Kev stepped away from his long time post as "Captain" of our XC Factory, to persue the other side of mountain biking. The fun side! Although he keeps an Element warmed up and iddling for the days where he feels like checking back in with XC racing, the Instinct BC was his gateway to freedom outside the tape. Gnarly rock lines, steep root-engulphed shoots, even logging the occasional air miles are all new to the Captain, and he'll wash it all down with a 20oz. latte from the local coffee shop/riding hub. However, 2018 sees Kev dusting off his racing shoes and dig back into select XC races to push himself, but also to have fun and rub shoulders with his old race cronies!
