Best be quick - only three more opportunities to win wining, dining and racing package!

After a later-than-usual Tiffin today - sorry to keep you waiting - we set the random number generator to work here at road.cc towers, and the name it came up with is... flaca!

Congratulations, and look out for an email winging its way to you very soon.

If you weren't lucky this time round, don't forget there's two more chances to win tickets for the rounds at Stoke-on-Trent and Chester, so look out for news of those here on road.cc very soon.


There are just four rounds to go in this year’s Halfords Tour Series, which means that we have three more opportunities for one lucky road.cc user to win a pair of VIP hospitality tickets up for grabs thanks to the generosity of the organisers.

The tickets give you fantastic views of the start and finish line, meaning you can watch some top-notch racing action including last night’s winner, Kristian House (pictured) and also include the chance to enjoy some fine food beforehand, with a free bar open before and during the race. Hospitality opens at 5.30pm, so you’d need to get to Peterborough by then or shortly after, with racing getting under way at 7pm. 

The prize, which is 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’ll also be running similar competitions for the rounds at Stoke-on-Trent and Chester, so watch out for news of VIP tickets for those here on road.cc.

To enter, just put make a comment in the 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.

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.
