Thank you once again to all our readers who shared their Tour sock selfies and for all the effort that went in to take interesting, humorous and artistic photos.
We had hundreds of fantastic entrants once again from all around the world, causing a headache for our judges to pick just one winner.
After much deliberation we settled on this picture from @immyenglish taken from the Col duTourmalet which shows great quality, good composition and nice depth of field.
Tour 2019 Stage 14
Thibaut Pinot claimed his third stage win in the Tour de France after Porrentruy 2012 and L’Alpe d’Huez 2015 as he stormed to victory at the top of Tourmalet while Julian Alaphilippe, second on the line with a deficit of six seconds, retained the yellow jersey and extended his lead over Steven Kruijswijk and Geraint Thomas.
A second #toursockselfie was chosen at random and Tim Freeman was the lucky winner for this colour-pop photo in his polka dot socks.
Both winners will receive £100 and a 2-of-a-kind piece of Tour merchandise.
Here are our previous winners:
2018 judges choice:
2018 random selection:
Our 2017 judges selection: Andrew Hartley upside down in the Dolomites.
The 2017 random selection: Darren Lewis relaxing during a Mallorcan ride.
Our 2016 winner: John Foster tucking into Tour whilst cruising at 35000 feet.
So get your copy of Tour Magazine (on sale May 22) and don your new Tour socks, take a picture, share it on social and you could be in with a chance of winning.
