Factor is happy to be supporting the Live Life Foundation initiative to raise awareness and funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital neurological department in Melbourne. For the month of March, they are holding an auction which includes a very special Factor OSTRO VAM signed by four-time Tour de France champion, Chris Froome and 2022 Tour stage winner, Simon Clarke.
Racing for Change Edition
The frame is a special 2022 Tour de France edition designed for the Israel-Premier Tech team. The Racing for Change special edition was created to enhance awareness about the Israel-Premier Tech’s efforts to build a “Field of Dreams” bike center at the Community of Hope in Bugesera, Rwanda, as part of the team’s Racing for Change initiative.
As a result, the frame paint design celebrates the Rwandan landscape and the geometric precision of Rwandan Imigongo art. The frame with this stunning design was made in limited quantities, which means this may be the last chance you’ll ever have of buying one. It will certainly be the only one in the world signed by Chris Froome and Simon Clarke, both of whom raced their frames with this colorway to great success in the 2022 Tour de France.
Royal Children’s Hospital
The Royal Children’s Hospital provides high quality outpatient and inpatient services for the diagnosis and management of neurological disorders for young people. The team is made up of dedicated health professionals working to improve the health outcomes of infants, children and adolescents with disorders of the brain, nerves and muscles.
The experts in the neurological department are also involved with teaching undergraduate and postgraduate nursing, medical and allied health professionals to ensure the next generation of specialists. They have strong links with community-based groups including the Muscular Dystrophy Association and the Epilepsy Foundation.
