"Ride with Eddy" Contest
You can compete on the www.ridewitheddy.com website for a range of cycling prizes, with the top prize being a ride with Eddy Merckx at the Eddy Merckx Classic on 4 September in Salzburgerland, Austria. Furthermore, the winner can also take his authentic Quick Step EMX-5 Teambike worth € 7,795 home with him.
The contest runs up until 1 August 2011. Everyone can participate once every day. Extra chances can be obtained by sharing the contest with your Facebook friends.
Ride with Eddy is the slogan of the new Eddy Merckx Cycles advertising campaign. The underlying idea is that everyone who rides an Eddy Merckx bicycle also rides a little with the champion himself.
Eddy Merckx was the first Belgian to win the Giro d’Italia in 1968 and went on to win another four Corsa Rosa. Only the Italian greats Alfredo Binda and Fausto Coppi have also won the Giro five times.
