Five-time downhill world champion Sam Hill has revealed the kit he’ll be using in preparation for his annual ‘pink auction’. Both Hill and his Nukeproof Pulse race rig will receive a pink makeover ahead of this weekend’s Val di Sole mountain bike world cup.
After the race, the lairy one-off Team CRC/Nukeproof Pulse and matching Troy Lee Designs custom clothing will be sold on eBay, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Chain Reaction Cycles’ charity partner, Action Cancer.
The eBay auction is set to kick off tomorrow, Thursday 13 June. The winning bidder will receive a custom-painted, pink 2013 Nukeproof Pulse (medium size) complete with headset, rear shock and Nukeproof Sam Hill Signature seatpost, saddle, stem and bar. The riding kit is all provided by Troy Lee Designs and will include a jersey, pants and gloves, all size medium.
Hill said: “I’m really excited to continue my annual ‘pink auction’, and this year I’m delighted to auction off my frame and race kit in aid of Chain Reaction Cycles‘ nominated charity, Action Cancer. I hope as many of the fans as possible get behind this and raise plenty of cash for this great cause.”
