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.

Another great weekend out at the races! With rain in the forecast for the entire weekend I was unsure of what to expect heading into Saturday’s practice session. Cloudy skies and scattered rain showers meant the conditions for this race were absolutely perfect. I quickly tested my limits and found myself crashing on the ground. After “dusting” myself off and catching my breath, I headed back up to get my lines dialed. I soon found that my KHS 650 and this race track were a match made in heaven, flowing together almost seamlessly.
Race day quickly came around, which saw more participants and spectators than the previous two races. More rain came down over night, and continued to come down well into practice. With track conditions less than ideal, and two consistent runs needed, I figured the best option would be to tame it down ever so slightly in the rocks, focusing mainly on the pedaling lower down. In the end it worked out for me, and I was able to claim my third consecutive win in this five race series.
