A huge pile of one of our favourite energy foods up for grabs - did you win?

Tiffin gets ever later at the moment: tonight it consists of a glass of whisky. Alien's on the telly, it's all good. Anyway, to business. We asked you if you wanted to win 365 9Bars to get you through the the year: you said yes, in your droves. There can only be one winner this time though. So www.random.org has done its work and the fickle finger of fate is pointing at you...


Congratulations to our winner, and his immediate family and friends who'll no doubt be helping themselves to handfuls of seedy goodness, as it were. There'll be more schwag along reet soon, so stay tuned!


It's energy-schwag-tastic around here at the moment. Not content with knocking out a big pile of Zipvit goodies over the past couple of weeks, we're offering you a chance to walk away with a year's supply of delicious 9Bars, as used by Ed Clancy and Craig MacLean – one for every day of the year!

9Bar describe them as a "deliciously nutritious seed bar designed to get the maximum nutritional goodness from seeds in a convenient and tasty way... Seeds are a nutritionally dense food containing a wide range of nutrients including minerals, vitamins, essential amino and fatty acids. As part of a balanced, healthy diet seeds can provide a wide range of nutrients." There's five different flavours – Flax is Tony's fave, while Dave prefers original; we're not sure about Ed and Craig – and the winner will get a nice mix.

Cards on the table: the 9Bar is a big favourite at road.cc towers, both as an energy source for longer rides and as a tiffin replacement when there's no tiffin to be had. They may not be the most technical of energy products but come the later hours of a big ride there's not much we'd rather be tucking into to get us round. When we reviewed the 9Bar on the site, nutrition guinea pig David Else called it a "Healthy, delicious and natural energy bar", and also said that he "was always looking forward to the next one, whereas with some other energy products I find myself forcing them down". Nom.

So what do you have to do to be in with a shout of picking up 365 of these tasty little blighters? Just comment below and you're in the hat. Usual schwag grab rules apply and we'll be picking the lucky winner on Friday afternoon as we tuck into a 9Bar of our our own. Good luck!
