Felt and Kenda ties a solid partnership to support a four-rider professional mountain bike team that is set to compete for major local and international events, focusing on cross-country and endurance classifications. Felt bikes and Kenda Tires will sponsor the team composed of Colin Cares, Judy Freeman, Amanda Carey and Andy Schultz.
Andy Schultz personally expresses her excitement to race for Felt since she believes in its reliability in racing and it has a long history of having sponsored great riders of all time. “I feel honored to have their support,” the 2005 US National Champion who is under 23.
The Kanda-Felt team will target the Pro XCT series but will keep their prospects open for a more varied and broad schedule. This is because of the inclusion of their riders who specialize in wide varieties of classification like Cares who is a known endurance rider and Freeman who represented USA last stellar 2009 season in Australia.
All the riders can choose their own Felt bikes but most of them are assumed to get the Felt’s Nine Series which are the top preference of most endurance riders. They think it could be a great weapon for the Leadville competition. The riders will also be involved in any development of new and more advanced products of the company.
