The Tour de France is now less than two weeks away and cycling fans across the globe are gearing up for what promises to be another great race. One of the teams that promises to be well in the mix this year is Team Sky, who are led by top sprinter Mark Cavendish and GC contender Bradley Wiggins. The team is celebrating the start of the Tour with a unique contest that will give one lucky fan the opportunity to join them in Paris.
Team Sky is asking fans to design a t-shirt that captures the character of the squad in a unique and creative way. To that end, they’ve created a template that you can use to show off your artistic talents and impress a panel of judges. That panel will include Team Principal Dave Brailsford, as well as riders Cavendish, Michael Barry and Ben Swift. The winning design be produced and worn by the team and will be shared with the Sky’s large Twitter following and more than 150,000 Facebook fans. Better yet, the person who comes up with the best design will be flown to Paris to present the team with the shirt and will be awarded £500 (About $785). The official contest entry information and template, which can be downloaded in .pdf format by clicking here.
The contest runs through June 30th, which is the start of the race, and I’m told that it is open to entrants from anywhere. So grab the template, come up with a unique and interesting design and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org to be eligible to win. Who knows, you may find yourself in France for Le Tour this year!
If I had an ounce of artistic ability I’d be all over this contest. Not only does it sound fun, it would give me a chance to actually be in France for the race itself. One of these days I’ll actually provide coverage from the Tour, but for now you’ll have to settle for my usual updates from afar.
