Can You Draw A Bike In 15 Seconds? | GCN Asks The Pros At The Giro d’Italia


– The 2018 Giro d’Italia
has been brutally hard and it’s not even over yet. It takes a huge physical,
mental, and emotional toll out of the riders so we
thought what better time to give them an exam than
with just one week to go? So we asked them to draw a bike. Not a difficult task you might think but it’s surprising how hard it is to draw a bike in just 15 seconds. We’re gonna give you 15
seconds, Tom to draw a bike and I’m gonna count you in.
– Okay. – Don’t jump the gun, you ready? – Yeah.
– Three, two, one, and go. (groovy instrumental music) Strong, I mean you got
wheels that’s a good start. Three, two, one, and stop. Handlebars, that’s already a
big improvement on many bikes. – Okay. (laughs)
– And pedals which a bike will not work without pedals. – No, I tried it 15 seconds is not a lot. (laughs) – It’s very good. Three, two, one, go. (groovy instrumental music) (laughs) Oh it’s a tandem. Ten seconds. (laughs) Three, two, one, stop. (all laugh)
It’s beautiful. (laughs) Look at that, did you see it properly? Let’s look through this. That is a massive chain ring because you’re gonna go so
fast in the time trial tomorrow. That’s like a 70 chain ring. On your marks, set, three, two, one, go. (groovy music)
Oh, strong start. Ten seconds.
– I’m trying to get this. – Three, two, one, and stop. It’s got two wheels, that’s already a win. Don’t worry, we won’t tell your mechanic that that’s what you
think bikes look like. You ready?
– Yeah. – Three, two, one, go. (groovy instrumental music) My god, he’s so quick. You’ve another like three
seconds, two, one, stop. Jeez that’s amazing. He’s got a speed trail here. Ten seconds flat, that’s amazing. Three, two, one, and you’re off. Starting with a crossbar, interesting. Weird triangle, nice. (groovy instrumental music) Ten seconds, three, two, one, time’s up. Beautiful, beautiful, you’ve got pedals. A lot of people do not
have pedals on their bike which is awkward when you wanna ride it. (speaks foreign language) (groovy instrumental music) (both speak foreign language) Three, two, one, beep! (groovy instrumental music) Looking good, looking
good, oh man he’s quick. The boy is quick. Ten seconds, three, two, one, stop. Nice work, it’s tiny and
it’s perfectly formed. This guy he’s got arrow
bars, he’s got a chain ring. He’s got pedals, he’s got a drive chain. He’s got a rear mech hanger,
two wheels, and a saddle. This is the most complete
bike we have in 15 seconds. Congratulations. Three, two, one, go. Oh you totally counted a bit
there but we’ll let you off. – [Man] I need all the help I can get. – (laughs) Five seconds.
(groovy instrumental music) (both laugh)
Ten seconds. Three, two, one, and stop. – Kind of a charcoal. (speaks foreign language) (groovy instrumental music) (speaks foreign language) – Oh, it’s beautiful. I think that’s amazing. It has an arrow handlebar. – Yeah, til today. 15 seconds is not enough to do it, no? – I agree, I agree, I think
it’s very good for 15 seconds. – You can see that I’m a
scientist because that. I’m not an artist. – No but you’re very good at cycling. Three, two, one, go. (groovy instrumental music) Starting strong with a frame which is an unusual way to start. A lot of people start with the wheels. (groovy instrumental music) Ten, three, two, one, stop. Good work. Oh he’s got a bike and
a person in 15 seconds. That’s insane. Well there ya go. As it turns out that it’s
actually quite hard to draw an entire bike in 15 seconds
especially under pressure. If you’d like to see another
