KOH 2012 was GREAT!
We finished 12th overall out of a field of 137. We're really
hungry for a top 10 but this is our best finish yet and we can see the
top from here. We have pictures and comments on our Facebook page
We'll update this page more as we go but that's a LOT of material to check out along with our build threads in some of the links below.
Pretty familiar looking racer on that poster! This is the official course map poster from the 2011 event, definitely an honor to be on that one!
On our way to KOH 2011 we stopped by Superior's warehouse in Las Vegas to pick up some of their chromoly 14 bolt shafts. They're awesome, Mac said they had to really work on them to make a shaft significantly better than stock and they did it.
