COLUMBUS, Ohio (Feb. 21, 2014) — American Kenda Rubber Industrial Co. Ltd. will provide entertainment at the Feb. 22 Ohio State University (OSU) men's basketball game against the Minnesota.

During halftime, Kenda mountain bike stunt rider Mike Steidley will perform various stunts on his bicycle including a drop from over 10 feet, Kenda said.

"The crowds always love the show and I'm ready to throw down all of my best tricks." Mr. Steidley said.

"This is the largest and loudest crowd I perform for throughout the year — they always bring it and I wouldn't miss this opportunity."

Liza Hegemier, marketing associate for Kenda, said Columbus is not only home to OSU, but to Kenda as well and the company is a proud supporter of Ohio State Athletics.

"We are excited to bring Mike back to the Schottenstein Center for another year. He never fails to entertain a crowd."
