Fred Whitton Challenge 2009 (pic by Tony Greenbank)

The Fred Whitton Challenge is one of the founding fathers of the modern sportive scene. It's been running since before they were called sportives, and its 112-mile parcours takes in some of the toughest climbs in the UK including the legendary 30% wall that is Hardknott Pass. It's popular, too, and sold out now for this year, but MuleBar have two places up for grabs if you don't have a ride but would still love to go.

To enter, all you need to do is head over to the MuleBar facebook page and Like it, then go to the Fred Whitton Challenge story and follow the instructions. Easy! Winners will be announce on Tuesday 8 May. Good luck!

If you want to know what it's like to ride the Fred Whitton, here's Dave's ride report from 2011.

Cracking picture! Of course, it could never do the ferocity of those hills justice.
