*This contest has now closed, but you still have a little time to buy tickets for Wakestock before they sell out. Thanks to everyone who entered, and congratulations to Will Ellis who guessed closest to the correct answer of 4500, with 4391. Good effort!*

Wakestock is only two weeks away, and as a very special treat from Alliance and Wakestock we’re giving you the chance to win a pair of Rider VIP camping tickets to Wakestock!

Unless you’re an athlete riding at the festival, or are best mates with one of the riders then you normally wouldn’t have a hope in hell of getting hold of these tickets. Alliance are running the only competition where you have a chance of winning Riders VIP camping tickets – the lucky winner gets to pitch their tent with the pros on site, hang out all weekend in the VIP area, and enjoy all the fun of the festival for free!

To honour the summer festival complete with candy floss and rollerskating rink, we have styled the contest around the school fete favourite of guess how many sweets in the jar. There was a slight problem when we kept eating the sweets and couldn’t keep track of how many were left so we have a different question that is actually related to the event. The winner of this one-off prize is the person who guesses the closest answer to the following question:

How many nuts and bolts does it take to build the Wakestock Pool Gap?

To enter, just write your guess in the comments section below and make sure you sign in with your facebook account so we can contact you if your answer is correct. The contest runs throughout the weekend and we will pick a winner at midday next Monday June 25th.

To help you make an educated guess, watch this video of last years Pool Gap winner, Mitch Langfield. Remember both pools and the platform with the rails are all part of the build,  so think big.

Remember folks, the closest answer wins, and make sure to sign in with your facebook account otherwise we can’t contact you if you win!
