Our good friends Cancer Voices SA are auctioning a Lance Armstrong bike for charity.
Don't miss this opportunity to own a beautifully crafted Trek Madone bike which has been kindly donated by Bicycles Express in Adelaide South Australia and has bee personally signed by cycling legend and 7 time Tour de France winner, Lance
This 2010 LIVESTRONG branded Trek Madone, the same frame as the one raced by Armstrong in this year's Tour Down Under, is the only autographed bicycle of its kind currently available online in the world. The bicycle is part of Trek's unique Project One made-to-order series, and is hand painted in the 1274 colour scheme which was especially designed for Armstrong's return to racing in 2009.
Signed by Armstrong when he was in Adelaide for the 2010 Tour Down Under, the bicycle has been donated by Bicycle Express, Australia's largest and most awarded bike store, to raise funds for a joint project for the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation and advocacy group Cancer Voices SA.
This bicycle is valued at AUD$15,500 without the signature, and proceeds from this sale will go towards establishing an information kiosk to give those treated for cancer at the Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer immediate computer access to the best and most comprehensive information about their condition.
The 2010 Trek Madone 6.9 Project One "1274" bike was especially designed for Armstrong's return, with its "1274" colour scheme representing the number of days Armstrong was retired before making his comeback in Adelaide in 2009. The colour scheme also features the number "27.5" which represents the number of million people worldwide who lost their battle with cancer during the time Lance was retired.
Key features of the bike include:
