    Driscoll Puts Chumba On The Podium

    May 12, 2006- Anaheim, Ca: Kote Driscoll landed her first podium
    finish of the year at the Fontana NORBA National this past weekend. Kote took
    home a 4th place finish in what proved to be an extremely tight race, with
    only one second separating 2nd and 4th place. Despite working a full-time
    job with long hours, Kote's ability to perform despite limited training
    showed a glimpse of the potential she has. In what may possibly be a
    breakout year for this fledging female DH pro, Kote has taken to her
    factory prepped CHUMBA Racing F4 bike like a true pro.

    Conditions at the Fontana DH were typical for SoCal, loose dirt, steep
    granite faces, blown-out turns with misguiding ruts, and a pedal your
    guts out straightaway. Despite the conditions, athletes must control
    their temptation to overexert themselves on the 2:00+ course, for
    patience and timing proved to be the method to take a top spot on the
    podium. Kote had no problem deciphering the DH course on her race run
    and put together a solid race that caught the attention of many
    veterans in her class.

    The CHUMBA Racing F4 -- handbuilt, designed, and manufactured in
    Anaheim CA -- by CHUMBA founder Ted Tanouye, continues its legacy of
    winning and pushing riders to higher levels. CHUMBA's operating
    principle of designing and manufacturing mountain bikes that maximize
    a rider's performance is exemplified in the success the F4 has seen
    over the years. This philosophy trickles down to all of CHUMBA's
    products, including the recently released all mountain six inch travel

    Ted Tanouye commented on Kote's win, saying, "Kote's win was an
    unexpected suprise, and I'm optimistic about her future racing career,
    as well as the product feedback we're continually receiving from the
    ongoing racing effort." Look for Kote to be on the podium hunt for
    the rest of the NORBA DH season

    Awesome! Kote lives here locally and is a true sweetheart. I actually first met her a couple years ago on one of her early mountain bike rides (Madonna Mtn rock garden, for those that know SLO). Most recently, I chatted with her at Firestone Walker XC races and she's still humble and down to earth, all while kickin butt. Amazing!! I'm so happy for her!
