It’s no secret that one of my favorite annual sporting events is the Tour de France. For three weeks each summer it takes center stage in my life and I follow it religiously on a daily basis. In fact, it is one of two events that I dream about covering in person some day, the other being the Iditarod.
If you’ve also ever dreamed of witnessing Le Tour first hand, then you’ll definitely be interested in the contest that is currently being run by Cannondale. The bike company is giving away a week long trip to the Tour de France that will give the winner backstage access to Team Liquigas-Cannondale. They’ll get to ride along in the team car, hang out with the riders and generally live the life of one of the team mebers for a week. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ll also take home a SuperSix EVO bike as well. That’s a ride that has been called the “Best Bike in the World.”
To enter the contest, simply go to the Cannondale Facebook Page and hit the “Like” button. Then click on the Tour de France icon to access the contest page and fill out the online form. You’ll need to be a bit creative in order to win, as some of the questions ask you how you would help motivate the team, who your favorite rider is, and so on. Based on those answers, 25 finalists will be picked and they’ll be asked to submit a video entry to help the team get to know them better. From those videos a winner will be selected.
The contest ends on May 31st, one week from today. Good luck!
