Yes, this news has been out for a few weeks, but it’s cool, so I’m going to post anyway. GT Bicycles is running their Golden Race Series promotion.  Show up at the first race on April 17, win, and you get to take home your choice of a gold full suspension, carbon fiber GT Marathon or hardtail Zaskar.  Click on the image above to enlarge and see the full bike specs.  Basically, it’s full XTR, carbon frame and everything’s gold…event the machined out rims.

How do you win it?  Take first place.  How do you keep it?  Win the next race.  And the one after that.  And so on.  You’ll have a leg up, though…you get the “Gold Diggers” cheerleading squad on the sidelines (picture after the break), a free flight to the next race with a buddy, hotel and VIP on-site treatment.

If you win, you have your choice of the the Marathon or the Zaskar.
