A Note from Fatty: If you can see where I’m headed just by looking at the pictures below, feel free to go to this page to donate without further ado.

Guys, I have something I want to show you. This:


Honestly, I just don’t have many words that can do justice to this bike, so let me instead show you another picture:


This is the Cervelo S5 Aero Road Bike, Team MTN-Qhubeka edition, completely outfitted with ENVE wheels and components

And it is beautiful. Like, unbelievably beautiful.

And my friends at ENVE Composites — a proud sponsor of Team MTN-Qhubeka, are donating one of these incredible bikes as a grand prize in the Grand Slam for Kenya

Equipped with ENVE wheels, ROTOR rings, cranks and power meters, KMC chains, Shimano Dura-ace Di2 drivetrain and brakes, Ceramic Speed bearings and a Sella Italia saddles, this is, without question, the most exclusive, amazing bike I have ever had in a contest. 

It is just like the bikes the pros in Team MTN-Qhubeka rode, with the exception that ENVE will also provide the cockpit for the bike.

In other words, the bike we’re giving away as part of the Grand Slam for Kenya will be nicer than the ones the pros rode.

How does that make you feel? A little bit like this? 


Friends and Family

It  makes perfect sense to have this bike as a prize in Grand Slam for Kenya. After all, Qhubeka is World Bicycle Relief’s program in South Africa that provides bicycles to people in need.

Check out the Thompsons — WBR Ambassadors and Friends of Fatty — riding with Team Principal Doug Ryder, Polka-Dot Jersey phenom Daniel Teklehaimanot, and team honcho Tyler Farrar:


It’s been an amazing month, both for the Tour de France and for World Bicycle Relief. 


I don’t think there’s ever been a question of whether the cause is good enough to warrant donating in the Grand Slam for Kenya.

But if there’s ever been a question of whether the prizes in the Grand Slam for Kenya warrant making a donation…well, I think that question has now been definitively answered. 

Click here to donate. And good luck!

PS: On a personal note, I want to express huge thanks to ENVE for providing this bike. Honestly, I’m overwhelmed.

    Gah! That is an amazing bike. You’ve outdone yourself, Elden. Donation made — best wishes WBR and so happy to be reaching Kenya this year.

    Hmmm…maybe I should donate a bit more…

    How am I ever going to decide which bike I want when my name is chosen? Too many choices. Absolutely amazing, Fatty, how much you have convinced companies to donate for WBR!!!

    Heat waves cutting through the sun… Wowzers, Chief F. A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Thank you for introducing this organization several years ago, I can’t believe how much they’ve grown! I am honored to be a part of their mission donating with FOF and directly. This year feels even more personal as I have visited Kenya. Another set of wheels in the field…and matched!

    Thanks for the shout out Elden. To clarify, when you said we “rode with” the MTN Qhubeka folks, what really happened is that we left the parking lot at the same time. :)
    Your prizes are so amazing that I am donating to your fundraising page instead of ours for our anniversary present this year.
    Take good care of Dave in Leadville. I told him not to come home if he didn’t ride a sub 9, but I don’t mean it.
    Hopefully next year’s schedule won’t conflict with school for me.

    Hey fatty, have you considered extending the contest? I can’t help but feel that another week or so might allow you to get thousands more (my understanding is that the contest ends tomorrow ? midnight)

    I knew this prize was coming, I watched every stage of the Tour de France, and yet I’m still stunned at how gorgeous this bike is!

    Wow. Just wow.

    I might have to rethink my decision to decline any prize I might win (in the unlikely event that I do)

    @Miles, if you decline it in my direction, I’ll grant you full visiting rights.

    Uhm, yeah…I ‘need’ a new mt bike pretty bad…but I ‘WANT’ this bike! OMG…Fatty, you are AWESOME!

    Donation made as well. The Rockwell Relay race report was what got me to donate this year. The prizes are just a bonus.

    If I get first choice…

    Two more bikes going out. Nothing better. Thanks to all.

    Awesome, fabulous cause, and amazing work that you and Lisa do for WBR, Fatty. Donation made!

    I haven’t received my winning email yet. I’m getting worried that my internet is down or something. Better call the Geek Squad and have it serviced.

    Grand Slam for Kenya entries now accepted through August 6th, drawing August 11th. Let’s keep those wheels spinning!

    Thanks! (I cancelled the service call with my internet provider.)
