This weekend KHS Peru Downhill riders finished second and third at the RedBull Copa Downhill.
Brener Montes – 2nd. Place – DH Elite (Only 1 second behind the winner)
Sebatian Villegas – 3rd.Place – Enduro Elite
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!
Bruce Klein has been looking unstoppable this season. He was looking just the same leading up to race time at Bootleg Canyon for the finals of the DVO Winter Series. Unfortunately it was not to be his day, he flatted towards the top of the track, and this ended his hopes of the win and getting up on the box for the overall.
Racing is tough, we cannot win them all, but can we applaud Bruce Klein for his massive effort!
Logan Bingelli placed a super fast second-place and taking the overall Points Title! Way to do it, Logan.

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.
