Windrock, Tennessee Downhill National

First national of the year, already in the books with our development athlete, Mekenna Merten holding it down in the Pro women’s category.

“Rough day out there today and the TN National. Unfortunately, I had a major mechanical problem halfway through my race run. Super bummed to have ended the first race of the year that way, but that part of racing. Back to work until the next one. I’m super hungry for more racing. Big thanks for KHS Bicycles and all our co-sponsors”. 

McKenna Merten / Pro Athlete 

The first National of the year is already in the books, and our development athlete, Mekenna Merten, is holding it down in the Pro women’s category. With very limited time on the bike and little testing under her belt, McKenna would come out with a top 10 finish on the first major USA national of the year. Mackenna was definitely striving for more and, unfortunately, had a mechanical with her chain falling off near the top of her race run. The team and McKenna will continuously improve her adaptability to her KHS downhill bike and get her more tuned in. The entire team has been training very hard this off-season and will be hot and ready for the Seattle classic, where the whole team will be together for the first time in 2024. Once again, we want to thank all our sponsors, friends, family, and everyone who supports the dream!
