I spent a few evenings guessing words at more-or-less random, just to see if they'd work as codes, and some of them did. E.g., I guessed "tourmalet" several days before it was actually displayed on the TV.

I wonder if they have any logic to basically ensure you don't win if you use a word before the day it is given?

Thanks, DrPete! I just tried "musette" and it worked (but not well enough for me to win).

I think they have logic built in to make sure that you don't win, regardless.

Yeah, I read the rules and apparently it's set up so that the yellow jersey is given out at a random time during the day, so if the time ends up being 2:33 AM that's just tough for us...

It's all good, though--a little headache is worth it for my Saab and Cervelo...

5. Sweepstakes/Instant Win Game: Administrator is an independent judging organization whose decisions as to the administration and operation of the Sweepstakes and the selection of potential winners are final and binding in all matters related to the Promotion. Sweepstakes: Administrator will randomly select the potential Sweepstakes winner, from all eligible entries on or around July 27, 2006. Instant Win Game: Twenty-three (23) random, computer-generated winning times, one per day for each prize listed below, will be generated during the Promotion Period. If you are the first player to play the Instant Win Game at or after one of the randomly generated times, you will be a potential instant winner of the prize indicated.
