Bike manufacturers Specialized will donate all of the money raised in the auction to the Matonyok Parents Trust Orphanage, which Tinkoff-Saxo visited on their trip to Tanzania.
Bids started at €3,000, although at the time of writing the leading bid stood at €8,800 – and that will almost certainly go up before the auction closes on Sunday.
Visit www.tinkoffsaxo.com/auction to place your bid before 8pm CET, Sunday.
