    Help me win a full wardrobe of Gore-Tex? Please and thank you!

    Hey guys, I'm a finalist in a photo contest with Gore-Tex through their facebook page... I'm one of 9 finalists in the 'public voting' portion of the contest. Voting is this week, and ends on Friday. You can vote once every 24 hours. The contest theme is "fear no weather" and I'm the only bike represented

    If you're on facebook... help a rider out?

    Here is a link to my photo, all you have to do is go here and then click on my pic and "vote." One lucky voter wins Gore-Tex stuff too, so you might as well vote just for that! Link:
    https://www.facebook.com/GORETEXna/app/448952861833126/

    Thanks! Here's my pic:

    Edit: Fixed the link (I think?)

    In case anyone is wondering, it won't let you vote if you don't have a Facebook account.

    Good luck with the voting.

    I voted, you owe me cash.

    I was vote #224 for you. The next person had 80 votes and the one after that had 10. Good luck!
    You change your own flats? Support your LBS and pay them to instead.

    Done and shared, hope you get some gore-tex goodies!

    I had to click a bit to find the voting page. Maybe this link? https://www.facebook.com/GORETEXna/?...1833126&rest=1

    You should be disqualified for depicting snow riding on a non-fat-bike.




    I'm kidding. Voted. I think.

    I'll take a reputation hit to win a full wardrobe of Gore-Tex. Priorities

    Voting is live until Friday, and you can vote once every 24 hours. So if you voted at noon yesterday, you can't vote again until 12:01 today. Ends at midnight on Friday.

    Not sure what time Zone it's based in... you'll have to sort that out yourself if you're in Europe

    Actually I proposed a trade: You give me positive rep, I give you a vote

    But I voted already and I cant give you any - since I have to spread around before I give it to you again.

    Edit: I have given out too much - have to try later.

    If you can win a photo contest with some random fork mounted GoPro shot of your foot, more power to you! It's not exactly an Ansel Adams.

    I was going to vote but some of those other pictures were pretty good... Nah, I voted for you. Will again tomorrow.

    ^^ Canoe guy is my nemisis

    Bedwards, my right foot is no stranger to stardom:

    yeah no idea why they chose that pic... I submitted several, and when I got the email that I was a finalist, I assumed it was this one:

    Help me win a full wardrobe of Gore-Tex? Please and thank you!-screen-shot-2016-01-06-9.11.18-am.jpg

    I thought it was better... I also submitted a selfie-kinda photo of riding in the snow when it was a full on blizzard and you could see down the icy road behind me...super cool, but no love on that one either.

    All I can figure is that they cropped everything to a "portrait" kind of layout, rather than a "landscape"... not sure why other than maybe they wanted something store-poster worthy... dunno. My oddball foot picture is still hopefully better than canoe guy

    That's funny. Better buy that foot an insurance policy. I like the one of you zooming down the snowy road better too.

    Yeah, it was a mobile thing. Done. Voted. It kept wanting to put that I voted on my FB page, which was annoying, but it's not on mine and I voted so everyone wins.

    Voted. And posted to Facebook. Maybe more votes there? While most of the low rear shots are boring ( I don't have one from a snow ride). I like this alomsot home with the sun lowering:

    Sweet!! Bedwards, way to orient your monitor in 'portrait' mode to better emphasize the awesomeness of my photo If I win I owe you a (photo of a) Gore-Tex item.


    So I re-read the contest rules yesterday, and it turns out the voting window is open for 2 weeks, not just one... so you all get to enjoy my pestering for another week
    thanks for the help so far... I'm in the lead, but I'm worried these other guys are going to mobilize their friend armies any second... One lady jumped 80 votes between last night and this morning.

    Does anyone on here belong to a cycling related facebook group they could share with? Local club? Anything? Being the only bike in the contest I think I have a target audience...

    Thanks for the help!! Remember you can vote every 24 hours...here's that link again:

    Done. Cats and dogs on the way home tonight. Rivers running downhill and over the curbs. I would have been cold if not for the rainjacket, raincap (make sure they give you a cap), and 1000' elevation gain.

    Looking out the window this morning I couldn't help but think... man I wish I had a full wardrobe of Gore-Tex

    It was a sloppy, slush-crushing ride as this turned to rain down in the valley.


    One more day!! Please vote again!! I can almost taste it...

    Passed 1000! My lead is almost at 500... I confess to checking out the Gore Bike Wear catalog online I wonder if they will let me pick, or just have a pre-determined product that they'll give me. ...assuming I win...

    I think you can be glad when they ask you which size you have :-)

    Do you know what items are included? Rainjacket/pants only, or also a t shirt, bibs, cap, helmet/shoe covers? Socks?

    ^^ No idea. The fine print says "head to toe Gore-Tex" and "approximate value $800" ...

    Final push here... 500 vote lead. I may be able to sit up and wave to the crowd for the final kilometer

    Yeah waiting on the "official" email, but I totally won! The fine print gives them lots of time to determine and inform the official winner, so not sure when that actually happens...but I killed it by something like 500 votes. Whoop! Thanks for the votes guys.

    Woohoo! Hope no unseen Truman bumps you out tomorrow, Mr Dewey

    Since I`m so full of cheery thoughts this morning...
    Did it actually say value of $800 or value up to $800? I got to thinking about the significance of your foot there. Wardrobe from head to toe, but with only one toe actually pictured and no head, maybe they`ll just send you a lovely right shoe cover.

    Bwaahaa! Nah, you done good with that contest, CB. Congratulations, and I`ll be looking forward to seeing what kind of goodies they send your way.

    Does Gore stuff fit you? I've never tried any of it personally.

    I know if I won 800 bucks worth of Giro I'd return it all. I'm like 2 for 10 in finding things they make that fit me.
    You change your own flats? Support your LBS and pay them to instead.
