The winner of the Hoka Hey Challenge William Barclay has declared that the prize money has been wired to his account.
On July 29th, John White of Crazy Horse Motorcycles – who has previously stated that he is the owner of the Hoka Hey 2011- sent me a press release stating that “During a polygraph test Mr. Barclay was subjected to a drug test for sedatives and then was questioned about the safe operation of his motorcycle, the prescribed route, navigation and drug use during the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge. After 3 hours of questions – he had passed.”
Will Barclay said in an interview to a magazine that his sister used the internet and Facebook and helped him stay abreast of other competitors. “I was able to get cell phone calls and text messages. My cell was held on a bracket and while it was tough to make calls I could easily get them along with text messages which I could also read as I was riding. So yes, I knew about the road sign controversy and all the negative chatter on the internet blogs. When my friend Alex was injured in AZ. my sister let me know. She even told me there was a group of riders 12 hours behind me and that they thought they were in the lead…”
The Broken Spoke didn’t officially confirm to me if there will be an award ceremony on August 11th at its County Line Campground although this date has been mentioned several times.
