Sharpen your pencils for Velobici

To reflect British cycling success throughout 2012, Vélobici is holding its first writing competition with some fantastic prizes on offer.  There are 3 categories: The Ride, The Bike and The Race, so your story doesn’t have to be about professional racing. It can be about your own rides, your own memories”.  Entries should be no more than 1,000 words (there is no minimum, to encourage the odd Haiku!).

Simply visit the Vélobici website and click on the relevant category to submit your entry by email.  The closing date is 10pm on 17 August 2012 and the winners will be announced during September. Read more to find out about the prizes.

The winner of the Race category will receive a set of the new roadwear, either Van Abel or Van Dapper (Jersey & shorts); winner of the Bike category will win either a Classic Bob Maitland or Tommy Godwin jersey,  and the winner of the Ride category will win a Lombardy Classic Cardigan with matching Seamless Merino Scarf and Gloves. For female winners, we have a set of Ella Paris or Ella Nice as well as a set of Vélobici’s soon-to-be-released women’s wear, a technical vest and briefs. Each winner will receive a copy of the latest publications from Mousehold Press and all three finalists will also be recorded by commentator David Harmon and made available as a podcast on the Vélobici website.

  • Probably the most iconic image of Pantani from the 1998 Tour de France. Many riders were faced with an EPO scandal and solidarity amongst riders called for action. A peaceful sit-down was the answer. The doping scandals never stopped coming though... #pantani #anniversary #valentines
  • The King of pain, Pantani could bury himself and burn his soul, off the bike was a more difficult place to do that. #valentines #anniversary #pantani
  • Not forgotten. One of the greatest cyclists to ever grace the sport. Panache exists for riders like Marco Pantani. #pantani
  • Hennie Kuiper's 1975 World Championship bike.
  • This is bike by @tobytoad is just so good!
