Giro Jersey Competition Starts NOW!

In association with, the Peloton KOM Giro Jersey Writing Competition has begun!

I know there are many good writers out there among you. All the Daily Peloton writers were once readers until they took that first step and wrote something. It is our passion for the sport that makes us write, and which puts this site here. So express yourself about this year's Giro (because you know you want to), and have a chance at a jersey too!

The competition is open to everyone, and the best story/viewpoint/commentary/poem will win this coveted KOM jersey- the Maglia Verde. Every article submitted according to the rules below - on what ever aspect of the race - will be accepted and judged fairly. We are looking for your views on this great race!
