Kenda/KMC/Hayes has great results at Sea Otter Classic!

The four members of the Kenda/KMC/Hayes Professional Mountain Bike team traveled to Monterey, CA to compete at the Sea Otter Classic. The team had several days of racing, with Super-D to start the weekend on Friday afternoon. Robert Marion earned a 7th place finish in the Pro Men Super-D. Anina Aaron placed 7th in the Pro Women Super-D, with Philicia Marion also holding on to a top 10 finish. Chase Dickens began his weekend with a podium, grabbing 3rd place in the 18&under field.
On Saturday, Chase earned another podium spot, with a fourth place in the 18&under CAT 1 short track. Robert also had an awesome short track performance, working his way to 8th place in the Pro Men's field. The women also did well, with Anina earning 18th and Philicia earning 30th.
The weekend ended with record-high temperatures for the cross-country race. The hot weather didn't slow down the junior elite rider, Chase, as he won the Cat1 15/16 class, earning his third trip to the podium. Robert Marion placed 32nd, with the ladies finishing 35th, (Anina), and 38th(Philicia).
The team enjoyed seeing many of our sponsors at Sea Otter.
