CYCLING fans could get the chance to ride with Sir Bradley Wiggins - by buying his old Team Sky bus on eBay.
The tour bus previously used by Britain’s premier cycling collective Team Sky is up for sale on eBay, ending just before 11pm tonight. Current bid stands at £35,300.
The Fiat Eura Mobile Activa motorhome was reportedly sold to a private buyer two months ago who has now decided to cash in on a piece of British cycling history.
The eBay seller jefflewis7 describes the vehicle as; “a unique piece of sporting history” and refers to a list of riders printed on the side door that includes the names of Froome, Wiggins, whose wife hails from Shevington, and Geraint Thomas.
Among the specifications listed are six berths, a double bed, fridge and oven/grill, washroom with separate shower and electric flush toilet.
But the seller warns: “The ‘Team Sky’ and sponsors logos will be removed after the auction ends or when the vehicle is confirmed as sold.” There will, however, be an opportunity for the winning bidder for the bus, which has been in Team Sky’s service since their inception in 2010, to have their photo taken with the vehicle before the logos are removed - while the rider’s names can stay printed on the door.
