Grand Tour season is upon is! The Giro d'Italia starts on Friday with a team time trial around the streets of one of Italy's best known cities, erm, Belfast. And the road.cc Fantasy Giro with Wiggle is now open for you to pick a team. There are great prizes to be won, with not one but two bikes up for grabs! And you could win just by picking a team!
First prize: A Verenti Insight 0.3 road bike worth £1,200!
If you're top dog come the end of the road in Trieste then you'll be walking away with a Verenti Insight 0.3 worth £1,200. It features a high modulus carbon frame, a carbon bladed fork, a Shimano 105 10-speed groupset and Fulcrum wheels. On top of that you get a free Lifeline advanced kit with bottle cages, water bottles, lights, a track pump and tools. Not bad!
Second prize: A Verenti Defense Sora road bike worth £600!
Even if you don't come first you could still be riding away in style. Second place gets a Verenti Defense road bike that looks a great option for year-round UK riding. It features a Shimano Sora groupset and a carbon bladed fork, and comes fitted with mudguards for all-weather comfort. On top of that you get the same Lifeline advanced kit that you get with the Insight.
Third prize: £250 of dhb kit
We're fans of dhb's kit over here at road.cc - it performs well and won't break the bank. Wiggle will put together a prize bundle of summer gear worth £250 for the third-placed player.
Stage prize: a set of dhb triple lens sunglasses worth £29.99
Every one of the 21 stage winners in the game will receive a pair of dhb's triple lens system glasses, good for riding in all the weathers you can think of.
Purist winner: £150 of dhb kit
More dhb goodies for the purist winner: that's the player who amasses the most points without transferring any riders for the duration of the tour. It's not easy...
Raffle: £100 of lifeline kit
As if all that wasn't enough you can net yourself a prize by doing nothing other than picking a team. We'll pick one lucky user from all the entered teams, and they'll win a bundle of Lifeline tools and accessories.
Get a team in today! The race starts on Friday.
