Chattanooga, TN (September 6, 2017) – Quintana Roo (QR) today launched an online auction of its Fit Series entry-level triathlon bike, the Kilo Race to support the OneStar Foundation’s Rebuild Texas Fund established through a $36 million contribution from the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation. The Fund will focus on a long-term vision for recovery from Hurricane Harvey of the affected areas along the Texas coast. The auction will be hosted by eBay Auction Services from Sept. 6 through Saturday, Sept. 16 at 1:46 PM (Eastern) with bids starting at $1,000. Bid now.

The Kilo Race is a member of the Quintana Roo Fit Series and was developed specifically for the beginner- to intermediate-level triathlete. With an MSRP of $3,000, it has a woven 12K carbon frame, F.I.S.T. technology, carbon aero fork and seat post, and its fit and comfort translates into a fast and happy rider.

The winning bidder will be able to select the size that best fits them from small to extra-large, and the bike will be shipped directly to the winner or to their local QR retailer/dealer.

“We have such wonderful customers in Texas, and we wanted to do something to help them and the communities that were hit so hard by Hurricane Harvey,” said American Bicycle Group president Peter Hurley. “We looked around for what we believed to be an impactful opportunity to assist and chose the Rebuild Texas Fund. The Fund will take a ‘big picture’ approach since long-term help will be necessary for the battered communities, and the Fund is managed by OneStar Foundation and supported by the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation. We thought it was a solid choice.”

Everyone wishing to support the Rebuild Texas Fund and bid on the Kilo Race should log onto Ebay Auction Services and bid now. The auction is open.
