Rider Profile - Kevin Bradford- Parish
With a little help from www.crossresults.com I've done some background research on Redline's Kevin Bradford Parrish. A couple years ago we went to a mountain bike race in Spokane. We were all pretty confident as there was a low turnout. However, little did we know that KBP was in the expert race. He killed us. From then on I'd noticed his name poke up in numerous results including national caliber events. I was hoping he'd come to Rolling Thunder, but it was great to see him at the Montana State Championship. As you can see from www.crossresults.com, his top rivals are Russell Stevenson (6th at Star Crossed), Tonkin, Weighall (7th at USGP 1 and 2), Sheppard (Cross Crusade all star), and Andy Jacques Maynes. That's basically the second major group of North American Cyclocross. I think his best result this year is a 10th place at Boulder Cup. The last two years at Nats he's placed 21st and 23rd respectively. The real question is would he have beaten Sam Krieg at Rolling Thunder? I don't know, but what I do know is that our region is getting faster and faster. Hopefully we can put a series together in the near future to showcase some of these riders.
