This years Sea Otter Classic ended with a bang! KHS Factory riders Nik Nestoroff & Steven Walton fought of some of the biggest names in the Mountain bike world, Steve Peat, Greg Minnaar, just to name a few. Nik was able to finish in 2nd place while Steven took 4th over all.
The day started with some fog and the track was a little wet, and the boys were able to qualify in 2nd and 3rd heading into the finals.
In the finals the track dried out and the winds picked up, as well as the dust. Many riders went down in the dry conditions, but Nik and Steven were able to hold out for one of the most epic finishes is Sea Otter Dual Slalom history!
Congratulations to Nik & Steven at this epic race! Sea you next years Sea Otter.

DVO Winter Series Round 2 was last modified: March 15th, 2019 by Flick
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.
