Port to Port MTB Stage Race - Entry giveaway here!

Entries now closed!

Win a complimentary ride entry into the 2017 Port to Port MTB race, May 25 - 28, valued at $440!

Port to Port MTB is one of the nation’s premium MTB stage races. A chance to experience some of the incredible tracks and trails we have in our backyard. OK - well, Newcastle's backyard, but it's not that far Eye-wink

The kind folks at Port to Port MTB Stage Race have given us a complimentary entry into this year's event to do with as we please.

While they suggest this could be auctioned off or used personally by an admin fairy I thought a more appropriate use would be to simply offer this entry to the community in a lottery.

If you would like to take part in this lottery simply comment (once or more, but multiple comments will not increase your chance of winning) on this thread before midnight on Sunday 23 April 2017 (AEST). The winner will be chosen at random the following day to give them plenty of time to register. NB: public registrations close May 23 so if you don't win but will still like to enter there's plenty of chance to do so.

NB: This is a multi-day MTB stage race. Please be sure you are able to complete the course and are able to meet other logistical requirements (transport, accommodation, meals and other incidentals are NOT included) before entering.

See the attached Ts&Cs from the event organiser.

... and good luck! Smiling

I wouldn't begrudge the administrators of this fantastic community forum taking this awesome prize and enjoying the benefit for themselves!

... but I suspect it would take a petition with plenty of names on it to send it back to the admins now that they've put it on the table. Having said that, I'm in for the raffle if it's on!

Looks like a lot of fun. I'm even back to riding multiple days in a row so I may just survive the full number of stages... and live to write about it Sticking out tongue

Looks like an opportunity for a fund-raiser.

Personally I'm lukewarm on the prospect of the ride (looks like a pain fest to me), but I'll auction it off to the highest bidder with proceeds to a worthy charity. Something youth orientated I'm thinking.
