Kona-Ford Focus has signed former Saturn road star Bart Bowen to its team. Bowen will make his debut at the Sea Otter Classic, in Monterey, California this weekend.
“Bart was looking to do less racing on the road on a full-on contract, high-pressure situation,” said Kona team manager Mark Peterson. “The Kona team will be a much more relaxed atmosphere.”
Bowen joins Geoff Kabush, Tracey Moseley, and Scott Beaumont headlining the 2001 team.
Bowen will also be part of Kona’s cyclo-cross team, which includes Dale Knapp, and Ann Grande.
“Cross is where we’ll be getting serious,” added Peterson.
