Some lush goodies from yesterday swanky team launch in London

Unprecented levels of notebook desire meant that the random number generator had to work overtime this week, but when the chiselled wooden ball rolled down the overtly-complex system of channels a la Minority Report, the name etched into the side was...

dannyg!

Congratulations danny, get in touch and we'll pop off all the Sky goodies. Next up is a classic racing book and calendar combo, usual rules apply... get commenting!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two Schwag grabs this week, well it's January and the first week back after the hols and we all need cheering up. Both Schwag grabs will be timely in their own way. And first up it's some instant memorabilia from yesterday's Team Sky launch – a Team Sky goodie bag.

As you'd expect from such a high tone professional outfit the goodie bag from yesterday’s team launch is a classy piece of kit. A natty Sky musette (hardly creased at all after being stuffed in Tony's rucksack for the journey home) contains a set of postcards of all the Sky riders plus info cards on the team and their equipment. That team bus will be a Volvo 9700 dontcha know equipped with nine Rider Stations – Estaban fully reclining coach seats with electronic calf support with a Sky box under each one for “individual rider channel selection” (well it wasn't going to be Freeview was it?); there's also mood lighting created in consultation with Dr Steve Peters the team psychiatrist… boy they really are keen on the detail. Our only worry is that they won't want to get off.

Yeah, there's a card about the bike too, and the Sky's team mission statement, The Line. Oh, and a useful race schedule for 2010 – we've already marked our calendar. The best bit though is the very lovely Moleskine notebook, it pains us to give that away, but for you…

Anyway usual Schwag Grab rules apply, one entry only, and you enter by commenting below. The road.cc random number generator will pluck a lucky winner from the list on Friday afternoon when we'll also launch another Schwag Grab.

I'd quite like the notebook on its own. Wonder if they'll put them in the online shop when it opens.

I reckon Team Sky is going to make this year's racing a whole hell of a lot more interesting, especially with the knock on effects of some of the 'shuffling'

Will be interesting to see how it pans out for them.

The whole sky team/marketing is a brilliant exercise in brand design - it makes all other pro teams seem amateur.

So I'd love a piece of UK cycling and design history please

Pity they couldn't spare you a bike. Nevertheless the notebook looks good.

Me, me, me! Out-raphas even Rapha bits and bobs for style IMHO. I already have a part used Moleskin so need a new one and being on Jobseekers I'm too poor to buy one so a (ultra stylish) freebie would be much appreciated.
