Here’s your chance to ride alongside double Olympic gold medallist Geraint Thomas

The Team Sky rider is an ambassador for the Etape Cymru, an epic, lung-busting, leg-aching 92-mile sportive set to take place on Sunday September 9.

We will pick five winners, each of whom will win entry into the end-of-season event, and will join Thomas on a private team ride.

The Etape Cymru route has received some major modifications from the 2011 edition; starting and finishing in Wrexham and passing through the Clwydian Range (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), the updated course covers 92 miles of challenging terrain and takes in a host of tough climbs, including the legendary Horseshoe Pass.

Thomas said: “The Etape Cymru is one of the toughest closed road events in Britain and as a proud Welshman I am delighted to support it. The 92-mile route offers cyclists a challenging but fabulous opportunity to enjoy our spectacular Welsh scenery in the safety of a closed road environment.

“Good luck to all the entrants, cycle hard, keep smiling and enjoy your day and the north Wales hospitality.”
