Marco Aurelio Fontana: bronze medal in MTB... without saddle.

The London Olympic Games are over. Yesterday I've seen one of the most beautiful pages of this 2012 edition.
Marco Aurelio Fontana won the bronze medal in the men's mountain bike final, racing the last kilometers with no saddle as the seat post got broken.
Everyone with a minimal bike experience knows how hard it is to ride for kilometers with no saddle especially offroad as it becomes very hard to keep the bike balanced.
Props to Marco Aurelio Fontana: great performance!
In the video below you can listen to an interview to Marco Aurelio Fontana (in Italian), on the right side you can notice the bike with no saddle:
