Win yourself a prime position to cheer on Kuota-road.cc!

The Halfords Tour Series is now approaching its halfway point, with the fifth round of ten taking place on Tuesday evening in Southport, and thanks to the generosity of the organisers, one lucky road.cc user will enjoy VIP hospitality with a pair of tickets up for grabs.

The VIP area enjoys great views of the start and finish line, putting you in the thick of the action, and before racing begins you’ll be treated to some fine food, with a free bar throughout to boot.

And with Kuota-road.cc looking to close the gap on teams ahead of them, you’ll be in prime position to cheer the boys on.

Hospitality opens at 5.30pm, so you’ll need to be able to arrive in Southport by then, with the race beginning at 7pm and podium presentations are at 8.45pm. The prize, for two people, includes:

• Exclusive views of the finish line and end-of-race podium presentations


• Buffet Dinner with accompanying wines


• Complimentary bar (alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages)


• Tea and coffee served all day


• A few words from Tour Series Chief Executive, Hugh Roberts or Technical Director, Mick Bennett


• Official Tour Series programme


• Experienced hostess and wait staff to ensure the smooth running of your day.

We’re running a similar competition for all remaining rounds of the Tour Series with the exception of the final round in Woking, so if you live in or near Kettering, Peterborough, Stoke-on-Trent or Chester, watch out for news of VIP tickets for those here on road.cc.

To enter, just put your name down on the comment thread below – normal road.cc competition rules apply, so only one entry per person, and good luck. We’ll be drawing the lucky winner’s name at Tiffin time on Monday.

In the meantime, there are two podcasts online now to help you get the inside scoop on the Tour Series to date – the first, featuring Technical Director Mick Bennett and Endura Racing’s Rob Hayles, can be found here, while another, with Thursday night’s winner in Exeter, Dean Downing of Rapha-Condor-Sharp, is available here.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Sorry Simon, Chester is our home this year. Although Southport would be more appropriate as Kuota is based just round the corner.

Thanks JJ, must have changed since original info we had.

Sorry, but don't think we can take your comment as entry to the competition though, especially as you'll be otherwise engaged!  3

The Halfords Tour Series is by far the best sporting event that comes to Southport each year. It has inspired me to get off the couch and take up cycling again after a long battle against cancer. I'll be coming along again this year and as a VIP would be wonderful.
Have a great evening!
