Item Description

"Galaxy" Theme - Felt FR Disc Bicycle

  • One-of-a-kind
  • Hand Painted
  • Inspired by UHCCF Grant Recipient Sarah, age 15
  • 56 cm ridden by Kyle Murphy
  • 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 Sarah. The universal design celebrates both Sarah’s passion for art and a certain space epic in a galaxy far away (the original trilogy, of course). Sarah loves painting and drawing because “it’s inspiring to feel like you can do anything with just a paintbrush,” so painter Brad put his own special touch on this frame, with blue, teal and red “Stardust” misted over a deep blue and violet ice pearl base.

Sarah’s advice for our cycling team headed to the Tour of California

“When you get to any part that’s hard, keep in mind that there are ill children whose day is much harder.  So, ride for them. My father is also a cyclist, and I know a little bit about what you might be going through as you ride through the mountains. When you feel like you might give up, just remember ‘faith, trust, and pixie dust’ (Tinker Belle) and ‘may the force be with you!’”
