The time has come to hand out the victors' laurels, that is, blog buttons!
You may feel free to take one of the following (please remember to follow the instructions at the bottom of the post and save the button to your own server!):
1. The Prize for the Maillot Jaune (Yellow Jersey)
If you completed your goal, please take this button for your blog:
2. The Prix de la Combativité (Prize for Combativeness)
Okay, so you didn't make your goal. It happens. But did you give it your all? Did you try your best? Then please take this button:
When I first hosted the Tour de Fleece in 2006, I originally said there would only be a button for those who actually finished and achieved their goal. But while watching the Tour, I thought about that red dossard (the thing with the numbers that the riders wear on their backs) that's handed out at the end of each stage for the rider who was the most combative each day. And I thought it would be a good idea to offer it up to any of you who tried your level best but discovered that life got in the way, or that the goal you set was a bit more than you could handle. You didn't give up? You get a button, too.
Thanks to all who participated in the Tour this year!
To download a copy of a button to post on your blog or website, right-click on the one that you've earned and select "Save Target As..." or "Save Picture As..." from the pop-up menu (in Internet Explorer); in Firefox use "Save Link As..." or "Save Image As...".
For other browsers or operating systems (Mac, Linux, etc) the menu selection may be slightly different, but you should be able to find the corresponding choice without too much trouble.
Please do not link to the buttons on this site, download the file and post it to your own blog or website -- Thanks!
