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.

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.

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…
