I'm all about some Vegas buffets, so a "Surf&Turf" Clif Builder's Bar. Packed with prime rib and shrimp flavored pieces and 20grams of protein!
Win a Chamois Butt’r Swag Bag and CrossVegas VIP Ticket by Entering Our Contest: Results and Week 6 Question
CLIF® Bar CrossVegas, Chamois Butt’r and Cyclocross Magazine have teamed up to give you 10 chances to win a CrossVegas and Chamois Butt’r swag bag, and a chance at our grand prize. For 10 weeks, we’ll have weekly contests for the prize packs, and at the end of the 10 weeks, one of our winners will be selected at random for the grand prize, so make sure you enter every week for a chance to win big! We’re five down, five to go: halfway to CrossVegas!
Your sixth challenge: Most Vegas-like flavor for a CLIF Bar product? (Think Mai-Tai flavored Shot Gels, etc.)
Last week, you were tasked with creating an obstacle for the CrossVegas course, and the winner was IthacaGP with: “How about a scale model of all of the hotels on the strip lining both sides of a section of the course? This would need to be complete with lights (of course), and in the case of the Bellagio, a fountain in front… Treasure Island’s ship, the Eiffel Tower from Paris… Fire(works) would rock. At one end a machine should fling dollar bills into the air like a grab box for racers. At the other end Wayne Newton should be serenading all of our Euro friends. Of course some would prefer Celine Dion but we’re not here to judge.”
Lastly, will Week 3′s winner Michael Shearer also get in touch by emailing molly [at] cxmagazine.com so we can get your prize shipped out?
So many great responses—keep ‘em coming!

Entitled the "Forget-Me-Not" CLIFF bar because you might not want to talk about what happened in Vegas (unless you podiumed), but you won't want to forget it...the trick is to eat these before losing consciousness. Containing sub-PED levels of caffeine, chocolate, and coconut these babies will revive you for race day (because we assume you never slept), primed to take the hole shot...or ride through the course tape 'cause you're still not quite sobered up.
a "fruit punch" version of shot bloks, starting with hope, then sorrow, then hope, then sorrow, then two of regret at the end.
A box of Mystery Clif shots; random flavors ranging from leafy greens and sweet tasty fruits to dirt and vomit, all of which are totally unlabeled! Never know what taste you're going to have in your mouth by the end of the night, roll the dice and hope you get lucky!!
Lake Mead flavor Cliff shot electrolyte drink mix. With all of the minerals and nutrients that the Mojave has to offer.
Maybe I'm too much of a fan of Hunter S. Thompson (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas), but a 'cross race might be pretty ridiculous with a combination of gels and bars made from/flavored with "two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls"
To borrow from Hunter S. Thompson: "['Cross is like] a high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, too rare to die."
Three Vegas Inspired Products:
1. Dirty Martini Shot Gel (cross is dirty, martini is vegas): Dirty Martini usually includes a shot of Olive Brine, or Olive Juice... so yummy, an Olive Martini flavored shot gel...
2. Dusty Cactus Energy Bar: agave, cactus fruit, cinnamon (dust), tumble weed, all the energy and nutrients you need for surviving the desert...
3. Vegas Magic Shot Recovery Drink: You had an awesome night, old friends, new friends, luck was on your side across the board -- but today it's time to ride -- and you're hung-over like a dog. No worries, the magic hangover curing potion from Cliff Bar will get you ready to roll... nutrients, electrolytes, enzymes, antioxidants and even a little anti-nausea...
Go big or go home, why not for a speacial edition clif block pack, put 7 ocks into a package to represent Lucky 7's. and cherries are found on almost found on every slot, so how about a cherry (maybe a cherry martini flavor). Or not sure if this is possible, do random flavores in a pack?
Call it the "Viva CX Vegas" shot. It has gold flakes (think of goldschlager), takes like champagne and is infused with the stuff that make pop rocks go boom - so you get a gold champagne energy shot that finishes with firecracker like sensations. Make sure it has caffeine to complete the spectrum ...
The Las Vegas Clif bar would be, the state flower, sage. The state nut, pine. Mesquite flour is the most amazing power-full fuel. Dates from china ranch. A lottery golden ticket will have various prizes, hotel, shows, rental bikes etc.
