KHS Racer Seamus Powell Wins US Nat’l Enduro Championiships

KHS Pro Seamus Powell won the 2017 National Enduro Championships, finishing over 40 seconds ahead of Mitch Ropelato.Seamus had this to say about the race, “The Race was 8 stages with a good mix of short Down Hill oriented stages and a few more physically challenging stages spread out over 2 days. I just rode my own race from stage 1 and focused on being smooth and keeping my bike and body together on some very challenging terrain. I’ve been working hard for a good result at Enduro National Champs for a few years now and I’m pumped to take this win for KHS!!! ” Congrats Seamus!

“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.
