The Kona Adventure and Cyclocross Teams merge for 2020, forming the all-new Kona Endurance Team. From lung-busting gravel grinds, or mountain biking in places they’ve never heard of, to a full season of domestic ‘cross, gravel and marathon racing, they’re ready to dig in, ride hard, and capture all of the excitement that can be found on two wheels.

Kerry Werner on his way to winning the Pro CX series for the second year in a row!

The Kona Endurance Team is made up of Kona veterans that know exactly what it takes to make the most of every adventure. Team ringleader Barry Wicks is back with a full agenda of rides all across North America and the world, along with three-time 24hr World Champ Cory Wallace. The dynamic ‘cross-dominating duo of Kerry Werner and Rebecca Fahringer will be joining the party in 2020.

Rebecca Fahringer had an epic season winning the Pro CX series and riding to second place that the US Nationals in Washington State.

Together the four riders make up a crew that is champing at the bit to push the limits of where bikes can go, how hard they can be ridden, and how much fun is actually possible while inflicting what seems to mere mortals like some sort of self-induced punishment.

Just thinking about a Cory Wallace ride will make most people tired. In 2019 he not only won his third consecutive World Solo 24hr World Championship but he also broke his own record for completing the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. We can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeves for 2020!

Where will they travel? Only time will tell, but we get the feeling they’ll be crossing many a mountain pass, bikepacking to locations that seem impossible to reach, racing the races that scare most people, and leaving dusty contrails in their wakes as often as possible. If it sounds like a challenge, this crew is up for it.

Now in his 17th year with Kona, there is not much Barry Wicks hasn’t done, but in 2020 he’ll sure as hell try!
