USA Pro Challenge Most Respectful Superfan Contest

Part of what makes cycling such an amazing sport to watch is that fans can be so close to that action, but this is also what makes the sport dangerous for racers and spectators alike. We’ve all seen the results when fans and racing mix in the wrong ways. Dogs on course, spectators taking selfies as the peloton passes, costumed fans running alongside race leaders: lapses in judgment both large and small have created situations in which fans and racers have been injured, seasons have been ended, and race outcomes have been altered.

In conjunction with the exclusive coverage we have planned on our Twitter page, we will also be hosting a Most Aggressive Rider jersey giveaway, which we are calling the “Most Respectful Superfan Contest”.

FirstBank’s sponsors the Most Aggressive Rider jersey as a way to encourage and reward aggressive racing. This makes an already great event even more exciting for the fans. With the Most Respectful Superfan competition, we want to make cycling even better – and safer – for everyone, by calling attention to the responsibility and safety aspects of bike race spectating by rewarding fans who demonstrate that it’s entirely possible to have a great time while being respectful of the riders, the race, and fellow fans. To that end, we will be awarding three (3) replica Most Aggressive Rider jerseys, signed by winners of the competition, to the fans who best embody these ideals.

Prize Description

The grand prize will go to the fan, who we determine, has set the most exceptional example of respectful superfan behavior during the course of the USA Pro Challenge. Honorable mention prizes will be awarded to two runners-up. The winners will be selected by the FirstBank Marketing department, this will not be a random drawing so make sure you detail why you think your nomination is worthy of being crowned “The Most Respectful Superfan” in your post.
