The terms and conditions are set out in more detail below. To enter the competition, all that is required is to complete the registration form on the website www.soudal.com/vip.
SOUDAL nv/sa, with registered office at Everdongenlaan 18-20, BE-2300 Turnhout, will organise a competition that starts on 01/03/2019 and ends on 06/07/2019. The competition will be open to any adult with the exception of employees, agents and representatives of SOUDAL nv/sa, who may not enter the competition.
The competition will be held in the participating countries mentioned later in these terms and conditions. Participants may enter for free via the site www.soudal.com/vip. No purchase will be required to enter the competition.
The competition will be supervised by SOUDAL nv/sa. SOUDAL nv/sa will make any official rulings which are necessary to ensure that the competition is run fairly. The decisions of SOUDAL nv/sa will be irrevocable and may not be contested.
The competition’s top prize will be a duo VIP ticket for the final day of the Tour de France 2019 in Paris, OR the Vuelta 2019 in Madrid OR the Giro d’Italia 2020 in Rome. There will be a total of three winners, one for each Grand Tour. The prize may not be transferred to another person or exchanged for cash.
The competition question and the tie-breaker question will be asked before the participant is asked to complete his/her personal details on the site www.soudal.com/vip . For an entry to the competition to be valid, the form and personal details must be fully completed and the competition question and tie-breaker question must be answered. The competition may only be entered via the website.
Only correct and fully completed entries (form + competition question + tie-breaker question) will be treated as valid entries to the competition.
The competition will run from 01/03/2019 until 11.59 pm on 06/07/2019. One draw will take place per participating city and per duo ticket to be won in this period; the draws will take place on 10/07/2019.
The dates for the draws and the final competition entries will be as follows: 1) Determination of winners: from 10/07/2019; 2) Competition entries: until 11.59 pm (GMT+1) on 06/07/2019.
During the competition, the number of entries will be limited to one per postal address or person; only one prize per participant may be awarded. The first entry will count as the valid entry.
The competition question will be as follows: ‘Which product are the cyclists using in the video?’
The tie-breaker question will be: ‘What time will the Lotto Soudal cyclists record in the Tour De France team time trial on 7 July 2019? (Hours, Minutes, Seconds)’
After the competition, the answers to the competition question and tie-breaker question that are closest to the correct answer will be deemed to be the winning answers. The closest figure higher than the correct answer will take precedence over an equally close figure lower than the correct answer. SOUDAL nv/sa will choose a number of winners from these winning answers on the basis of their (closest) answer to the tie-breaker question (see Article 10). In the event of a tie, the time of receipt by SOUDAL nv/sa of the form with the answer to the tie-breaker question will be decisive: whoever sent the form first will have the advantage.
The answer to the tie-breaker question will be determined by SOUDAL nv/sa, and will only be relevant for correct and fully completed forms that have been submitted by the stated time for each competition (see Article 8) via the website www.soudal.com/vip.
Each winner will be contacted personally by email by SOUDAL nv/sa. Participants who do not win will not be contacted.
SOUDAL nv/sa accepts no liability for any problem that is directly or indirectly, partially or wholly the consequence of circumstances outside its control that seriously impede or render impossible the execution of its commitments. In such cases, the winners will be informed of this in writing.
The organisers reserve the right to change these rules unilaterally at any time or to cancel the competition in the event of force majeure or any other event outside their control.
No written or verbal communication will take place about the competition rules.
