The Didn’t Get What You Wanted $500 Gadget Giveaway Results!

Last week I held the “You Didn’t Get What You Wanted $500 Gadget Giveaway”.  It was an opportunity 5,289 of you with perhaps good intentioned, but uncalibrated loves ones, that didn’t get you the gadget you wanted over the holidays, to obtain your desired gadget lust.  Or, just a chance to win some good ol’ fashioned free stuff!

As is usually the case, I hopped over to my lovely friend,, and stuck in the total number of entries:


Then it was back to the post to find #4717:


Congrats Terry!  You’re the winner of $500 bucks of gadget awesomeness, which it sounds like you’ll put towards the Favero Assioma pedals. Good choice (especially with the recent price reduction)!

As for everyone else?  Well, you can still go buy some 2019 gadget love for yourself from Clever Training, and you’ll still save 10% via cash or points on basically everything they sell, unless it’s already on some sort of big sale.  From GPS watches to trainers to power meters, and even gel packets. Underwear too.  And for those in Europe, you could also simply use Clever Training Europe which includes free Europe shipping on many items plus the usual DCR 10% savings.  Thanks to them for the giveaway, and everyone for the support!

Have a great 2019 ahead folks!

P.S. – A number of you have asked about that ugly sweater design above. Here ya go!

    This is so great. Thank you so much for your reviews, for your equipment guidance and for your humble sense of humour. I really have appreciated it over the years!
    Thank you you of course for the prize. It has topped off a pretty good year!
    Please let me know how to claim. I’m assuming an email is on its way?
    Thanks again keep up the great work!

    Congratulations Terry.
    What Ray didn’t tell you was that once you get the pedals- you need to post your FTP here for everyone to make fun of. Sorry- it’s just part of the deal.


  3. Terry Lazarou

    Ha! morey. Didn’t you see Ray’s review of The Sufferfest app. FTP is dead, you know, long live 4DP. Once I figure out how to claim this amazing prize, I may show some metrics ;)

  7. Mike Barro

    How about another fenix 5? One can’t have too many, right?

    Congratulations to the winner. Looks like you already have a helmet and and pair of glasses, so a pair of pedals will come in handy if you want to go cycling.
