ADV NewsCongrats to the Winner of Our 2020 Ultimate Adventure Giveaway

Congrats to the Winner of Our 2020 Ultimate Adventure Giveaway

See who's the lucky winner of our biggest giveaway of the year!

Published on 02.05.2021

The 2020 Ultimate Adventure Giveaway has come to an end and a winner has been selected! Thank you to everyone who participated. We’d like to congratulate our winner, Michael Zanon from Salem, Oregon. When he received the news he won the giveaway, Mike had a hard time believing it. “Honestly, I was a bit skeptical. Even though I remember entering the ADV Pulse sweepstakes, I’ve never won anything so I couldn’t believe it at first..Incredible!” Mike said.

Mike is the VP of sales for a technology solutions company that provides services to Justice and Public Safety agencies. He recently got back into motorcycles after a long hiatus and he currently owns a 2013 BMW R1200GS Adventure – 90th Anniversary Edition. Short-term he’s looking to ride the Oregon BDR and then branch out to the Colorado BDR, and perhaps one day he’d like to ride Patagonia in South America. “We can dream can’t we?,” says Mike.

As a fairly-new off-road rider, one of Mike’s goals is to improve his skills in the dirt. “Most of my off-road skills are self taught and I still have a LOT to learn.” He’s been a regular reader of ADV Pulse for some time now and has entered several of our past annual sweepstakes in hopes of winning.


As the winner of the giveaway, not only does Mike win a free all-inclusive RawHyde Off-Road Training weekend with a new BMW R1250GS rental included, but he also gets an Aether Divide Gore-Tex adventure suit, a set of GIVI Gravel-T GRT709 saddlebags, a new Shoei Hornet X2 dual sport helmet, a set of Cyclops Aurora 2-inch auxiliary lights, new Dunlop Trailmax Mission adventure tires, and a pair of Forma Terra EVO X adventure boots. 

Mike is very excited to upgrade his equipment to all-new ‘premium’ gear he’s read about on ADV Pulse, but one of the prizes he’s most excited about is the RawHyde Off-Road Training. He says he’s been thinking about doing the course for the last five years. Now there are no more excuses. “I can’t wait to go!!!”

Congratulations to Mike Zanon for being our 2020 Ultimate Adventure Giveaway Winner! We’re sure the prizes will help enable some incredible motorcycle journeys and we can’t wait to hear all about them! We’d also like to thank our sponsors RawHyde Adventures, Aether Apparel, Forma Boots, Cyclops Adventure Sports, Dunlop, GIVI, and Shoei for contributing the awesome prizes.

NOTE: For all those who participated, keep an eye out for an exclusive offer in your email. And don’t worry, we’ll have another awesome giveaway coming your way soon. So stay tuned, you could be the next lucky winner!
