Pro GRT # 2 – Vernon, NJ

Words: Quinton Spaulding

20120522-235510.jpg

KHS was in Vernon, NJ this past weekend for round number two on the Pro GRT Tour.

20120522-235831.jpg

KHS Factory Racing videographer Travis Fant joined us for another first class race edit – STAY TUNED!

20120523-000334.jpg

Making it happen on the road ain’t easy… if you witnessed Travis AKA “Fant Films” at work he may make you think otherwise.

20120523-002859.jpg

Here is a view of Vernon from the chairlift at Mountain Creek Bike Park – AWESOME!

20120523-003154.jpg

Aiello on track and looking sharp during the first training session.

20120523-004346.jpg

And enough STYLE for all of NJ!

20120523-010132.jpg

Binggeli got up to speed real quick with his Nations flag on his sleeve… USA USA USA!!!

20120523-012100.jpg

Custom cutting our KENDA TIRES for the rough terrain on the East Cost is a must.

20120523-012639.jpg

Shade and hydration are so commonly overlooked when racing, so we are pretty regimental about staying on top of it!

20120523-063915.jpg

I certainly had a BLAST training and racing on the new track.

20120523-064332.jpg

It was a little more “wide open” than usual, this made it fun to attack!

20120523-064714.jpg

I had a solid run on the day and placed 28th.

20120523-070731.jpg

Aiello was on a super pinned race run but unfortunately went down in one of the major rock gardens. He still managed to finish 20th.

20120523-071141.jpg

Binggeli was close to the pace on the day… But finished just off the podium in 8th.

20120523-071631.jpg

In the big scheme of things KHS Factory Racing had a solid weekend, however at this level and with this amount of support we expect to be on the wood.

We are off to New York, PLATTEKILL to be exact and hope to redeem ourselves there with a BIG FINISH!

Please stay tuned for more updates as they become available.

All the best,
Q.
