Experience one of the world's great bike races courtesy of The World's Ultimate Cycling Races...

We have a winner for our first 2012 Tour of Britain compo of a day sampling the action at close quarters from a race convoy car. The prize comes courtesy of the nice people at Collins and who are also giving away two copies of their new book The World's Ultimate Cycling Races as runners up prizes. And the winner is…

arrieredupeloton - who gets the chance to go up front for the day and to bring a friend too.

Copies of the World's Ultimate Cycling Races will be in the post to:

Chutzpah - which is a bit spooky given his comment in the compo - I hate it when the random-number-o-meter does that; and
Livestrongnick

Congrats to those three and if you didn't win fret not… we've got another awesome Tour of Britain compo coming up shortly.

 

=======================================================================================================

As well as experiencing the full stage from the back of a race convoy car, our winner (+ friend) will get:

  • An opportunity to mix with the riders
  • Continental breakfast served with tea and coffee (although you might want to go easy on that seeing as you'll be in a car non-stop for four hours shortly afterwards)
  • An official Tour of Britain programme
  •  Experienced hostess to ensure the smooth running of your morning

All you've got to do is get yourself to the start line and home from the finish line - the race car will pick you up from one and drop you off at the other it will be up to you to manage the rest.

he World's Ultimate Cycling Races comes out on September the 27th and was compiled by top cycling journo, (and an old road.cc chum), Ellis Bacon. The book contains everything you need to know about the best cycling events across the globe, including facts and statistics for cyclists of all levels, and for spectators who want to learn about the best races to watch, ahead of publication you can find out more by visiting The World's Ultimate Cycling Races Facebook page.

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning the prize is comment in below. Usual Schwag Grab rules apply. We will announce the winner on Friday morning.

Good luck!

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.
