Athletes are giving back to the community, to the people who have helped them achieve their dreams.

Many amateurs and professionals alike are working hard to use their strength and talents to take on cycle challenges, run training camps and auction off their treasured kit to support charitable and community efforts.

“I loved teaming up with my partners on this project. The bike is absolutely beautiful and I look forward to putting it up for charity auction later this year. " - Gwen Jorgensen

Multi World Triathlon champion, Gwen Jorgensen has been working closely with her sponsors, Specialized Bikes, to create a unique and custom build model of the Amira.

The bike features HED Stinger 3 wheels, SRAM cranks and a Di2 Shimano group-set. The Amira has been Jorgensen’s choice ride since 2012 because of its lightweight carbon frame, tapered head tube and responsive handling.

The bike is ready in time for the World Triathlon Series round in Leeds this weekend, where it will be displayed in the Millennium Square after the Elite women's category.

After the Hamburg round of the WTS, Jorgensen will be putting the bike up for auction where all the proceeds will be going to charity.

It'll be hard for Gwen to part with such a beautiful and personal bike, but it's more important for Gwen to give back to the community and to the people that have helped her become a World Champion.
