Wiggle winners experience the Tour de France VIP treatment

Wiggle and Garmin ran a competition to offer two lucky Wiggle customers the trip of a lifetime… VIP tickets to watch a stage of the 2011 Tour de France.

Having bought a Garmin Edge 800 GPS Plus GB Discoverer 1:50 Trail Bundle from Wiggle, Daniel was selected as our winner and took along his friend Nigel to share his good fortune. We were delighted to hear that they had a fantastic time and will wax lyrical about their trip for years to come!

I would like to say a big thank you to Garmin and Wiggle for the trip to watch stage 17 of the Tour de France. This truly was the opportunity of a lifetime to watch the tour and we could not have asked for more. The helicopter ride is something that both of us very much enjoyed and will be talking about for some time to come.


The entire trip was perfectly planed and ran like clockwork. The whole day at stage 17 of the Tour de France was a continued high from the VIP area at the start and allowed to get up within touching distance of all the cyclists and their bikes, to then driving the course soaking up the atmosphere of the tour as people waved, shouted and threw water on us, to finally entering the VIP area at the finish and being able to get right up to the barrier to see the cyclists while members of the public must have been standing there all day to get a similar view.


Wiggle and Garmin also gave Nigel his first ever helicopter ride and was emphatic that he would remember the day for years to come. When it came to generating atmosphere, excitement and electricity, the Tour de France definitely delivered!

Daniel and Nigel would like to thank Greg and Andrea for driving them during their unique insight into the tour and Brandi for organising the helicopter ride and for the fantastic day in general!
