We first got a taste of Chris through the BNGBNGMCR crew when Thaddeus mentioned that Chris had been working on a video part for the BNGBNG KYSFB DVD.
We ended up taking Chris to the Backyard Jam series in 2019 and saw first hand his riding and how consistant he was. And over the last few months have really seen Chris push the Manchester scene.
Chris also took part in the Vans The Circle video project getting the ender clip and smashing it when out riding with the lads.
