Raffy Cuevas’ Orbea Ordu 2013 | In[FOCUS] | Bike Edition

“Developed slowly, to go fast”. Oh, we waited a whole damn lot to get our hands on this bike. Before Crowie’s controversial switch from Orbea to Specialized, he won the Ironman World Championships using an Orbea Ordu, twice. News is, he couldn’t wait for Orbea’s new time trial bike. Our verdict? He should have.

Every now and then, we’ll feature amazing rides from various Filipino elites and age-groupers. For the In[FOCUS] Bike Edition opening salvo, the honor goes to Raffy Cuevas of Team PLDT/Bike King, and his 2013 Orbea Ordu GDi2.

Enjoy the ride!
