UPDATE: Congrats to our winner, Whitney!
ORIGINAL POST: As you probably know, the Amgen Tour of California wheels into Clovis on Wednesday. It’s where the fourth stage of the state-wide cycle race winds down, with a finish line right in Old Town Clovis.
Anybody can go out and watch the end of the race, and enjoy the accompanying festivities in Old Town Clovis. Heck, organizers are pushing to make it a ditch day (Take the Day Off, they say). Not just anybody, however, can go where The Beehive is sending one lucky winner.
We’ve got a pair of passes to the VIP hospitality tent at the race’s finish line. It includes free food (from Save Mart and QN4U), free beer and the best seat you can get. In addition, our winner gets parking passes and tickets to the post-race party at the Clovis Rodeo Grounds.
Sounds pretty nice, right? Well, it could be yours. Just leave a comment below telling us your favorite story about taking the day off. Deadline to enter is 3 p.m. Tuesday. The winner will be chosen at random and will be notified by e-mail, so please leave a real e-mail address and check it. One entry per person. You’re ineligible if you’ve won something from us in the past 30 days. Complete rules after the jump.
