RIDES | Santa Cruz Bronson, Bos Deville Fork. 

Chris has ridden SantaCruz bikes since the first shipment landed in NZ back in the 90's. From a solid racing background, he's whittled things down to one event each year he'll still take seriously and that's the DME.  Chris runs MTB Skills Clinics, NZ's longest running (since 2004) skills provider, and he also runs the BOS NZ Service Centre.  Having been involved with trail advocacy since he started mountain biking, with MTBNZ and as a life member of the Nelson MTB Club, 'Mildie' now puts a bunch of time into chairing the MTB Trails Trust, driving trail development and advocacy across the Top of the South, without doubt an amazing place to ride trails. On a national level he's also part of an advisory panel for the NZ Recreation Association, an organisation that is moving to make a real difference for recreational mountain biking in NZ.
