Mike Shannon is a 40-year-old father of four from Bellingham, Washington. He’s been an avid mountain bike rider for years, and juggles trail time with family responsibilities and law enforcement with the Bellingham Police Department. Three months ago, Mike entered a sweepstakes held by Easton Cycling for a chance to win a team-issue Kona Entourage, an all-expenses-paid trip to the Whistler Bike Park, and a day riding with star freerider Graham Agassiz. As luck would have it, Mike’s name was picked at random and his mountain bike life was changed forever. To get the inside scoop on why he’s luckier than you, click here.
