Any one want to have a contest? Free Wheels?

How does a contest sound to anyone?

Rules:

Submit a photo you have taken to the forum, don't steal it from some website original material only. Second rule, the photo must have a mountain bike in it.

From there I will select 4 finalists for every one to vote on at this web page LINK.

Dead Lines:

Last day for Photo Submission is June 19th at 12 noon central time
Voting Begins June 19 at 5pm central time
Voting Closes June 24th at 12 noon central time

Prize:
One pair of wheels. Rims are Velocity Blunts, Hubs are Shimano XT 6 bolt disc, Spokes are DT Swiss.
Take your choice of rim color and size 26" or 29" (granted that I have stock in them)
Wheels are shipped to you free of charge. See the attached picture for colors.

Please be honest and submit only your own work. Second note there is only one prize for first only.

Thanks and good luck.

Just 1 submission per person?

Cool!

I had a dig and most of my good pics of this event got corrupted from a CD gone bad. I had no other back up.

But I found this, with a wee tweak!

World Championship 4-cross!

I hope we get some more pictures to choose from. Anything goes as long as it has a bike in it. Who doesn't want to win a free set of wheels?
