Specialized & Cyclingnews "Whose Shoes?" Contest
Specialized Pro Carbon 04
During the 2004 Tour de France, Specialized and Cyclingnews offered
an opportunity to win some great new gear. Up for grabs were four pairs
of new Specialized
Carbon Road shoes.
Readers had to look a photo of a rider's shoes (on the rider and attached
to a bike, of course) and then guess the identity of the rider who was
wearing the Specialized shoes. In the competition, and if you were right,
you were entered to win.
In the third competition,
it was Giovanni Lombardi wearing the Specialized shoes and out of the
hat came the name of Ramin Bledsoe from Tempe, Arizona. Ramin said, "I
have been cycling since I was 15 (started to work in a bike shop) and
it has become part of my life (I am now 35).
"I participate in races, promote a few, and officiate in a few every
year through my club/team, Arizona State Cycling Team, a USCF, NORBA,
and Collegiate group of riders. Even though I work full time as an architect
and take a class or two at Arizona State University, I make riding a focus
to maintain my sanity, as well as my health. Racing is good for this and
I am looking forward to putting the shoes to good use."
The correct answer for competition #3 is C) Giovanni Lombardi.
