Tour de France giveaway competition

Rothera caps

There’s another chance to win one of the Rothera Cycling caps on Stage 19.

This time predict the time of the winner on Stage 19, as in how many hours and minutes and even seconds it will take them. The closest guess wins.

To help, note the organisers are predicting an average speed between 34-38km/h for the 109.5km stage and if you really want to get the spreadsheet working overtime, don’t forget the weather, the neutralised section at the beginning and other elements. Or just try a wild guess and see if you get lucky.

Le prix
A cycling cap from Rothera Cycling. It’s moisture wicking, water repellent, windproof, fast drying, machine washable and made by hand.

The commissaire bit
All entries must be in before 16.00 Central European Time, the blog’s clock is the judge. Any entries received afterwards get ignored, sorry.

Please leave your name and email. Note you can use a pseudonym and the email is confidential, rest assured I’m not going to spam you and nobody reading the blog can get your email, it’s just so I can reply if you’re the lucky winner.

Please don’t email or send answers via Twitter, only comments below are valid as it helps to keep everything in one place. In the event of a tie I’ll copy the winning names into a spreadsheet and use a random formula to generate the winner.
