Lots of you told us who you favourite cyclist was not it's time to find our winner...

My word that was a popular Schwag Grab and a very interesting read too, but all good things must come to an end and now it's time to find out who will be walking awy with  a stylish Vulpine Soft Shell Jacket AND a Vulpine Merino Button jersey AND a Merino T-Shirt. The random-number-o-meter has been cranked up and the fickle finger of fate has done its pointy schtick and the winner is…

Antonio

Like a lot of you, Antonio's favourite cyclist is Mark Cavendish. A bundle of stylish, technical cycle wear will be winging its way to him asap.

Our lucky winner gets to pedal off with some top class clobber from Vulpine's range of stylish, performance oriented clothing that's technical enough to meet the demands of almost any form of cycling, yet casual enough to work off the bike in equally demanding social environments.

We were well impressed in our reviews of their Merino T and Merino Button jerseys… we've also got the Vulpine SoftShell in on review, but that's being done by Vecchiojo and he's an artist so can't be rushed although it's rumoured to be on the way any day now.

And because we enjoyed this competition so much we're going to run another with some more Vulpine goodies really soon, so fret not if you didn't win this time around.

To find out more about Vulpine visit their website www.vulpine.cc and for the Vulpine view on what's going to happen at the Tour next week visit their blog.
 

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.

Got to be Robert Millar - watching him as a teenager got me interested in the sport.

Marco Pantini, despite his flaws. So thrilling to watch him attack on the big climbs.

Hmm...I think it unfair to ask us to name but one rider when there are so many so I'm naming two (hope I don't get disqualified!)...1. Man of the moment Wiggo, 2. My mate Mickey for getting me back into cycling five years ago - best thing I ever did!

Current Jens Voight, from the past Sean Kelly.

Ollie Whalley and Esther Horanyi from 2012 Tour Divide are quite inspiring of current riders as well.
