Team Mountain Khaki and Jittery Joe\'s Coffee: Our most successful team and highly visible to date. The team had rider Isaac Howe, who won the USA Crits Series title. He also won the U25 classification and the team won the team competition. We had some great North Carolina riders on this team too (Jon Hamblen and Mark Hekman). The team raced our K Team Racing, K Team Carbon, and K Team Carbon SL frames.
DLP was one of only 16 Pro Cycling Teams in the US registered with the UCI for 2008. The partnership allowed Kane Bikes to be tested at the highest level of the sport. The team used a variety of Kane Bikes during the season. Many of the team members opted for the ultralight K Team SL and the full carbon Nighthawk frame.
We partnered with Cheerwine Cycling to provide them with both road and time trial bicycles. The all-female team, which consisted of 11 riders, competed in the National Racing Calendar, as well as the Womenâ€™s Prestige Series races. The partnership helped provide product feedback from the female perspective.
