KHS Factory’s Steven Walton takes home the Win

KHS Factory racing’s Steven Walton found himself back on the top step in Fontana at the Southridge winter series as he goes with back to back wins in the series.

“The second round of the 2019 Southridge Winter Series started off less than desirable but quickly improved come race time.” Steven goes on, “Day 1 featured winds and gusts upwards of fifty mph; more than enough to knock you off your bike without notice! With conditions as bad as they were, I opted for a “one and done” practice run to conserve my energy for the harder than usual Fontana sprint. Day 2 had beautiful weather that was great for racing. New race rules for 2019 meant two race runs were in store, putting a large emphasis on consistency. Both of my race runs were smooth and fast, and I was able to pilot my KHS to the top step for the second time in a row in the series so far!”

YouTube creator Brain Davis, is on a mission, as he says, ” We’re on a mission to bring down the learning curve for racing and riding bikes. The MAIN thing is you’re having fun, thinking about competing (with yourself) and looking for positive race vibes.” We agree with him, so we here at KHS want to help Brian on his mission.

KHS Factory Racing off to Good Start

The 2019 race has just started, and KHS Factory Racing wasted no time getting to the top step.  Nik Nestoroff came out on top taking the win at the first round of the DVO Winter Cup at Bootleg Canyon, with new teammate Steven Walton, fresh off his win at the first round of the Southridge race series in Fontana CA, taking 2nd. Rounding out the top 3 was teammate Logan Binggeli.

After the race, we asked Logan about his weekend of racing, here is what he had to say, “What an awesome three-day weekend the first race of the season was firing off in Boulder city Nevada… For myself this Race is very nerve-racking with all the time off in the off-season. Also after winning this race three times in a row the pressure was on! Couldn’t be more happy for KHS factory racing to sweep the entire podium and myself coming in third huge congratulations to Nik and Steven for crushing it!!! ”

“Recently coming aboard the program, this was my first event with the guys together as a team.” Steven Walton said, “I was nothing short of impressed by the professionalism and structure of the team, pit, and support. Day one consisted of pit area set up, the usual bike prep, and a few practice laps to get a feel for what my DH 650 Team rig is truly capable of.”

Steven continues, “Day two consisted of more practice laps, which meant more time for myself to get comfortable and set up on the new bike. The third and final day, race day, would show to be the most exciting. Clean race runs from everyone on the team to finish the weekend by sweeping the podium in first, second, and third. To say I am stoked for the season would be an under statement. Having the opportunity to race and train with three very talented athletes, of which are both team mates and friends, is something I look forward to for the rest of the season.”
