Friday Schwag Grab: a road.cc jersey

More high-class clothing up for grabs

by Dave Atkinson   April 3, 2009  

road.cc jersey

After the heady heights of the Howies jacket we blagged to give away last week, it was always going to be a let down to return to the seedy world of mugs, t-shirts and general, well, schwag in which the Friday Schwag Grab normally dwells. So to soften the blow a bit we've decided to give you the chance to win one of our very own road.cc jerseys.

Made in Scotland from the finest Plaidyester™ with its proven performance enhancing qualities* and with all the refinements you'd expect from a top of the range jersey:

  • zip (hidden so as not to disturb the fine line of the plaid);
  • rear pocket – divided into three handy compartments so that you can keep your pre-ride, mid-ride, and post-ride cake, banana, and cake separate;
  • road.cc logo (front and back!)
  • plaid pattern – pretty much all over

All you have to do to be in the draw is post a comment below. Depending on how many entries we get we'll either use our traditional method of drawing a winner (print the names out, cut 'em up and stick 'em in a hat) or the new nerd-friendly system (export a csv file of the comments, feed the number of entries into the www.random.org integer generator, hit refresh until tony shouts stop)

The judge's decision is exactly that, andyou can't have cash instead. But you can choose from M, L or XL (sorry, we ran out of S and XXL)

* er… okay we made that up, but it looks fast

Now, how's the fit? Can't decide between a 'L' or an 'XL'!! (I've lost a little weight so "might" get away with a 'L'..........in my dreams Wink )

incidentally, if you're wondering why we haven't picked a winner yet it's because it's good friday and there were a lot of hot cross buns to be eaten. i'll be on it later though Smile

Normally we'd put another schwag grab on friday too. but we're much too lazy to schlep into the office now and sort it out. so i guess we'll do it on tuesday provided we survive the cotswold spring classic...
