Win a signed BMC photo

BMC are leading the charge at this week’s Amgen Tour of California with a powerful team which includes general classification contender Tejay van Garderen, reigning world champion Philippe Gilbert and former rainbow jersey Thor Hushovd.

They’ve been kind enough to provide us with a photo – the one at the top of this post – from the Vuelta al Pais Vasco (Tour of the Basque Country) signed by their entire team from the race, which includes both Gilbert and van Garderen. We’re going to give this away to one lucky winner! Continue reading

COMPETITION: Win a Tour de France poster

Bruce Doscher produces fantastic posters for every stage of the Tour de France and he’s generously agreed to give one VeloVoices reader the poster of their choice. Hand-signed front and back, the poster is printed on environmentally friendly, pH neutral, high-quality archival stock and carefully wrapped in tissue paper, put in a sturdy postal tube and sent to the winner via Air Mail.

To be in with a chance to win, just answer this question: which rider holds the record for days in yellow without winning a Tour? Answers on an email to velovoices@gmail.com. Competition is open until 11.59pm BST, Monday 23rd July and the winner will be drawn from correct entries on Tuesday 24th July. Go to Bruce’s website to see more details on his posters! And look out for our interview with Bruce later this week!

COMPETITION: BMC Bumper Ballan Bonus

We knew the VeloVoices drinks trolley would pay for itself one day! We’ve been schmoozing it a bit with the friendly peeps at BMC and they have generously given us some cool team memorabilia to give to you. (Yes, YOU!) We have three prizes on offer:

3rd prize: A set of 2012’s official autograph card set – hold them out at the barricades and see who signs!

2nd prize: A jaunty BMC cycling cap – you’ve seen it on Cadel Evans, now you too can look like a champion!

And 1st prize: The official 2012 Paris-Roubaix programme signed by Alessandro Ballan himself.
