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.

Well i would say myself, but thats slightly big headed  19

The whole reason I took up cycling is thanks to Channel 4 during the early 90's with Gary Imlach and Phil Liggett. The cyclist being Miguel Indurain. He got me out on the road, cycling stupidly long distances before i'd even started school.

David Millar. To come through, and come clean, like he did demands my huge respect.

It's got to be The Big Mig - Miguel Indurain. From when I first started watching the TdF back in the 90's. A humble hero!

Gino Bartali for winning that triumphant the Tour back in 1948 - 10 years after his previous victory in 38 - and he did it all on a diet of fags, red wine and pasta.

Tony Farrelly.....oh no, wait its probably a toss up between Voeckler and Hoogerland after their heroics.in last year's TdF but by the start of August I'm sure I'll have a new one for 11 months at least. That's the best thing about the tour, there's so.many absolute heroes.

Chris Boardman. I remember seeing him training when visiting my aunt on the Wirral and being amazed a bike could go that fast. And I like his Rohan shirts...

Peter Sagan for his explosive riding, massive potential and the fact that he hasn't yet been caught for any doping offences!

local legend Ray Harrad. Coming up for 80 years old and still going strong, encouraging lots of chldren to get into cycling as well as marshalling the local club 10 on wednesdays and riding many miles a week, even the occasional race (including cyclocross). He is known by just about every cyclist in the Dartford area  1

It's my son Harry. Seeing him progress from balance bike to riding without ever having stabilisers has been proper proud dad stuff.
