VIP hospitaltiy at final stage + a place to race in the IG Markets Hill Climb Challenge courtesy of Map My Tracks

We have a winner for what has to be one of the best competitions we've ever run… Our lucky winner will get to pit himself and his bike against gravity and a very steep hill in front of cheering crowds in the IG Hill Climb Challenge before settling back with a friend to enjoy some VIP hospitality while watching the pros tackle the same hill shortly after - all courtesy of Map My Tracks. So, who did the random-number-o-meter pick?

Phil Walker is the lucky man - he's been informed and even now is ramping up his training.

Bad luck to those of you that missed out, but there will be another great roadcc competition along soon… although it won't be containing any hill climb hurt (sorry about that).
 

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

On Sunday 16th September after completing almost 150km of racing, the final stage of The Tour of Britain concludes with a dramatic scramble to the finish on Guildford’s scenic cobbled High Street. We have teamed up with the official GPS tracking supplier for the 2012 Tour of Britain, Map My Tracks, to offer you the chance to take on this climb moments before the leaders arrive, with a coveted place in the IG Hill Climb Challenge.

With only 40 riders taking part in this invitation-only event in front of capacity crowds, this is your chance to put your climbing skills to the test and see if you can make it onto the podium… and possibly throw up on Guildford High St without being arrested.

Afterwards, you’ll be able to cool off and watch The Tour’s closing moments with a guest from a prime location on the finishing straight. This VIP experience will include an exquisite buffet lunch accompanied by a selection of Adnams wines, and comes courtesy of Map My Tracks.

This really is one belter of a prize and a great day out for you and your plus one. To enter the competition, all you need to do is comment in below - usual Schwag Grab rules apply + the winner enters the Hill Climb at his/her own their own risk and Tinderhouse Ltd cannot accept any responsibility for any loss or damage to property or individuals. We will announce the winner next Wednesday.

Map My Tracks will be tracking the peloton's progress every step of the way during The Tour of Britain, allowing fans and spectators to follow the race online or via the Map My Tracks App.

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.

I have a college reunion on Saturday. So if I carboload on liquid goodness until about 4 am and then grab a few hours kip, before getting the train to Guildford, that'll be perfect preparation.

I'll blame my tacking up the hill as me attempting to test the accuracy of my tracks not the fact I can't climb over a postage stamp, that would be too humiliating!
