The auction began on November 6th and runs through Highland's closing day, Saturday, November 16th, where riders will be able to bid on site during the park's S'Ender Bash, which wraps up the 2013 season.
Auction items include mountain bike memorabilia from top athletes, including: Brett Rheeder’s 2013 X-Games Gold full face helmet, Aaron Chase’s 2013 Red Bull half shell helmet, Cam McCaul’s Rampage goggles, Darren Berrecloth/Aaron Chase signed Red Bull hat and much more!
All proceeds will go to support Wings for Life’s mission to find a cure for spinal cord injuries through funding world-class scientific research and clinical trials around the globe aimed at healing the injured spinal cord.
"As cyclists, we knowingly put ourselves at the risk of injury with every pedal stroke. It can happen to any of us. That is why we are both excited and honored to align ourselves with such high caliber athletes and help Wings For Life and their commitment to cutting-edge spinal cord research" explains Nick Martin, Founder of The Pro's Closet.
"As an athlete that had a very serious spinal cord injury I am honored to throw my Red Bull helmet into the auction pool! Wings for Life is an amazing charity doing great things for spinal cord research and Highland is my second home so of course I support this rad auction! I even plan on bidding on a few items to add to my personal office décor, I’ve got my eye on Rheeder’s helmet” Aaron Chase explains.
