The Club Ciclistico Coglioni tipping competition is like no other tipping contest. You give me $10 and you get a team of 9 randomly(ish) allocated riders in your team. Depending on where they finish on each day/stage you get some points. The person with the most points after 3 weeks wins $180. Just to mess with you, there are 2 redraws, one on each rest day. So even if you get a rubbish team for week one, you might be back in the game on week 2 or 3. To keep it fun there are a number of prizes on offer throughout the race as well.

It’s not really about the prizes though. In 2015 we had 229 people taking part allowing me to make fantastic donations to charities. 2013 saw around $1600 go to PMH, 2014 more than $1000 went to PMH and $1017 to Save the Children and 2015 close to $3500 to PMH and Save the Children. I would like to continue with these donations. If you are entering feel free to enter a charity team as well, as they may win the big prize.
