Bruce Klein

As a bit of a late bloomer to the DH race scene, he's done nothing but turn heads. In 2013, he did his first race at the Fontana Winter series. Immediately seeing it as his calling, Bruce put his nose to the grindstone and turned all his focuses on racing. 2014 started with a broken collar bone but he would end up on multiple DH Podiums and win the Junior class at the Winter Park EWS. Although he said he loved enduro, his true passion lies with DH.

Getting a taste of what could be, Bruce stepped it up to another level for 2015. He would prove to be a dominant force in the National Series winning almost half the rounds and podiuming at several others. These stellar results landed him a US team spot for Mount Saint Anne, Windham and the World Championships. His full throttle mentality got the best of him at world champs, in the last corner. He washed the front end and had to run with his bike across the line to a 12th place finish.

2016 brings Bruce’s rookie year in the Pro class and we couldn't be more excited to see what kind of damage he can do. His schedule will now focus more on World Cups and only a few national rounds. Bruce chose to finish his last year of high school online so he can focus 100% on his dream. Now filling his days with workouts and rides with the homies. Seeing someone come up so fast and to be so unbelievably excited about a sport is refreshing. Keep your eyes peeled for this flying ball of excitement.

 That's the funny thing about the socal scene. Not even the locals know where the trails are. Impossible to share a trail with someone without it getting ripped out a month later. And no that is not Simi Valley.

 Thanks for the fresh, rad video! I needed that taste of what's to come... It's about 60 degrees with blue sky here, but there's about 3' of rock-solid, stupid snow on the trails.
