Seamus Powell was hot and ready to race. This marked his first race of the year and he wasted no time on showing what he can do.
All his hard work and training the last few months paid off for him as he was able to take 3rd overall in the Enduro.
Nik Nestoroff was coming off an injury from his last race back in March. He rode solid this past weekend to get him back into the racing swing.

With states in the Southeastern United States opening back up after the COVID-19 pandemic, Downhill Southeast has announced that they will go ahead with 4 races starting in June. Most of the original schedule has been pushed back due to local laws or larger events rescheduling.
Racing will proceed under local guidelines with social distancing techniques in place such as online-only registration, staggered lift lines and modified awards ceremonies. Having a time trial race rather than a mass start event will make it easier for riders to avoid close contact while competing.
The KHS Pro MTB team has been staying fit and are excited to start racing again. Nik Nestoroff and Steven Walton will be racing the downhill crouse, while teammate Seamus Powell will be racing the enduro track. We are stocked to be able to get back to racing and wish the team the very best.
