The race season is here and Chris is taking no prisoners!
Chris attended Victoria's Secret in Truro and placed 4th in his category for the first mountain bike race of the season. The course was a mixture of doubletrack, twisty, rooty trail and two formidable climbs.
Chris then raced in the crit around the Halifax Commons last weekend for the start of Bikeweek in HRM. Chris had to have his gears switched over to 'junior gearing' and still controlled the field and took first place in the 'under 17' category.
As an added bonus Chris rode as part of HRM Bike Week to celebrate the new law requiring 1 metre between car and cyclist on HRM roads. He road across the bridge with a group of cyclists to downtown Halifax.
Chris is still training and riding with the hopes of earning a spot on Team Nova Scotia for the Canada Games in 2012/2013.
