WIN AN ENTRY to the 2017 Alma GP!


Win an entry to the 2017 Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross!

Thanks to Middy Matthews - Howard Hannah Realty, the person with the most correct prediction for the top three elite women finishers at the world cyclocross championships on Saturday, January 28, will get a free entry to the 2017 Alma GP (on September 9), a custom water bottle from Avalon Pontoons, and custom Alma GP bar tape from Zevlin!

To enter:
1) LIKE the Middy Matthews - Howard Hannah Facebook page
2) Post your prediction for the top three women finishers, in order, at the world championships on 1/28 in the comments for the contest post on the Alma GP Facebook page
3) Tag ONE friend in your comment!

If you need help deciding, check out the UCI ranking table HERE!

Entries must be made by Friday, 1/27, at 11:59 p.m. EST. You may enter only once. Make your choices carefully, and if there are multiple posts with the most correct choices (as deemed by me) I’ll use a random number generator or pick the winner by who has the most fluorescent yellow in their kits, or by who races on a Cannondale, or by whoever my youngest daughter thinks should win. Seriously folks, it’s not a lottery ticket. It’s for fun. Winner can pick an entry into the cyclocross or 5k race at the 2017 Alma GP. Entry coupon is not transferable and carries a cash value of $0.000000000001 should you try to sell it for some foolish reason. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that support the Alma GP!
