With only four racers, the Steven K Sports National Professional Racing Team is small in number but powerful in skill. They have made a name for themselves in the pro sports world and continue to prove that they are a force to be reckoned with. The California based quad constantly tops the charts; they have been the #1 ranked pro mountain bike team in the state five years in a row!
This tight-knit team began with cycling races in 1990 and has since expanded to compete in many sports including running, kayaking, swimming, and snowshoeing. The team also balances a business side that incorporates team management, marketing, and product development. But, true to their roots, biking is where they shine. They compete across the country, and two of their riders were part of the World Team in 2004 and 2006.
“Our team goals are to win every race we enter and to increase the growth of mountain biking with trail maintenance and cycling clinics,” said Pro Team Captain Steven Kinney.
