Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenges Hits the Spit

Aaron Selbig, KBBI – Homer

Two men simultaneously finished the Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge on the Homer Spit early Monday morning, staking their claim to the half-million-dollar prize money in the 8,000 mile endurance race. The Hoka Hey has not been without controversy, however, as some riders – including a Homer man who finished the race Monday afternoon – are claiming the whole thing might be a scam. At least six Hoka hey participants have been hospitalized due to accidents along the route and one of them – Charles C. Lynn of Florida – was killed Saturday, following a crash in Wyoming.
