To thank all those that contributed in the battle, a grand prize was drawn at random. The winner of the Custom Pink Intense UZZI is Brent Ratelle and this was his reaction when asked about why he supported and his cycling background:

bigquotesOk..again..WOW! Awesome!

The fundraiser is a good cause, I have donted to them before. I am a thyroid cancer survivor. Mine was caught very early and there was minimal damage, so I was blessed there. I live in the Denver area, originally from Atlanta. I started racing BMX at 10 years of age and still race cruiser. I traveled and raced the NORBA circuit in the 90's semi pro DH and Slalom. I am now 38 and am still downhill riding/racing (just had my first trip to Whislter this summer), 4X/Slalom, XC. I am looking at getting into Enduro/Super D. This bike is pretty much set for that! Thanks again for this fundraiser and opportunity.

-Brent

 Hello, I am the Brent from the contest. Thanks for the props. Sort of had to look twice at the first "you won" email. The biggest thing is all the $$$ everyone coughed up for a good cause. Pinkbike people are a great bunch no matter what country or part of the world you are in!

 Stoked that it went to you man! To fight cancer yourself and then go on to support the cause is a great thing. Well deserved now go and get it dirty!

 This is a great cause but I am disappointed that all the funding is going to women with breast cancer and not a penny to men! Do men dying of breast cancer not matter? Do your research before negative propping please .

 bighucker, while many of us understand where your coming from, having a Female only cause is great. They really have very few when it comes down to it.

Males have Prostate Cancer ordeals (such as Movember), Colon cancer ordeals (which focus on males for the majority), and many others.

Nothing wrong with it, and don't think guys are being robbed or left aside ever. The popularity of Movember alone on PB is enough that we should do everything we can possible for the females for once.

 Holy crap Brent!!! Good on you brother!!!! Intense, I've known this guy since my first ever race in 1992. He's been a long time supporter of the scene and was an awesome employee of the world famous John Kovachi.

Please post a pic of you in one of your retro pink/yellow/black Kovachi jerseys so I can time warp to the good old days!

This prize could not have gone to a better guy. Stop in NC anytime and look me up.
