Sorry I didn't do this sooner! I had a quick sneak-away planned after the race; I went and visited my sister up in San Luis Obispo on Sunday. More on that later :)
So...drum roll.... contest winners!
Well there are two people who won; one guy and one girl (I hope), but there was a little confusion about the winners in general, which is my fault for not thinking about the potential outcomes and some logistical stuff. That said, there are actually THREE winners. Hopefully you'll understand why when I explain....
Zach, who predicted that Mirinda Carfrae would win in 4:23:33. Rinny's real win time was 4:26.
Daph (who I'm hoping is a girl, couldn't find more detail on her name), said that Andy Potts would win in 3:56:32. She was only 43 seconds off his actual finishing time!
Tri-James predicted that both Mirinda and Andy would win and was really close to Andy's time (1:56 off), thus the creation of a third prize category for predicting both the male and female winner correctly. Um, crap... I didn't really anticipate this issue when creating the contest, lol. Thankfully Nick of Ignis is very giving, as is Ron from PunkRockRacing. (Side note: In fact, another entrant also predicted Andy and Mirinda--you guys are smart!--but unfortunately we are sticking to "top three" for this contest and we chose this third winner based on who made the most accurate time prediction for either the male or female).
So now for the prizes.....
Our winners will get this RAD brand-new PunkRockRacing tote:
Along with an Ignis shirt (male and female, respectively):
Sorry for the ghetto pictures lol.
Now, all I need is contact info from Zach, Daph (please say you're a girl lol!) and Tri-James. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you everyone who entered and I hope to have more fun contests in the future!
