The framed top signed by Ivan Basso is the Liquigas 2009 team kit.  Ivan Basso won the Giro d'Italia in 2006 and 2010 and was 4th in the Giro and the Vuelta in 2009.

Ivan Basso is one of the worlds greatest climbers.  This top is being auctioned to raise money for an Everesting Cycle Challenge event with donations and auction proceeds made to charities supporting children and young adults with heart disorders.  

Everesting is a cycling challenge involving cycling up and down the same hill as many times non stop as it takes to reach the height of Everest - 8,848m.  I Everested on the Coulport climb near Glasgow and it took me 63 reps and 12 hours 48 minutes. 

The Everesting took place on 11 July and a new Scottish record was set.  The fundrasing target is £8,848 and the proceeds of this auction will help me each the target..The link with more details is here

The top was kindly donated by Billy Bilsland Cycles, Glasgow.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
