Kenda/KMC/Hayes Professional Mountain Bike Team earns top honors in Winter Short Track Series!

The Kenda/KMC/Hayes Professional Mountain Bike Team completed their first series of the year, taking the top spots in the Nothing But Noodles Winter Short Track Series. The final race of the series took place Sunday, February 15 on a sunny day in Charlotte, North Carolina. Anina placed second in Cat 2 Men, Philicia placed 8th in the class. Anina rode to a win in the Pro/Cat1 women, while Philicia placed third, securing their spots as 1st and 2nd in the series for the top women. Robert and Chase worked together to take 1 and 2 in the Pro/Cat 1 Men, and finished the series in the same spots. The team trailer was at the event once again, with the promo table for racers and fans to grab free stickers, catalogues, VIP cards from sponsors Kenda, KMC, Hayes, American Classic, Optic Nerve, RotoR, Finishline, and BMC. The team will be accumulating more promo items from sponsors for all events this year. Congratulations to Jeremy Sims who won the raffle for the KMC 9-spd chain. The team also gave away prizes from RotoR to the fastest first lappers in the single-speed and Pro/Cat1 women's races, and Clif Shot Bloks to the fastest Juniors in each of their age groups. Throughout the series, the Kenda/KMC/Hayes Professional Mountain Bike Team gave special lap prizes to each of the categories racing.
After the events for the day, the team headed over to Nothing but Noodles, the sponsor of the series, for the awards ceremony for overall prizes. The team came away with the top two spots in the Pro/Cat1 men and Pro/Cat1 women's fields, earning cash and trophies. Robert placed 1st in Pro/Cat1 Men, Chase placed 2nd in Pro/Cat 1 Men. In Pro/Cat1 women, Anina earned 1st, and Philicia placed 2nd. Anina also earned 2nd place in the Cat2 Men's field overall. The team would like to thank all of our sponsors for helping us have a successful series. We look forward to more successful races in 2009.
