Our VeloVixen 2015 Next Top Model competition is now closed. Click here to see the results

A year ago, we launched our first VeloVixen Next Top Model competition. Elle Linton (above), the personal trainer and blogger, won it thanks to her distinctive and striking looks, positive energy, experience on a bike and... frankly, just brilliant hair!

You'll have seen Elle featuring in our blogs, tweets, posts, newsletters and catalogues ever since. It was a really fun day.

We had such a great response to the competition - and such great photos of Elle - that we're doing it again. Shouldn't you be entering this time (by August 23rd)?! Don't worry if you entered last year - we're keen to hear from anyone who's interested, no matter what your look, shape, age, colour or creed!

What we will be looking for isn't complicated:

  1. A natural ease in front of the camera;
  2. A passion for cycling;
  3. Loads of energy and a sense of fun.

We're planning the photoshoot for mid September, so you'll need to be available for a mid week day in the Oxford area. We'll be showing off a good selection of the products we'll be selling in the coming few months.

The winner will receive:

  • A full day's VeloVixen photoshoot as a small group of 3-4 'vixens', shot by a top photographer;
  • £100 VeloVixen vouchers;
  • Travel expenses;
  • Food and drinks for the day.


To enter, all you'll need to do is email us at contact@velovixen.com entitled 'VVNTM', including:

  1.  1-4 photos of you looking at your cycling best!
  2. In not more than 20 words: 'why I'd make a great face of VeloVixen'

We can't wait to receive your entries!


To give you a flavour of what you could be in for, here are some of Elle's highlights from last year...


And the winnerS are...


In the end, we were genuinely so spoiled for choice that we simply couldn't narrow it down, so we chose these three lovely ladies. In each case, we loved their uniqueness, sparkle, evident love of cycling and energy.

We had dozens of entries and ended up spending an entire morning sitting here in VV HQ wrangling over who it should be. It was a real challenge, and what a luxury to have so many potential winners to choose from.

Each of you winners will have a full day's shooting with us, plus £100 in VV vouchers to spend. Thank you all for making the effort to enter, and for spoiling us with your brilliant photos and words. We're now really looking forward to September's shoot and we reckon the results will be worth seeing...

(By the way, here are just a few of the reasons it was so hard to decide!)
