Item Description

Christian's "Zalmoxis" Podium Equipe Diamondback Rally Bike

Christian's custom bike will be raced in this year’s Amgen Tour of California by Rally team rider Adam De Vos starting May 15th through May 22nd! You can watch how Adam is performing and cheer him on by accessing the Microsoft tour tracker app!

What really makes these bikes special is a signature of an UHCCF grant recipient on the top tube, featured prominently on each frame. Each bike also features a unique abstract butterfly design that is symbolic of UHCCF's logo.

The push behind Christian's Podium Equipe Diamondback Rally Bike was simple: to make the best road bike possible. Using input from the brightest minds and fastest professional racers on the planet, building a bike that delivers all-day speed. Using every tool: computer modeling, wind tunnel testing, and real world feedback, making it one of the most aerodynamic road bikes ever. Each frameset is hand built from hundreds of individual carbon pieces, each placed according to its flex and strength characteristics.

The attention to detail results in world class ride quality from a bike that performs exactly how you’d dream it up. The bike is forgiving where you want it, and stiff and responsive when you need it.

Christian is a previous grant recipient and since 2007, UHCCF has awarded more than 11,000 grants valued at over $29M to children and their families across the United States.

All auction proceeds to fund future UHCCF medical grants for children!
