Love the Tour de France? Love Poetry? Then you'll love my Tour poetry comp - #tdf133.

In 133 characters or less (140 characters minus the #tdf133 hashtag), sum up the stage you just watched with all the creativity you can muster, use #tdf133 and enter via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. (You can enter also by posting on Tourdecouch Facebook page.)

I choose a winner for each stage right up to the cobbles on the Champs-Elysees.

All stage winners are finalists and then it's over to cycling social media pundits to vote for the final GC podium places.

Entries for each close about 12 hours after the stage you watched live finishes (or half that time if you watched a replay).

Again, not sure about prizes but who knows. 

Check out last year's podium places here and all the finalists here.
