The KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo Cycling Team had a great time at Interbike this past month. We always enjoy connecting with our partners, checking out what new products are coming out for the upcoming season, and getting to spend time with many of the individuals who are invested in our program. This year it was no different! Brian McCulloch, Cory Lockwood, Duban Sanchez and Joy McCulloch spent Monday and Tuesday at Outdoor Demo assisting the KHS Factory Racing Team sending road and mountain bikes out to demo on the local roads and trails. Once in the show Wednesday through Friday, we enjoyed meeting up with our partners and although we missed a few photos with them, here is a quick look at some of the great people behind the scenes of our sponsors.

Pro GRT Finals | Mammoth, California

The KHS team made their way up to Mammoth Lakes, CA for the final round of the Pro GRT series. Coming into the finals Logan Binggeli was siting in 3rd place overall, and in order to take the title he needed the win, and the current leader at the time, Shane Leslie had to finish 7th or worse.
We came close, but just couldn’t snatch the title. Logan ended up 2nd on the day, and 2nd overall,  it was a massive attempt and this will set the team up well for the 2017 season.

Onto the RAMPAGE!!!

“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.

The KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo Cycling Team traveled straight to Bend, OR after a successful race at the Boise Twilight Criterium. The 5-day UCI Stage Race is one of the most challenging events of the season, and the athletes were happy to arrive early to spend some extra time relaxing, training, and seeing our great hosts. The teams roster for the event is as follows: Fabrizio Von Nacher, Cory Lockwood, Eder Frayre, Aflredo Castillo, Duban Sanchez and Innokenty Zavyalov.

Fabrizio Von Nacher reported in on his experience with the team at the event:

“Cascade Cycling Classic is one of my favorite races in the US. I love Bend, Oregon and all the people in town that support the race. Especially all of our host families whom we have stayed with for 6 years now. The Johnson’s, the Hayes family, Rob and Mary Angelo – without them this race wouldn’t be the same, they are the best!

In this year’s race, we had an awesome group of guys on the team. All of my teammates were in great form and this year the team had its best results at the stage race. We knew that Eder would climb very well and that Inno would have a great time trial, so they were leading team through out the race.
The team plan in most of the stages was to keep our three top GC contenders Inno, Eder and Cory out of trouble and to help them save as much energy for the final climbs. Alfredo, Duban and myself were constantly moving up to the front of the field to keep the guys safe. When we got to the climb, the guys rode incredible and Eder managed to get 4th on the first day of racing – 113…
