Female winners crush male competition for an off-road holiday


Between December and May, The Bike Insurer ran a competition to send a lucky winner on an off-road riding adventure in Spain.

Ten finalists made the shortlist and were asked to submit a video telling us why they deserved to be chosen ahead of the other finalists.

Because of the high quality of entrants, our judges were unable to pick just one winner… so picked three instead!

The lucky trio are Janet Ives, Launa Rowley and Rebecca Lloyd – all of whom impressed our selection panel with their enthusiasm and passion for riding.

And the prize is two days off-road riding at The Adventure Rider Centre in southern Spain.

For anyone querying why it’s an all female cast, the answer is that blokes are lazy and apparently a bit more camera shy than women.

And out of all the male applicants contacted, not a single one decided to take the opportunity to go on an all expenses paid trip to Spain to ride off-road.

We doubt they’d have beaten any of our winners anyway!

The Bike Insurer team will be there with our female winners, filming and photographing along the way, so stay tuned to see how they get on in the foothills of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range.

Take a look at their videos below to see why they were picked.
