Competition: Win an Osprey 2012 calendar

Competition: Win an Osprey 2012 calendar

Yes it’s January, yes the weather’s grim but it’s also a new year, and we’ve got 12 months of non-stop mountain biking ahead of us. So cheer up, alright?

To celebrate the new year we’ve got 10 calendars from backpack manufacturer Osprey to give away. Each month features a great riding shot, including some Osprey-sponsored athletes like Tracy Moseley and Thomas Schmitt, plus plenty of space to pencil in events, races and group rides.

All you need to do to enter is tell us…

Q: What are you looking forward to most in the mountain bike world this year?

You can either post your answers in the comments box below or the forum thread here.

The closing date is Wednesday January 11 at 4pm. Winners will be announced shortly after.

    And of course watching the Olympic Mountain biking!! That should be epic! :-)

  6. Dick Barton

    Just riding my bike more…last year was a disaster in terms of biking and Iv’e gone backwards so this year is a year of rediscovery! (Or it better be as this biking malarky is costing me a small fortune for remaining stationary!)

  7. wobbem

    I should win a calendar because there are so far only 5 comments and there are 11 calendars and Tracy Moseley is rather nice.

    I am looking forward to doing more mountain biking, getting fitter, and subsequently quicker on my favourite singletrack. The faster I go the more adrenalin rush I get. I am also looking forward very much to the Olympic Mountain Biking event and trying the course out for myself at some point.

  21. Andrew

    that buzz of meeting someone you don’t know on a trail, and that fun pitting your skills against them, followed by the obligatory chat at the end, as we’re friendly folk when all is said and done?!

    Oh, and the illicit purchases of bike goodies you have to sneak past your partner: “these tyres? No, had them ages darling, honest”

  22. Bob

    I am excited to get outside and explore some new trails.

  23. Paul Harrison

    Danny Hart dominating and the look on the competition’s faces as they start to ponder ‘Is it time to pack it all in?”
