Winner gets a prize.

#131 divided by 2, add one item the new math way, equals something I might be getting on Sunday.

Tell me what this is exactly by name and I will send you a cycling related prize.

If you know me good enough this should be an easy guess.

Contest ends in five hours from thread time stamp.

Dan is exempt from this game.

Well not really. You are just closer than anyone else on Foo so far.

ILB it's not really too much of math more than it is knowing me. Just follow instructions and think about what I'd be getting.
