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. In the next 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!

Your fourth challenge: rewrite a lyric from The King (Elvis, obviously) and make it cyclocross-related for the CrossVegas Elvis impersonator.

A bit about our Elvis: Elvis is Paige Poole, famous for his reworking of The King’s classic (nice YouTube here of the original) “Viva CrossVegas” that he’s sung every year since 2007.  He modified the lyrics a couple of years ago as he learned more about cyclocross so now there’s even a line about Clif Bars.  We’re sure the The King would approve.

Last week’s winner for the Chamoic Butt’r description was MichaelShearer with  the best embrocation story: “Bend Oregon Halloween cross crusade @ Deschutes Brewery. First timer(me) decides to apply embro, THEN put on bib shorts. Forest fire. Post race relaxation in hotel hot-tub. Double amputee. Be careful out there folks.”

So many great responses—keep ‘em coming!

Weekly winners will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges (Brook Watts, CrossVegas Promoter; Andrew Yee, Cyclocross Magazine Publisher; Molly Hurford, Cyclocross Magazine Managing Editor). If you enter 9 of the 10 contests in the next 10 weeks, you’ll be eligible for the random draw at the end of the contest for the Grand Prize, which includes a CrossVegas jersey signed by the race winner. The field includes current World Champion Sven Nys, so you can place your bets on who will be signing it …

10 Weekly Prizes will Include:

  • VIP CrossVegas Ticket
  • 1 Tube of Chamois Butt’r (Choice of Original, Her’ or Eurostyle)
  • 1 Bottle Eurostyle Sports Skin Wash
  • 1 Bottle Eurostyle Sports Kit Wash

The Grand Prize:

Boulder Colorado artist Zach Lee of Zach Lee Designs comes up with another stunning CLIF® Bar CrossVegas jersey design produced by Vermarc Sportswear.  2013 is the sixth year Lee has contributed the winner's jersey design and with this year's version he gives a nod to the retro design of the past with bold diagonal lines as well as acknowledging the time-honored racer superstition of pinning the number 13 upside-down.
