Silence-Lotto professional Nick Gates is having his final race in Townsville, Australia, this Saturday, November 8, followed by an auction that includes Cadel Evans's Tour de France bike. The auction will be part of the launch of the Nick Gates Foundation, which is designed to help aspiring young cyclists.
The auction will be part of a Gala dinner at Jupiters Casino Townsville and see precious prizes, like some unique signed jerseys. But Evans's bike will be the big ticket item for the evening. Evans has donated the bike that propelled him to second place in Paris in July. It is the real deal - a Ridley Helium with full Campagnolo components. Anyone can bid by emailing Nick Gates on email@example.com. All funds raised will go to the Foundation.
Superstars of Australian cycling are racing in the Nick Gates Foundation Classic including Evans, Robbie McEwen, Henk Vogels, Baden Cooke and Matthew Lloyd. There are also corporate events and races for kids.
