You’ll also have the chance to win some great DNA-powered products from the Helix Store!

Grand Prize Package

Specialized Pro Tour Experience

This prize package might not make you as fast as a pro, but you’ll certainly feel like one! Specialized has you covered from head to toe with this Pro Tour experience that includes the new S-Works Tarmac SL6—a machine that breaks all the traditions of design to create the fastest race bike for all conditions. And to ensure the winner has just the right setup, they’ll receive a custom Retul Bike Fit, just like the pros get before the start of their racing season. Rounding out the package, the winner will receive Specialized’s top-of-the-line shoes (S-Works 7) and helmet (S-Works Evade). After that, the pedaling is up to you.

21 Daily Prizes*

Specialized S-Works Evade


From our friends at Specialized:

Helmets have long been plagued by an unspoken rule: Lightweight, ventilation, aerodynamics—pick two, there’s your helmet. As you can tell by now, though, we don’t play by these rules—or really any for that matter. We’d rather turn standards on their head and create products that nobody ever dreamed of. And you needn’t look any further than the new S-Works Evade helmet for proof of this. Straight up, it’s the fastest road helmet out there.

Garmin Edge® 520


From our friends at Garmin:

Here’s Your Competitive Edge

We started with the aerodynamic form factor of the popular Edge 500, added in-ride challenges on Strava live segments, color display, connected capabilities and advanced analysis features. The result — Edge 520, the GPS bike computer that’s right-sized for competitive cyclists and packed with the features you crave.
