Robin Williams with his Zipp 2001

The bikes of Robin Williams go to auction

The extensive cycle collection of the late Robin Williams is now available to buy by auction, with funds raised from the sale going to the Challenged Athletes Foundation and Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

The extremely popular actor and comedian was a huge cycling fan, and as well as being a regular visitor to events including the Tour de France, was clearly a big fan of the technology and equipment too. In total, 87 different lots feature a wide range of road, time trial, mountain, touring and electric bikes, from a wide range of brands including Pinarello, Zipp, Softride, Trek, Kestrel, Casati, Orbea, Lemond, Giant, Ciocc, Merlin, Colnago, BMC and many more. We’ve selected just a few highlights in the images below.

The Williams’ family said “We hope these bikes will bring their new owners as much joy as riding them, and helping these causes, always brought him.”

The auction closes on 25th October 2016 with prices currently ranging from $650 up to $10,000. Take a look at the link below for the full online catalogue.

What do you do when you break your clavicle eight weeks before the biggest race of the year? You can give up, or… you can fight back.

Matt Russell at Kona 2016

Matt Russell – “I like to race. A lot…”

Matt Russell (USA) is one of the most prolific racers around.

When he starts from Dig Me Beach on Saturday it will be just two weeks since he finished third at IRONMAN Chattanooga to Marino Vanhoenacker (BEL).

An unconventional approach, perhaps – but one that Matt has confidence in. He spoke this week to Joanne Murphy (www.tritalkingsport.co.uk) about his approach to the race.
