Sitting just inches behind a modified Land Rover SVR, Denise Mueller of San Diego, California, set a new women’s bicycle land speed record at 147 miles per hour on Saturday.
“I’m the fastest woman on a bicycle ever!” Mueller screamed while still shaking from the attempt. “I can’t explain it. You don’t get a sense of the speed. All I know is we went faster than we’ve ever been before.”
Mueller set the new women’s speed record at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats where she rode a highly customized bike built by Chris Garcia of SD Wheel Works with technical support from Da Vinci Designs and KHS Bicycles.
Some photos sent from Bryan VanVleet. His four man team lapped the field at the 12 Hours of Temecula and won by a lap and a half. They’re in the points lead going into the race series final in November.
Bryan has been riding the Full Suspension Team 29 FS and loves the speed and how it performs.
Congratulations to Freda Gorman from Placerville, CA on her recent win on The Price Is Right. Freda won an Alite 350 bicycle which she picked up from her local KHS Dealer Bicycle Guys in El Dorado Hills, CA.
Congrats to Freda and many thanks to the Bicycle Guys for assembling the Alite 350.
Freestyle MX star Jeremy ‘Twitch’ Stenberg stopped by KHS to pick-up two KHS bicycles he will use for cross training. Jeremy picked up the superlight and fast Carbon Fiber Team29er for the dirt and the CashCall Team issue Flite 900. Jeremy was totally stoked with the awesome colorway on these two bikes, not to mention the lightweight feel of these carbon rides.
