Lance Armstrong custom Tour of Italy bicycle
Take a look at this beautiful custom bike that was made for Lance Armstrong for this year’s Tour of Italy!
The bike is a Trek Madone with custom graphics by Shepard Fairey. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I’m so glad that Lance decided to post these pics on his Twitter.
According to Lance, he actually received two custom Trek bikes for the Tour of Italy and you can see a picture of the other bike here:
Check out some more pictures below:
Armstrong’s mainstay of the race, his otherwise stock Madone 6.9, has been painted by Shepard Fairey to draw attention to the Livestrong foundation, the reason Armstrong has returned to racing, as well as pay homage to Italy’s rich architectural heritage. Meanwhile, Armstrong’s TTX displays a ‘lightspeed’ look by Kenny Scharf.
Both bikes will be auctioned at Nike’s Stages, a global travelling anti-cancer show organized to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation, when it visits New York on 2 October 2009.
