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.
Just as the world went on lockdown, the KHS Pro MTB team headed out to Lake Elsinore, California for training. We hope you are all staying safe during these hard times, and we look forward to seeing you back out on the trails soon.
