For those loyal readers who were around last year, you’ll remember the massive Giveaway Extravaganza I launched last year about this time. Normally when I do a traditional giveaway, I giveaway a single item and the entry period lasts a few days or so. But with the Extravaganza style, it’s sorta like a Woot-off. Which means that I’m giving away one item at a time, but the entry period only lasts three hours for each item!
Last year I gave away a slew of items. It was a mixed collection of new items, and items that companies didn’t want back from reviews (I don’t keep any items post-review). This year though, it’s all new items. The giveaway is sponsored by both myself and Clever Training. We’re going splitsies on it!
Except this year, we’re going big. Really…really…really big. About $5,000 worth of giveaway items big. I’m pretty much taking the most popular items that I know you want to have – and giving them away. Of course, telling you what those items are would take away half the fun! Well, at least my fun.
Thus you’ll want to set whatever alarm clocks you need, to ensure you’re ready to start pouncing at 12:00AM Eastern Time. I suggest repeating alarms for every 3 hours.
You’ll need to follow the entry instructions for each giveaway you’ll enter throughout the day (essentially just leaving a comment). Every three hours on the dot, a new giveaway will appear (and the previous one will close). To sum up, it’ll work like this:
12:00AM US Eastern on Wednesday– First giveaway begins! 3:00AM US Eastern – First giveaway closes, second giveaway opens! 6:00AM US Eastern – Second giveaway closes, third giveaway opens…
…and on and on every three hours until midnight! For those not familiar with US timezones, here’s a handy-dandy page to help you figure out what time it is there. Of course, all international readers are welcome to enter and win – that’s just how I roll.
My only hint is that almost everything I’m giving away tomorrow has been launched this year. Crazy huh?
Get ready to rumble! And thanks for reading and supporting the blog!

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
