Former high school XC racer will compete in downhill, too

Logan Binggeli, the KHS team manager, sent us the following announcement about Bella Naughton joining the KHS factory enduro team:

We are thrilled to have one of the best female North American Enduro athletes join our squad for the 2024 season. Bella is no stranger to podiums when it comes to the big mountain Enduro and other top-notch North American Enduro races. We are also excited to be supporting her when it comes to the Downhill side of things she will be competing in the monster energy American Downhill Series along with other Premier events. We can’t wait to see what Bella Naughton can accomplish under the KHS umbrella, welcome to the family!

Born and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona, I grew up racing off-road trucks and ski racing. My family raced mountain bikes but I never found an interest in it until I was talked into joining my high school’s cross-country team in 2016. I then went to an enduro race with my mom and fell in love with going downhill and I haven’t stopped since.

I am excited to be on the KHS race team for 2024 and looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish together in enduro and downhill!
