Olympic points race champion Marianne Vos has been given some special footwear to match her gold medal from Beijing.
The custom-made gold SH-R300 road shoes were a gift from Shimano and feature the firm’s Custom Fit technology.
The Dutch 21-year-old, who rides for the DSB team and this year became the first woman to hold world championship titles on the road, track and in cyclo-cross, was delighted with the present.
She said: “These gold road shoes are a reminder of a great race in Beijing. I hope to get some extra morale!”
