Countdown to Festive 500 2011
Only a day left until the Festive 500 begins. This year it’s going to be bigger and crazier than ever. Let us know in the comments box or on Facebook how you’ll be attempting it. If you’re not sure exactly what the Festive 500 is, visit the landing page here »
The grand prize for this year’s number one ranked entry will receive a Paris-Roubaix Challenge 2012 limited edition Trek 6.9. Wow! We should also announce who won the 2011 Trek Madone 6.9, also in Paris-Roubaix paint scheme… But that will have to wait…
Over 3000 people took part in the Rapha Turkey Takeoff in November. In the lead up to the Festive 500 we’ve selected some of the best entries from the Takeoff. This season’s Festive 500 should be an absolute cracker (pun fully intended). We can’t wait.
Congratulations to - Cory Muth, Jill Eyres, Corey Kamp, Jeff Bean, Michael Watts, John Fell, Fredrik Folkeson, John DeBacker and Heidi Amundson - whose work features below. Congratulations to all who aentered the Turkey Takeoff and good luck to the brave riders attempting the Festive 500 over Christmas. Good luck!
