Cool Rally UHC Bikes
"Music" Theme - Felt FR Disc Bicycle
- Hand Painted
- Inspired by UHCCF Grant Recipient Chloe, age 10
- 56 cm ridden by Nigel Ellsay
- Raced by Rally UHC Cycling at the Amgen Tour of California, May 12-18, 2019.
This bike is in the fleet of one-of-a-kind Felt FR Disc bicycles that will be raced by Rally UHC Cycling at the 2019 Amgen Tour of California and now auctioned to benefit the UHCCF. Six brave young UHCCF grant recipients were surveyed to provide inspiration for each bike’s novel identity. See the bikes racing live in California on NBC Sports Network or via the Tour Tracker, and don’t miss your chance to own one of these exceptional, hand-painted Felt FR Disc race bicycles!
The designs are a collaboration between Rally UHC Cycling’s creative team--Emily SaintOnge and Sam Wiebe--and are hand-painted by Brad Galvin at Dirt Designs Graphic using premium Axalta paints and clear coat.
Each bike is outfitted with high-end race componentry – the same equipment used by the Rally UHC Cycling pros.
This bike's inspiration came from UHCCF Grant Recipient Chloe, who told us, “I want to be a famous singer when I grow up, because singing makes me feel good inside,” we wanted to make a bike with rhythm. This painterly design embodies sound itself, using the art of master abstract artist Wassily Kandinsky as inspiration. Kandinsky spent a lifetime visualizing music in his art, and his unique aesthetic shines through on this rideable canvas.
Chloe’s advice for the team headed to the Tour of California:
“Drink lots of water and please be safe.”
