It’s pretty simple — we want to help get more ladies on mountain bikes and serve as a channel for women who have goals to compete at the highest level of the sport.
The KS-Kenda Elite Women’s Mountain Bike Team will make its racing debut in January for the 2018 mountain bike race season. The team grew out of the desire for female racers to have the support and comRADery of a team in a racing environment that has a shortage of available team slots.
Throughout the season, we all saw each other at races and began friendships. We agreed that there are very few spots available on the three domestic women’s teams. After talking with each other, we decided create a new pathway and create our own team!
Our team is predominately cross-country focused, with four strong, driven, hard-working women.
