|Are you the world's biggest cycling fan?
A challenge from Veltec Sports and Bicycling magazine
You ride the same bike and wear the same jersey as your favorite racer, and re-enact your idol's (maybe it's Eddy, maybe it's Lance -- could it be JaJa?) greatest moments on your weekend rides. You can recite the past 25 winners of the Tour de France, and you knew how to spell L'Alpe d'Huez back in kindergarten. But can you predict the future?
'Bicycling's Million Dollar Contest presented by Veltec Sports' puts your expertise to the test.
Veltec Sports will award $1,000,000 to the cycling fan who can predict, in correct order, the Top 10 finishers in the 2003 Tour de France. Every year, favored riders drop out of contention, unheralded upstarts challenge for stage wins, and crashes and mechanical failures conspire to guarantee that no lead is ever safe. Do you have the 'insider' knowledge of pro cycling it will take to call the action?
This is a tough task (even for the most seasoned Tour aficionados), and the Tour experts at Bicycling magazine are here to help. They'll update their own set of Top 10 predictions as the race approaches and the leading contenders rise to the top. You can update your own entry as often as you'd like, but only your most recent entry is eligible for prize consideration.

|I mean c'mon...Is Bicycling too cheap to pay for an ad for their own contest?|
|Hence their stellar rep here on this board.||look271|

|Think they posted it on their board? Most of the posters over there would probably put JaJa and Cipo in the top ten ;-) (Apologies to anyone here who also frequents their board.)|

|Bicycling could put a free ad for roadbikereview.com in their magazine. Then again, since nobody reads the rag, it would be an unfair trade.|
