PARK CITY, UT (BRAIN) — Competitive Cyclist will be giving away a Merlin Extralight road bike with SRAM Red components at the Tour of Utah, which starts Tuesday.
Competitive Cyclist, a Backcountry.com site, purchased Merlin in 2011. It announced at the 2013 North American Handmade Bicycle Show that it was returning it to production in Utah. The contest is open to anyone who visits the Competitive Cyclist booth at the Tour’s Lifestyle Expo, located at the finish of each stage.
In addition to the bike giveaway, Competitive Cyclist has signed on as presenting sponsor of the "1K to go" arches on all six stages of the Tour. Backcountry.com announced last week that it would be the presenting sponsor of the race's expo area.
For the stages finishing in Salt Lake City and Park City, cycling commentator Bob Roll will be a guest at the Backcountry booth for an “Ask Bobke” session where he’ll field questions submitted through the Backcountry.com Facebook page and those submitted at the Expo.
