Just ascended after a refreshing swim with my bike. I actually wasn't aware that an MTB would float. Photo taken by Martin Paldan at WAT-A-Race.

Not all MTB's does float (mine didn't when it ended up in the harbour...). Über cool shot :)

No, you're right. It's only temporary until the frame fills up through the vent holes. The tyres are not nearly voluminous enough to displace 12-15 litres of water. BTW you should not forget to empty the frame again when you come home after the swim. Old pond water does lubricate well ;-)

Yes, Martin Paldan shot a lot of awesome photos at that race. If you are into adventure race or simply action photos, then you should check out www.martinpaldan.com
