The limerick must have five lines with a rhyme scheme (AABBA). It can be serious or humorous. The use of extreme profanity or foul language is discouraged. However it is said that the perfect limerick has the suggestion of profanity, but never actually mentions it.

Email your limerick to TourdeFrancePoems@gmail.com
- the limerick
- your name and address (so we can send you the prize if you win)
- your Facebook name and your Twitter handle

A few limericks will be picked by the SMC staff as finalists and read each episode of the podcast throughout the Tour.On the final Tour episode, on July 25, the winners will be selected amongst all the finalists. Four authors (runner ups) will receive a special prize pack* with awesome Rapha and Bianchi gear. One author (winner) will receive a grand prize*.

Have fun, make them awesome and good luck to all!

*Prizes will be awarded based on the decisions and choices made by the Speed Metal Cycling staff and are final. Prizes will differ depending on availability.
