Item Description

"Greece" Theme - Felt FR Disc Bicycle

  • One-of-a-kind
  • Hand Painted
  • Inspired by UHCCF Grant Recipient Laura, age 17
  • 54 cm ridden by Emerson Oronte
  • 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 Laura. This intricate design was inspired by the beautiful terracotta pottery of ancient Greece, Laura’s favorite country. Her love of Greece comes from “a good childhood memory”, so the design team reached deep into the past to produce a grand, authentic motif inspired by Greece’s Iron Age pottery masterpieces. Bronze metallic and black with gold pearl paint make this frame shine in the peloton.

Laura’s advice for the team headed to the Tour of California:

“Enjoy the experience! Live it up! Bike how you want to remember being.”
