Sponsored Athlete Vlad Sabau's Annual Charity Bike Auction Happening Now!

After the loss of his mother to Breast Cancer, Vlad has dedicated his his life to bringing support to those fighting cancer and their families. This annual Charity Auction brings financial freedom to people in the depths of their struggle. Your donation boosts morale and brings hope to cancer patients and their families.

Here is some information from Vlad about the Auction and how you can participate:

Dear friends,

Waiting time is over, charity time is here!

The charity program I am working and fighting for is very alive and I do my best to help as much as possible. If you had cancer or someone in your family had, you know how important is the moral support. I think that for those without a good financial situation is even harder. Especially when you need to be careful at some things that cost.

As always all the cash got from this auction will be donated for charity cancer cases. With my family we are finding pretty often specific cases of people with cancer that need money, because most of them don’t get any help from any kind of foundations and their financial situation isn’t quite good.

The auction will take place on my website as the previous 4 years because like this high selling commissions from auction websites will be avoided and more money will be available for charity.

This bike is also signed by Manuel Fumic, Henrique Avancini and Maxime Marotte /Cannondale Factory Racing who doesn’t need any kind of presentation so it’s both a race ready machine or highly collectible.

Why the bike is pink?

You might know that the pink ribbon is an international symbol of breast cancer awareness. Pink ribbons and the color pink in general, identify the wearer or promoter with the breast cancer brand and express moral support for women with breast cancer.

The color pink is feminine Considered in modern Western countries. It evokes traditional feminine gender roles, caring for other people, being beautiful, being good, and being cooperative.

The pink ribbon represents the fight against breast cancer, hope for the future, and the charitable goodness of people and businesses that publicly support the breast cancer movement. It is Intended to evoke solidarity with women who currently have breast cancer.

After having a terrible incident in my family that ended with the loss of my mother I’ve decided to get much more involved in this fight. In the 2011 racing season I had a lot of pink bike parts and so some pink argyle socks to express my moral support, but then I told myself that I can do more so I got involved pro active and this is the 6th pink bike auctioned.


On July 18th I will announce the winner.
