tried a list I found of 2007 codes and modified/guessed at some others.

none of the rider's names seem to work. saab must not want to take a chance and have their choice(s) kicked out this year

rbr also has a thread going and I will continue to add codes words from their list, too

In addition, I had forgotten that in the past you could get multiple plays by changing capitalization, eg. bonk, Bonk, BONK, bOnk, boNk, and bonK, and so on were all separate plays. Does not appear to be the case this year.

The Saab contest, not that I know of - but a couple years ago a bf member stole a Trek 1500 by cheating on their online contest:

Looky what I won from Trek TourMania...

FWIW : I just won a Yellow Jersey last week Wed. (7/9/08). Won't see it for 8-10 weeks however.
Thanks for posting the code words. Much apreciated!

Also, a little strategy folks. Don't burn up all your chances going for a jersey if you want to win a bike... The prizes are awarded randomly. If you happen to click at the right moment in time, you win. The "spinner" is just for looks.

FYI: When I was playing yesterday for the bike, I found that it no longer accepted the two word answers as two separate plays, one with and one without spaces. YMMV

I haven't won but from what I understand, you will have much better odds of winning if you enter your keywords at a time when others aren't, like at 5am Eastern time, you'll increase your chances of winning. It's based on a time.

Well, I entered CSC today and did not get a spin opportunity. Instead I got this:
"You've played all you can..., etc, etc"
