The Pros Closet is auctioning off one of Edvald Boasson Hagen’s spare Tour de France bikes to help a family with a child suffering from leukemia.

The bike being auctioned on eBay is a 55cm Team Sky Pinarello Dogma 60.1 Sky Rainforest Rescue Edition, “straight from the top of the team car,” according to Martin. The green-and-black machine was one of only 32 built in this color as part of a three-year partnership between Sky and the World Wildlife Fund intended to protect the Amazon rainforest.

Bids are being taken through November 21 at eBay. And look for other items to hit the auction block shortly, among them Mark Cavendish’s SRM system from the Tour, with his signature and all the data it collected.
