Sea Otter Classic

And the Winner is….

It’s time to announce the winner of the coveted Birthday Bike! The raffle from the Sea Otter classic has come and gone and we’re excited to announce the winner. A huge congratulations goes to Matthew Kurkjian of Moraga, California! It almost seems like the steel Honzo was made for him.

“Winning this bike means that my mountain biking is about to get launched to the next level! I have been riding a Frankenstein hard-tail single-speed for 5 years now (my first mountain bike). I dig steel, hardtails, 29ers, and I’ve always admired Konas in the bike shops.” When asked what he’s most looking forward to about the bike Kurkjian is quick to respond that he just wants to get to know the bike. “I’m most looking forward to naming her! And of course our first post-ride beer together (duh). My first Kona. It feels like I’m moving up in the world!”

From all of us at Kona, welcome to the Kona family, Matthew!
