21 pairs of Specialized Optics to give away
This year we are giving away a pair of glasses to the manager with the highest stages points every day of the Tour. Five have been won so far. Watch the Tour de France this summer and you won't see Specialized sponsored racers like Gerolsteiner's Levi Leipheimer or Davitamon-Lotto's Fred Rodriguez spinning up Alpine ascents with their glasses tucked in the front of their helmets or wrapped around their necks. Nope, in the 16 gram Arc model, Specialized engineers have created a pair of glasses so light and, thanks to their Adaptalite lenses, so versatile, that the world's top racers usually forget they even have them on. These are just some of the great prizes on offer in this year's game.
There are over 49 prizes in this year's game. Be a professional team manager for the 2005 Tour de France. Based on the live racing action, you will take up the challenge of using your knowledge and tactical skill as a race team manager to compete with managers from around the world. Follow the races live and use your skill and knowledge to win prizes.
First prize - a TREK Madone Discovery Team bike (opens in new tab) worth $7700 USD.
