A few months back we sent Cory Wallace (@wallacesworld) on a brand new Kona Libre and photographer Anthony Smith (@the4color) to the legendary Dirty Kanza 200 mile gravel race in Emporia, Kansas. Cory, we hoped would win while Anthony captured it all. A couple of flat tires early in the day ruined those plans and Cory spent the remainder of the race pushing his way to the front from 600th or so back. Anthony’s amazing photo essay and Cory’s DK200 adventure is now available to view online on our new Stories platform, just hit the link in our profile or head to konaworld.com/kona_stories.cfm #KonaBikes#KonaLibre#DK200 • It’s best viewed on a nice big computer screen!
