Contributor Contest: Submit a Race Report or Video, Win a KHS CX300 Cyclocross Bike!
Win this KHS CX-300 cyclocross bike!
Cyclocross Magazine’s goal is to provide compelling content for all cyclocrossers and cyclocross fans. As a tiny operation, one way we are able to do this is via race report and content submissions from the cyclocross community, from readers like you. We value covering local race scenes and individual perspectives, and although we can’t afford to have reporters in all areas, passionate cyclocrossers, photographers and videographers help us showcase cyclocross beyond the UCI-point chasing scene.
KHS Bicycles values Cyclocross Magazine’s community-contributed content, and has generously offered up its brand-new, race-worthy and versatile CX-300 cyclocross bike to handsomely reward one lucky contributor through the KHS Bicycles’ Contributor Prize contest. Feature your local race scene by submitting an original race report or original video, and this bike may be yours.
How does it work? From now through January 15, 2012, simply submit an original race report or video to shine the light on a race or your local race scene for your chance to win the Rival-equipped KHS CX-300, valued at $1799. It’s that simple. Represent your local scene, get kudos from your community and win this new bike as a reward!
Go the extra mile to include quotes, photos (with the photographer’s permission), videos, and race results for more chances to win. Reader favorites (as measured by views, Tweets, Facebook Likes) will receive extra entries, so show off your entry! Want to geek out and really impress us? Check out our race report tips. Enter as many times as you’d like to increase your chances of winning. See the official rules and instructions below.
