CHAPEL HILL, N.C., July 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Performance Bicycle®, the #1 choice for people who love to ride, has partnered with Richmond Region Tourism to offer consumers the chance to win a trip to the UCI Road World Championships in Richmond. The winner and their guest will receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations, VIP passes to the race and more.
"The UCI Road World Championships is one of the most exciting cycling events taking place not only in America but around the world," said Performance Bicycle CEO David Pruitt. "This is an excellent chance for two cycling enthusiasts to get up close to the excitement of the Worlds."
Taking place Sept. 19-27, The Road World Championships (Worlds) is cycling's pinnacle event, held annually in an international city as chosen by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) through a competitive bidding process similar to the Olympic Games.
Worlds is a nine-day event, featuring 12 Championship races for Elite Men and Women, Under 23 Men and Junior Men and Women. It is a rare opportunity for the athletes to compete for their country, just as they do during the Olympic Games. Athletes compete in three different disciplines including the traditional Road Race, the Individual Time Trial and the recently introduced Team Time Trial. World Champions are crowned in each discipline.
"The Richmond Region is excited and honored to host the UCI Road World Championships and to collaborate with a partner like Performance Bicycle to demonstrate why we're a year-round cycling destination for all riders," said Jack Berry, Richmond Region Tourism President and CEO.
From now until August 16, anyone can enter to win by filling out the entry form at http://www.performancebike.com/Richmond2015 or on the Performance Bicycle Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/performancebike. One lucky winner and their guest will receive roundtrip airfare, three night stay at the Embassy Suites by Hilton – Richmond (Sept. 24-27), two VIP Race Passes, two passes to a VIP viewing party on the course at Capital Ale House, three days of rental car, three dinners and two passes to a local attraction.
No purchase necessary, and a purchase does not increase the chances of winning. The winner is responsible for all applicable taxes and any additional expenses (e.g., food and beverage, transportation to and from the airport.)
