Challenge the Tour de France professionals on the PowerBarTour
Ever dreamed of riding the Tour de France? A lot of us like to pretend we're racing for the yellow jersey when we're out on our Sunday morning ride, or the polka dots whenever we summit a hill.
With PowerBar you can now challenge other such dreamers around the world to win some great prizes, as well as a chance to get one over on the professionals.
The boys at the BMC Racing Team have joined forces with PowerBar to provide some competition over the three weeks of the Tour, which has started at an electrifying pace.
As well as the likes of Taylor Phinney and Marcus Burghardt are a couple of veteran Tour riders and Paralympians, as well as, strangely, two biathletes.
Don't worry, you don't need to carry a gun on your back like those two fellas, but you do have to sign up on the PowerBar website and record your rides on Strava to be in with a chance of winning some prizes.
After stage four, the leading rider in terms of distance is Dirk Maertens, who has clocked up an impressive 502km already, while Felix Diegelmann leads the ascending leaderboard, with 3,000 metres climbed.
If you ride the longest distance on a particular day, you will win a Rapha jersey. Easy as that.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up and get out on your bike!
