Am I the only one still waiting for their free energy gel sample? I signed up weeks ago, got an email saying further instructions would follow, then nothing.

Pretty pissed off really - won't be buying their products.

Hi, we are very sorry about this and contacted our web team, it appears that some free gel registration emails have been re-directed to junk mail. The issue and a different way to register for Free Gels is going to be implemented.

If you can send a quick email to the bunker [at] otesports.co.uk referencing road.cc message we will ensure you get your free Gel.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Same here registered and everything followed the instructions ,the email had went into spam but even after following it didn't receive the free gel it's a pity as I like the look of the OTE stuff.

I noticed this when going through my emails this morning, I spotted the original email from them and realised that I hadn't received the free sample. I briefly considered being offended or annoyed but then remembered that it was only a free sample of an energy gel and I had done nothing for it.

That said, it doesn't paint a great picture of the company if numerous people have been jibbed out of getting the promised free samples but at least Peter above has spotted there is a problem and is appearing to try and rectify it, so perhaps the pitchforks and torches can rest easy for now.

On a (semi) related note, I recently signed up for the mailing list at BrokenRidersuk.com and received a bunch of free stickers a couple of days later. I do like free stickers. And badges. I'm easily bribed.

Yeah I received mine after an email which was replied to by Shaun (on a Saturday night) packaging looks good like the 2 tears one for gulp and one for sip looks larger than other gels I have used but will wait and see how it tastes as some are really sickly

I got mine, lemon and lime, I really liked it, for comparison, I'm usually a High 5 user and hate zip vit, theirs was nice, light and fruity...wish I had took 2, as I took it too early and had a hard last half hour!
