Despite being a sport won by individuals, cycling is very much a team sport and despite being a sport bound by sponsorships, brands and PR companies, those involved in cycling will always collectively come together in times of need.

Currently, in Australia, the men's and women's seasons are beginning with the Tour Down Under but this is happening in the midst of disaster.

It is a country dealing with vast wildfires that have devastated huge parts of the country, leaving a trail of destruction that has claimed the lives of 28 people, around 500 million animals and left thousands homeless.

Aware of this, cycling clothing manufacturer Katusha has pulled together the collectiveness of the cycling community to help create an online auction in aid of bushfire relief, with all proceeds going to the New South Wales rural fire service.

Alongside the week of the race, us fans will have the opportunity to bid on signed jerseys of some of the world's best riders.

Up for grabs will be a rainbow jersey from World Champion Mads Pedersen, a European Champion's jersey signed by Elia Viviani, a jersey signed by the women's Trek-Segafredo squad and an AG2R La Mondiale jersey provided by Romain Bardet, among many more.

All you have to do is visit this website and place a bid on the jersey you would most like to own.

Once the men's Tour Down Under finishes on 18th January, the highest bidders will win their jerseys and have them sent out in the post.
