Cool deal at LBS with Stage winner

My LBS is giving 20% back for what ever brand bike wins that days stage so if a Specialized bike wins todays stage. Purchase a Specialized bike and recieve a gift certificate worth 20% of the bike's purchase price.

How do I find out which bike won each stage, I am looking at getting a new bike

You're going about it the wrong way.

FIRST figure out what different branded bikes (2 or 3) at the store you like.

NEXT go do a google search or company-site search of those brands to see which teams are using them.

and THEN figure out which of those teams have riders who could possibly win a stage.

FINALLY get ready to pay up on any given day one of those riders or teams wins.
