Endurance cyclist Chris Hall to raffle one-off custom Cervélo for The Pace Centre and Movember


Chris Hall, endurance cyclist and graphic designer created the design in collaboration with Cervélo and Gun Control Custom Paint.

A special, one-off Cervélo S3 designed by the endurance cyclist Chris Hall is to be raffled off for charity throughout December in aid of The Pace Centre and Movember.

Having just ridden 107 miles everyday during the 107th Edition of the Tour De France, Chris is hoping to top up the £12,455.00 already raised during his epic 20 day ride, by giving away the custom Cervélo he designed and painted himself just days after his ride finished.

No stranger to ultra-endurance challenges, Chris is a seasoned racer who regularly competes in the National 24hour Time Trial competitions, and in 2017 Chris rode 107km every day for 107 days raising money for The Pace Centre. To celebrate the raffle, Chris intends to complete a ‘Trenching’ Challenge, descending 91 laps of Box Hill, all before the giveaway closes on Christmas Eve. By buying a ticket in support of his efforts, you can be in with a chance of winning the stunning one-off bike.

Trenching – like an everesting challenge – takes it’s name from the Mariana Trench, which is 11,034 meters deep. Chris will descend the same amount of metres in 91 back-to-back laps of the iconic Box Hill.

The bike itself is a custom painted Cervélo S3 carbon frame has been lovingly painted by hand by Chris himself, then prepared and finished professionally by Gun Control Custom Paint.

Chris experimented with a mix of different techniques, before applying the freehand design to the frame, creating a marbled effect with a mix of metallic greys, whites and golds.

Having already raised £12,455.00 on his recent adventure, Chris hopes the breathtaking, one-off bike will double his target, in the run up to Christmas. With all proceeds being split between The Pace Centre, a charity Chris has supported since 2016 and Men’s Health Charity, Movember.

The raffle is open worldwide and the bike will be shipped to whoever the winner is. If they would like to collect the bike in person, Chris will also meet them at Gun Control Custom Paint where the bike is currently on display.

Chris said ‘A massive thank you to Cervélo for providing the frame set and Parcours for providing the wheels. Also a massive thank you to Gun Control Custom Paint, who helped to prepare and finish the frame, for all their advice and trusting in me to produce something pretty special. Both The Pace Centre and Movember do incredible work in helping transform and change people’s lives for the better and hopefully this bike will also help them to continue to do the incredible work they do but also help inspire someone to head out and take on their own challenges and adventures on it.’
