    "Efficiency" was the Stage 4 code. Also for that day, "Hammering" was the bicycling.com code.

    "Sprint" was the Stage 6 code and "First Class" was that day's Bicycling.com code.

    "Podium" was today's Stage 7 code and "Musette" was the Bicycling.com code.

    "Jet Inspired" was the Stage 8 code word. I didn't see anything on Bicycling.com, so perhaps they realized that they posted two codes yesterday.

    winners list

    per the official rules

    15. Winner List: Winner List requests will only be accepted after the promotion end date (midnight July 27th) and no later than October 31, 2008. For the Winner List, send an email with subject line: "E – Fly to the Finish, Winner List Request," to WinListRequests@eprizefulfillment.com.

    per the rules this is only open to the 50 United States and the District of Columbia.
    hopefully a winner will be posted that is close to somebody here so we can see if its real.

    the instant win game isnt even based on the chance of the spin, its based on a time.

    Instant Win Game: Thirty (30) random, computer-generated winning times, one per day for each prize listed below, will be generated during the Promotion Period. If you are the first player to play the Instant Win Game at or after one of the randomly generated times, you will be a potential instant winner of the prize indicated.

    so if the time for the day is 11 o'clock at night you dont even have a chance any time before that......

    Oh what trash. The wheel stopped on 'polka dot jersey and bike' for half a second then moved to the try again position.

    not a very fun contest

    They could give out more prizes or more free spins. I entered every single one of the valid codes today and didn't get anything, not even a free spin. I always hate these flash based spin things because they aren't truly random...there's a set spin number or login that awards prizes, otherwise they would be giving away too much stuff for free.

    "Sorry, Try Again"
    Insanity = Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result.
    Has anyone gotten anything playing the game? I'm 0-fer so far.

    once again, nothing

    2 more tries, 2 more fails. They could at least have some kind of secondary sweepstakes by having all your tries be thrown into a hat...

    I just want the Saab. A cervelo would be pretty nice, too, but the Saab is all I want. Entering every code word at once would be just fine to me.

    I watched Stage 10 several times and never saw the code word. Generally they put it up 2 or 3 times during the stage, but if they did that on Stage 10, I managed to miss it over and over and over! I wasn't ever watching without distraction, so maybe I did keep missing it--still, it seems to me unlikely; I'm wondering if they even had one that day. Or maybe they only put it up in the first couple of hours that morning--remember, that was one of those days where the first airing is really long and where later airings cut out the first couple hours of the first airing.

    probably the one that you could get the car for. they show it once during some boring commercial segment that most of us skipped.
