2021 is absolutely starting off to be a year to remember.  The Nevada state championship race is done and dusted and the KHS Pro MTB team has came out on top. With blood sweat and tears and a whole lot of dedication the team has won the  pro men’s downhill finals three years in a row thanks to Nik Nestoroff. This is a massive accomplishment with a lot of support and help from everyone in the Mountain Bike community.

She is now two for two wins for the 2021 season. Also within her final race run she unfortunately crashed at the very top of the race which scared us all, she managed to get back on her bike and win the race. Which was an amazing accomplishment in her professional field of Racing.

On the unfortunate side of things was Steven Walton who was definitely up for grabs for the win between him and Nik. Steven had a mechanical about 25 seconds into his race run. Which ended up being a flat tire. He was still only 26 seconds off the lead and definitely would’ve been a contender for the win alongside Nik.

Things Heat up at a Frozen Bootleg Canyon

This past weekend at Bootleg Canyon in Bolder City, NV had some epic weather. You had strong winds, rain, hail and even snow! But that did not stop the KHS Factory Racing team from coming up big.

Nik Nestoroff took the win again at he DVO Winter series, with teammates Steven Walton, taking 2nd and Logan Binggeli with 3rd place on the day. “Super good time out at the second round of the Bootleg Gravity Series. The whole team was out there flying and brought home some great results. The KHS was working awesome and we swept the podium!” -Nik Nestoroff

Also newest team member, Bryce Helbling, took 5th place on the day.

“Great weekend out with team in Bootleg for the second round of the series! I was plagued by many flat tires all weekend allowing me to only get two practice runs in before race time, so I’m stoked with a 2nd place finish between Nik and Logan. The team atmosphere was the perfect recipe for success.” -Steven Walton

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.”

Stay tuned for more epic updates as KHS Factory Racing rolls on with the 2019 race season.
