Trek, as a sponsor of the Étape du Tour, have announced a competition for buyers of its premium road bike line, the Madone. One lucky customer will win an exclusive trip to ride the Étape with Trek Travel.
Anyone buying a Madone between 13th February and 30th April 2009 can register their details and bike serial number on the Trek website, www.trekbikes.com. The prize is an exclusive 5 day, 4 night luxury level bike trip as offered by Trek Travel on their web site www.trektravel.com
Staying at the impressive Chateau de Massillan, once the hunting lodge of Henry II, the winner will have the opportunity to ride the Étape with full support and feed stations exclusive to Trek Travel riders. You're also assured an early start number: with fewer people in front, you stand the chance of setting a great time, or at least having one!
Trek and Trek Travel will make the trip as smooth and enjoyable as possible; the winner still has to turn the pedals all the way from Montélimar to the top of Mont Ventoux themselves, though...
This prize, at time of going to press, was valued at over £3500.
