Story Highlights

  • Trek Bicycles Australia are donating a Team Issue Astana Cycling Team Trek Madone 6.9 Pro for auction
  • All proceeds to go to Cancer Council South Australia

As part of our involvement at the Tour Down Under Trek Bicycles Australia had an Astana Cycling Team team issue Trek Madone 6.9 Pro on display on the stand at the Tour village.

It soon came to our attention that with the amount of interest in the bike and in Lance and the Livestrong charity we had a unique opportunity to be a part of the fund raising effort.

After speaking to the people at Livestrong we were lucky enough to have Lance come and sign the bike to make it an even more unique item of cycling history than what it already was.

Trek Bicycles Australia have now donated this bike to be auctioned, with the funds going to the Livestrong foundation who will then pass all of the money raised back to Cancer Council SA for cancer research in South Australia.

As an added bonus the South Australian Government has agreed to donate $3 for every $1 raised in the auction.

This is a fantastic result for the Livestrong foundation and for the cause of cancer research in Australia.

You can see the item and place a bid here. Bidding closes on January 31st, so if you are interested, you'd better get in there quick!

Trek Bicycles Australia is proud to be a part of this fund raising opportunity.
