $15k carbon roadbike on somebody's golf course, your membership in the Gnarly Old Boys Club is suspended.

Martyn Ashton takes the £10k carbon road bike used by Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins & Mark Cavendish for a ride with a difference. With a plan to push the limits of road biking as far as his lycra legs would dare, Martyn looked to get his ultimate ride out of the awesome Pinarello Dogma 2. This bike won the 2012 Tour de France - surely it deserves a Road Bike Party!
