Right, afternoon snacks have been taken - Tunnock's Snowballs were the snack du jour – the chestnuts were taking absolutely ages on the laptop… but I digress. The random number generator has done its stuff and the fickle finger has pointed and we have three winners.

Cyclopedias will be flying their way just as soon as we've got addresses to send them to. We'll whack them in the post pront and hey might even make it to you for Christmas. Maybe

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
