The last Grand Tour of the year is almost upon us and it's set to be a cracker! And if you sign up to play our Fantasy Vuelta a España competition you could win one of a whole bunch of great prizes from Wiggle.
It's a stellar line up for this year's race. Tour de France non-finishers Chris Froome and Alberto Contador are taking the start, Movistar are sending a pincer movement of Nairo Quintana and Alejandro Valverde, there's Uran, Kelderman, Talansky, Evans, Horner... It should be a cracking race. We'll be running a Fantasy Cycling competition of course, and it's free to enter. And there's a bunch of stuff to win!
First prize: A Verenti Insight 0.2 Rival road bike worth £1,120
Top dog walks away with this great-spec carbon sportive machine from Verenti, with a full SRAM Rival groupset. All you have to do is be the best out of the few thousand teams that enter. How hard can that be?
Second prize: A dhb kit bundle worth £250
Second on the podium gets a selection of dhb kit hand-picked for them by the nice folks at Wiggle. That should see you looking sharp this Autumn.
Third prize: A Wiggle Nutrition bundle worth £125
Third spot gets you a big box of Wiggle's new nutrition products, which will give you a buzz on your bike for a good few months to come.
Stage prize: A set of dhb triple lens sunnies worth £29.99
The sun might have made itself scarce by the time the Vuelta finished but helpfully these also come with clear and night lenses, which will get plenty of use.
Purist prize: A selection of Lifeline products worth £125
Purist means no transfers: if you pick your team on day one and it's top of the pile on day 21, you'll get a selection of Lifeline essential tools and accessories.
Raffle: A dhb kit bundle worth £250
You don't even have to be any good to win a prize. We'll pick one lucky player from everyone that enters and they'll get a £250 dhb bundle for their efforts. However poor they are...
Just head over to fantasy.road.cc to pick your team. The first stage is Saturday: it's an evening time trial so you have until the afternoon on Saturday to enter your team. If you miss the first stage deadline, you can still pick a team at any point during the race and play for stage prizes.
