4. Contest mechanism, evaluation of winners

To have a chance to win one of the prizes, the participants have to publish an Instagram post clearly showing their participation in the L’Etape du Tour Zwift ride tagged with #Ride2Unite. This post must be published during the contest time periods mentioned above. Only one post per person will count.

The evaluation of the winners will be held in the following way – the list of all suitable posts tagged with #Ride2Unite is created and exported in the chronological order of their publishing.

The winning post is the one on the aforementioned list of all suitable posts placed in the following position number- a number is created by putting the sum of all digits in the number of all suitable posts after a zero and this number is then multiplied by the number of all suitable posts..

If the position number isn’t a whole number, it will be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Example: Number of posts in the contest is 1699. 

0.(1+6+9+9) * 1699 = 424.74. The winning post is the one which positioned 425th.

The Contest Host will inform the winners via Instagram messages within five days after the appropriate Contest period ends and the winners will be asked to provide data necessary for handover or sending of the prize or for further communication.
