Rapha cycling memorabilia auction hopes to raise $394,000

Rapha, a British-based cycling clothing company, will auction an assortment of memorabilia in its Bordeaux-Paris 2013 Challenge charity auction, which will be held through eBay until September 17.

Comprising 41 lots, it is hoped the auction will raise £250,000 ($394,000) for Ambitious about Autism, with company founder Simon Mottram's son suffering with the disability.

Among the items on offer are an Omega Pharma jersey signed by Mark Cavendish, Bradley Wiggins' Team Sky jerseys and Andy Hampsten's white jersey from the 1986 Tour de France, which is stained with foie gras following a food fight between Hampsten's La Vie Claire teammates.

In October 2012, the gold throne on which Bradley Wiggins celebrated his Olympic victory was offered at auction for $24,000, but failed to meet its estimate.
