PARK CITY, Utah - There are only two shops in the United States charged with building the $11,000 Orbea bikes to be used by the U.S. Olympic men's triathlon team. Competitive Cyclist, an online retailer based in Salt Lake City, Utah, is one. Recently, Orbea USA informed the team at Competitive Cyclist that they had been selected to build 4-time Olympian Hunter Kemper's bike. The team sprang to action.

"We're very honored to have the privilege of building Hunter's Olympic triathlon bike. To be entrusted with the assembly of what may amount to as the single most important bike in an Olympic triathlete's life underscores the quality of the people at Competitive Cyclist, and the faith a brand like Orbea has in them."
