Win A Trip to Verona and the Granfondo Eddy Merckx

We have had quite a few articles about the Granfondo Eddy Merckx, the most recent being on January 20th (includes an interview of Merckx and 2009 granfondo scenes).

BICYCLING magazine is once again running an essay contest, this one the "Colavita's Taste of Victory". One winner and guest will travel to Verona, Italy, to ride in the 2010 Granfondo Eddy Merckx on June 13. Contest entrants must tell BICYCLING, in 100 words or less, how they made extra virgin olive oil an essential training partner. Submit your favorite pre- or post-ride snacks or meals that incorporate extra virgin olive oil. The winner and guest will wear the colors of the Colavita/Baci Pro Cycling Team, courtesy of Giordana (as pictured above).

Contest ends 11:59 pm ET on March 31, 2010; see rules.

Contest entry is online here.
