Alchemy Bicycles is entering the world race stage for 2018. And they have signed two pro riders to represent the brand. Anneke Beerten and Cody Kelley will be riding the entire Enduro World Series calendar aboard the Arktos.
Anneke Beerten was born in the Netherlands and started racing BMX at 4 years old. She has been riding bikes and finding herself on podiums ever since. That includes being the 4-Cross World Champion three times. The Dutch rider is now based in Southern California where she can ride year-round and train to be one of the top women on the 2018 EWS circuit.
Cody Kelley is the young gun of the team at 23 years old and hails from Salt Lake City, Utah. In 2017 he won the Scott Enduro Series and came in 13th at EWS Aspen. Kelley also has roots in BMX, which can be seen on the course when he is pumping and throwing in manuals at every opportunity.
The bike they will be riding is Alchemy’s Arktos. A six-inch travel, 27.5-inch wheeled carbon bike. It is also the first production full-suspension carbon bike to be completely made on U.S. soil. Look out for Kelley and Beerten this summer.
