partnered with the crew at The Pro’s Closet to bring to you the #IRideForPaul Mountain
Bike Memorabilia eBay Auction. This is your opportunity to own some unique
memorabilia from some of the sport’s top athletes.
“Over the years, we have watched in awe as Paul challenged what was possible on a
mountain bike. When we met him this year, it was obvious that he is not only an
exceptional athlete, but also and exceptional human, and that is why we are excited and
honored to help fund his recovery by hosting the #irideforpaul charity auctions,”
explains Jarrad Lokes, Director of Social Media and Photography at the Pro’s Closet.
All proceeds from the auction will go to benefit pro rider Paul Basagoitia who suffered a

dedication to his recovery is inspiring to everyone!

comes with an injury of this magnitude. Every little bit helps and people get the chance
to own a piece of mountain bike history. So it’s a win-win” explains Aaron Chase. “I went
