Submissions have now come to a close, and we’ve read some truly inspiring stories. More than 300 people submitted, and we had a hell of a time sorting through and narrowing it down to just 1 lucky winner. We had Moms submitting for sons, girlfriends submitting for boyfriends, and even friends submitting for friends. It was these selfless acts are what helped us make our final decision. “Read More” to see the winning entry. With the support of a bunch of riders in his community, we chose Sacramento native Francis Roque as the winner for our New Bike For a New Year Giveaway. He’ll receive a Small Specialized PFIX as well as a limited edition Wheel Talk T-Shirt. His submission spoke a lot to us, and his friends entries for him said even more. I can’t wait to see his progression now that he’ll have a bike built to withstand a beating. Thanks to everyone who entered, and shared their story with us. This definitely won’t be the last time we hold a contest like this.
