Dogma F8 - Collector Editions
with hand painted Rhino graphics
Unveiled at the start of Stage 13, Froome’s hand painted frame included striking rhino logos along with special flashes of yellow to mark his record setting time in the iconic race leader’s jersey. The rhino graphics were specially chosen as a nod to the British rider’s African heritage and his ambassadorship for the United for Wildlife organisation which unites the world’s leading wildlife charities in the battle against illegal animal poaching.
Froome has joined a star-studded list of ambassadors including David Beckham, Andy Murray, and Lewis Hamilton. Chris hopes his new bikes will help raise awareness about the many animals being hunted to near-extinction around the world. As a passionate campaigner about the subject, Chris is honored to support a cause very close to his heart.
In his words, “As a boy growing up in Kenya and South Africa, I lived with rhinos, elephants and other wildlife. These majestic creatures made a lasting impression on me and I'm thrilled to announce that I am becoming an ambassador for United for Wildlife. I've added a rhino to my bike to show my support."
"My mechanic Gary Blem came up with the idea of putting the rhino images on my frame, and I thought it was a great way to highlight their plight. There's a huge need to raise awareness about rhino and elephant poaching in Africa. If it continues at the rate that it is, we're going to lose these animals forever. If I want my child to enjoy wildlife the way I did, raising awareness for this cause is paramount. Rhinos are such powerful animals, and like me, they charge with their heads down (laughs). That's what I feel like when I'm going for it on my bike, so I thought it was a perfect symbol."
