Walton Re-Signs with KHS Pro MTB

Steven Walton has re-signed with the KHS Pro MTB Team, and we are excited for what he will bring to the team in 2023. Steven shard his thoughts and feelings with us about his excitement on his 2023 race season. “I’m stoked to continue working with the KHS Family and share with you that I’m with them for the next two years. Racing has been a huge part of my life for the last 10 years and being able to share that with a company that has such a large passion for the sport is huge.

I will continue to race DH nationally, while also putting a larger focus on our E-Bike line up, racing them at all the BME events as well as a few GNCC’s! The vibes are electric moving forward and I’m thrilled to be able to experience a different side of racing than what I’m used to. My goals going into the 2023 season are to lay down some great national results and continue to build great relationships within the industry! Stoked to have the support of these great companies and look forward to seeing everyone at the races!!”

Bootleg Canyon located in Boulder City Nevada, has a legacy of mountain bike racing dating back all the way to the 1990s with KHS bicycles taking the top spot podiums for over 23 years running. It was really cool to see that legacy carry-on with riders Nathan Kitchen and Steven Walton holding it down for the team. Bootleg Canyon is located about 10 miles Southwest from the Hoover dam, which is a very unique track located on very rocky terrain, which requires much physical effort, line selection, and safety precautions all the way down from point A to B. It was one of the best tracks on the mountain, Snake Back all the way down to the parking lot, which is one of my personal favorites. It also has a midsection called Poopshoe, which was very, very steep and technical. Bootleg is known for holding some of the best Winter series races, alongside Southridge racing, in Fontana, CA.

Everyone on the West Coast is itching to get out of the snow and cold to race. There were over 1500 amateurs and pros gathered together for the Southwest state championships. It brought out some great fans as well…

“The Team could not be prouder to fire off the 2023 season with Nate Kitchen & Steven Walton grabbing top podium positions out at the Southridge Winter series in Fontana, CA! It was not an easy weekend of racing with California dealing with torrential downpours, we were lucky to be racing and staying safe throughout these tough weather systems. Steven Walton would grab 2nd place in the Enduro & Down Hill events in some wet conditions. Nate Kitchen would have some dominance performance in the Jr. pros taking the top spot!

“Solid weekend out here in Fontana for the first race of the year. Happy to start the season right with a 1st place finish. Southridge bringing the wall back and some rain made things tricky and super physical. Glad to keep it together and excited for what the rest of the year has in store”.
