Yamaha launched this new sweepstakes for bicycle fans at the 2018 Sea Otter Classic, the world’s premier cycling festival, and will announce the winner at (or around) September 20, 2018, at Interbike, the largest bicycling trade event in North America.

“We’re excited to bring Yamaha’s all-new Power Assist Electric bicycles to the U.S. this summer, and the Pick Your Passion sweepstakes gives us another way to share that excitement with cycling enthusiasts across the country,” said Drew Engelmann, Yamaha Power Assist Bicycles Sales and Marketing Manager. “Interbike represents the one-year anniversary of Yamaha’s U.S. bicycle brand launch, and it serves as the perfect venue to announce the winner of this sweepstakes – who will get to chose one of the all-new Yamaha Power Assist Bicycle models. If you’re into e-Bikes, go sign-up. We’ll let you know when the bikes get into stores in your area, and you might be the lucky winner!”

This summer, Yamaha is bringing four all-new Power Assist Bicycle models to the U.S., including the CrossConnect, a completely accessorized commuter/utility bike, the CrossCore, a high style efficient fitness bike, the UrbanRush, a drop-bar do everything road bike, and YDX-TORC, a performance hardtail e-mountain bike. The Pick Your Passion winner will get to choose from the four models.
