Another Cavendish book giveaway?

Mark Cavendish has inspired me to give another copy of his Boy Racer book away. Should I hold off until next week or should I go ahead and do another giveaway today? Let me know what you think. I’m also open for new contest ideas, especially ones that maximize benefit (i.e. hits and links) for Cyclelicious. Do you like “first with the correct answer”? Or should I just go with a random drawing?

2010 Tour de France Stage 6 photos below with spoilers.


Before the Stage Six race start this morning, Fabian Cancellara clowns around with a guy on an old bike and telephone. Is this the future of bike team communications?

    Right now I'm inclined to go with random drawing. Comment on the blog is worth an entry, a Tweet is worth another entry. (but don't enter yet — I haven't started the contest)

    …i'd suggest the winner can only come from a person who's had the avatar “bikesgonewild” for a number of years…

    …limited number of contestants ???…well, ya, sure…

    …impartial ???…well, hmmm. maybe not so much…

    …but it does guarantee a high rate of enthusiasm by the winner…
