Kenny started racing mountain bikes at the age of 18 while living in Oahu, Hawaii. He moved back to the mainland where he raced for several teams on the NORBA race circuit up until 1991 when he quit racing altogether to pursue other interests.
Kenny began riding his bike again in 2005 with longtime friend Jimmy Deaton and quickly regained the passion and training habits that made him one of the top amateur mountain bike racers in the late eighties and early nineties.
With his dedicated work ethic he quickly achieved his goal of becoming a cat 2 road racer, finishing on the masters podium at the Tour of the Gila. After meeting his road goals, Kenny turned his attention to mountain bike and cyclocross racing, which is where he focuses all his racing attention.
Know as the “tireless caretaker”, Kenny is also the equipment manager for both the Stan’s NoTubes Elite Women’s Team and the Stan’s NoTubes Elite Cyclocross Team, a role he personally undertook to ensure the teams ride the best equipment possible. Always looking for more, Kenny invited former pro racers and friends to form the Stan’s NoTubes Elite Masters Team. This grassroots team is based in his hometown of Durango, Colorado and promotes community cycling through racing and ambassadorship in the Four Corners region. Look for Kenny on the start line of select 45+ races throughout this year and in the pits taking care of the rest of the Stan’s racers.
When not racing his bike Kenny stays in shape working as a wildland firefighter for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Southern Ute Agency.
