PowerBar are the official sports nutrition sponsor of the Tour de France, and every year they give cyclists a chance to win with the Tour de France — this is year it is the #powerbartour. This gives you a chance to win a cycling holiday plus jerseys every day.
Even though we’re an online bike shop, we still love anything related to endurance sports because of our love of PowerBar. This is why we gave a hamper full of PowerBar Sports Nutrition as a prize at the Dublin Marathon this year. We’ve worked through the entries, and the winner of the PowerBar hamper has been chosen.
As you may have noticed, we work closely with PowerBar to promote the brand and manage the sponsorship of Cycling Ireland. Our support doesn’t just stop at cycling because we are an online cycling store, where anything that requires equal endurance is of interest to us – so we were at the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Dublin in August.
We’re a little late in posting this, and we’ve been away from the blog for a while as we work on some longer term projects for our bike shop. While we’ve been busy working on the business side of things, it’s mostly due to the time it’s taken most of us here in the office to get over the loss of our top riders in our Tour de France Fantasy Cycling Teams.
This year is a big year for Cycling in the UK and Ireland. The Giro d’Italia is arriving into Ireland in a matter of days and the Tour de France is arriving into the UK in a little over 2 months. So we want to celebrate that by giving you a chance to win a Contour GPS Action Camera.
