Your chance to own one of these stunning special edition frames with signed race-wear and to help transform the life of somebody in a developing country.

We’ve had a fantastic 2012 season here at GT Factory Racing and we don’t take for granted the opportunities and support that we enjoy every day. We were inspired to talk to Hans Rey who is not only an extreme biking legend and former Mountain Bike World Champion but is the founder of Wheels 4 Life, a non-profit organization that provides bikes for people in developing countries in need of transportation to get to work or to school.

So, with a little help from our friends at theproscloset.com we’ve launched an ebay auction with 3 very special lots, all proceeds go to Wheels 4 Life.

These special edition GT Fury frames are part of a limited edition of 5 and are the actual frames used by Gee, Rach and Marc in the 2012 World Championships at Leogang. They are 100% carbon fibre and feature the red white and blue livery designed and produced especially for the three British riders.

Get ready to grab yourself a part of history.

You can donate to Wheels4life here http://www.wheels4life.org/ or get  yourself over to our auction! http://bit.ly/AthertonGT
The Pro's Closet (America’s premier cycling ebay store) are hosting the auction for free so every penny you bid will go directly into buying a bicycle for someone who really needs it.

GT Factory Racing
In 2012 siblings Dan, Gee and Rachel Atherton joined forces with GT Bicycles to form GT Factory Racing and secure GT rider Marc Beaumont as the 4th rider in the fastest overall team of the 2012 World Cup series. 2013 will see two new young riders join the team.

Wheels 4 Life
Wheels 4 Life was founded by Hans and Carmen Rey to give bicycles to people in need of transportation in Third World Countries. To date they have sponsored about 170 projects in 20 different countries. They have distributed approx. 4700 bicycles. Since bicycles are usually shared in the family and community, they have affected about 20,000 lives. They usually buy the bikes we give away, in the countries where they are needed, that saves much cost in shipping and logistics, custom hassles and it fuels the local economy.

The Pro's Closet

The Pro's Closet is the US's premier cycling eBay store - your source for buying and selling high quality bikes, components, clothing and accessories!

While living in his Volkswagen Bus and only the task of riding a bike on his to-do list, The Pro's Closet Founder Nick Martin began a simple mission: Sell all of his worldly possessions on eBay. Minus his bike and his bus, Nick sold everything.

Fast forward eight years and The Pro’s Closet has become the US premier eBay store, specializing in buying and selling high quality new and used bicycles.

Whether you are entering the used bicycle marketplace to sell your used bicycle or you are entering the marketplace to buy a used bicycle, The Pro’s Closet's goal is to provide you with the same level of customer service you would expect from your trusted local bike shop.
