Win a Trip to Verona and Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx

Reminder: The deadline for entering BICYCLING's 50 word essay contest to win a trip to Verona, entry in the Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx, and an Eddy Merckx EMX-3 bike is upon us! To top it off, Eddy Merckx will be there in person and riding in the event.

ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY 11:59 PM ET, April 20, 2009.

You can submit your entry, read the rules first!, online at:

The Gran Fondo Eddy Merckx offers the choice of 148km, 90km and 40km routes. The 148km route includes an impressive 1740 meters of climbing. The 90km route includes its share of challenging climbs and shouldn't be underestimated.

If you are entering the gran fondo in any case note that the first 500 riders to enter will each receive a bandana signed by Merckx.

There will be a pasta party at the finish and each rider will receive a goody bag packed with clothing (the gran fondo is also sponsored by Giordana) and food.

Youtube video, in Italian, of the start of the 2008 edition; it's always enjoyable listening to Merckx speaking in Italian:
