The team was able to practice Friday and Saturday with the final DH race happening Sunday morning. Conditions were definitely a struggle all the way through the weekend with winds up to 50 miles an hour.

The team had great training sessions Friday as well as Saturday and they were off to an early morning start for Sunday. Kailey Skelton laid down a blistering run to take the pro women’s category with a 15 second lead. She even overcame a huge crash on her first practice run of Sunday morning which was a scare for the whole team.

The pro man’s category had a very deep field of highly talented riders. After it was all said and done it was Steven Walton who was able to come out in third place and get on the podium. Unfortunately Nik Nestoroff would suffer a flat tire mid race run and end his day with misfortune.

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.
