The Vuelta Writing Contest Closes Soon!

From the crossroads of Europe and Asia, where Rabun from Turkey reads his reports, to the lakes of Minnesota, to the golden surf of California, the Vuelta Espaņa journals of Bingen Fernandez Bustinza caught everyone's imagination. His tales from the peloton were oft been quoted by commentators across Europe as the great race in Spain unfolded...

Now, courtesy of the Cofidis Vuelta riders - David Millar, Daniel Atienza Urendez, Angelo Lopeboselli, Iņigo Cuesta Lopez de Castro, Peter Farazijn, Bingen Fernandez Bustinza, Dmitry Fofonov, Luis Perez Rodriguez and Guido Trentin - you have a chance to win a Cofidis jersey signed by the Cofidis Vuelta team.

A great prize, this, and one which will not be easy to win (just like a Grand Tour, as Bingen's diaries have shown us), but which on the other hand is very easy - all you have to do is write an article on cycling. It could be about a race, a ride, a maintainence tip, a team, whatever you choose. Simply put your best words into an article on cycling and the writer of the winning article will receive the signed Cofidis Vuelta jersey.

So get your golden pens ready, and here we go!
