velodrome - prespective

Track cycling with Geraint Thomas! Oh, and us. That's a cracking prize and sadly only one of you could win it, which is why we sweetened the deal even more with a couple of CNP Professional starter packs. So three winners for the big random number-o-tron to pluck from the atmospheric noise* and first out of the hat for the win and the chance to pound the boards was...

CycleGringo!

So he'll be joining us for some clockwise fun on October 24, and ortonangel and LorneC pick up the runner's up prizes. Congratulations to our three winners and sorry if you missed out - there'll be plenty more opportunities to win. And soon!

*this really happens - check out www.random.org

------------------------------------------------

Track cycling is cool, Geraint Thomas is cool… so going track cycling with Geraint Thomas how cool would that be? Pretty flippin' cool. And that's the prize on offer in our latest tracktastic Schwag Grab a VIP place on the next Geraint Thomas Track Day at Newport Velodrome courtesy of the good folk at Newport City Council!

There's more… we've also got two CNP Professional who supply Team Sky and British Cycling with their nutrition products, have given us starter packs for two lucky runners up.

The Geraint Thomas Track Day is at Newport velodrome on Monday 24 October, the prize also includes free bike hire, a three course lunch and a charity cycling auction afterwards in which you can bid for signed jerseys and other assorted Sky and Tour de France memorabilia, and you get to go home with a CNP Professional sports nutrition goody bag too. The whole thing is limited to 50 places so you're guaranteed some quality track time with Geraint, and Luke Rowe, Jon Mould and Owain Doull from the British Olympic Academy. And don't worry about not knowing anyone Dave and I will be on hand for friendly banter and to make whoever wins look good out there on the wood.

To enter all you need have to do is comment in below AND be available on the 24th… oh, yeah it's an early start too 8am at the velodrome to be measured up for your bike.

If you'd like to go and you don't want to trust to the fickle finger of fate to sort you out with a place a handful of spots are still available at £100 each to find out more email gayle@seren-pr.co.uk. You can find out more about the Geraint Thomas Track Day via his website www.geraintthomas.com.

Usual Schwag Grab Rules apply and we will pick a winner next Wednesday… good luck

Does it matter if you've never been on a track before? Or to Wales for that matter?
