The #ChallengeChallenge Instagram Photo Contest is Closed

UPDATE 10.01.2016

We hope you all had a fun month of posting photos on Instagram for the #ChallengeChallenge contest. Ready to win some rad Challenge tyres? We hope so. We’ll be spending the next day or two going through all the shots and debating with each other which photos are the best. We’ll emerge from our dark and loud offices with some winners, and we’ll post them here.

If you have participated in the challenge, and hope to win some of the tyres, remember you’ll need to be a registered member of the web site. You will also need to be following these Instagram accounts to be eligible to win the tyres: @GritCX, @ChallengeTires and @PaligapCC.

Consider this your grace period to get your ducks in order.

We’ll check back in later this week.
