We're well into the swing of things at the Giro now, with the mountain time trial today kicking off week three and the road to the finale in Milan. And one lucky road.cc reader is going to be cheering from the strade of Italy's second city before hobnobbing it with the great and good of pro cycling – thanks to Garmin-Cervélo and Evans Cycles – as our Giro competition winner.
And who is that lucky winner? Why, it's scruffy. Or Kerry-Anne Hedges, as she's known in the real world. Kerry-Anne's very excited about getting to see the ins and outs of the Giro shakedown at first hand, and since it's a prize for two she's taking her mum. Here's hoping they have a fantastic trip, we're sure they will. Kerry-Anne's currently 2,062nd in the Giro game after a slow start, but she's been picking up of late with some decent hauls through the mountains.
There were two runners-up prizes up for grabs too, a Garmin Edge 800 bundle for second and an Edge 500 for third. The second prize went to Sean Hogan (seanieh66, 1,007th overall in the Giro) who'll have to wait a bit to get the best out of the OS mapping that comes with the Edge 800, as he's currently in Singapore... Third prize went to Matthew Agnew (theagnews, 1,285th overall in the Giro) who'll be able to test his shiny new Edge 500 on the mean streets of Surrey.
Congratulations to our three winners, and don't forget that there's spot prizes up for grabs all this week in the Fantasy Giro game. Have a look here to see what we're awarding schwag for before the finish in Milan. Good luck!
