BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — BMC Switzerland and VeloNews are running a sweepstakes that will award a Taylor Phinney hand-painted BMC Teammachine SLR01 frame, to raise awareness of the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's. The one-of-a-kind frame will be featured on the cover of the VeloNews 2016 Buyer's Guide issue, out this month.

"When we became aware of Taylor's growing passion for art, we immediately saw a unique opportunity to showcase his talents and work to benefit his father's nonprofit, the Davis Phinney Foundation," said Chris McLaren, the managing director of BMC North America. "With VeloNews' dedicated and engaged fan base of riders, this sweepstakes promises to raise awareness of Parkinson's disease and the important work done by the Davis Phinney Foundation to help people live well today."

John Bradley, the editor-in-chief of VeloNews, said, "Taylor is one of the most exciting riders around. "Buyer's Guide issues, while they're full of great gear, don't always offer a lot of personality. We viewed this as an opportunity to put him on the cover, with a frame that he hand-painted, creating something very unique. We're proud to be using that to help raise awareness of Parkinson's disease."

The sweepstakes launched Thursday at All entries must be received by May 18 to be eligible to win. A winner will be chosen on May 30.
