Kona designers picked Lacondeguy’s brain over the course of the last year to come up with a bike design that could live up to the talent and punishment.
The format is similar to the Kona Bristol Bikefest but adjusted to the time of year. For the 2009 event there will be the 10 hour enduro on Saturday followed by the 5 hour event on the Sunday. As an extra for the newcomers to endurance racing there will be the 3 hour long ‘Novice’ Endurance event which will also run on Sunday.

The 1st Kona Mash-Up event of the season is only six weeks away with entries coming in thick and fast. So far the entries are suggesting a fairly even spread between the two categories on offer which will make for interesting racing on the trails where everybody rides against everybody.
Cheese, Giro, Bell, Giant, Titus, Specialized, Alpkit, MobiWasher, DMR, Diadora, Cannondale, Bontrager, Mavic and Kona…
