Chris Kovarik has been a strong figure and personality in the mountain bike world since he first burst on the world cup racing scene in ’99. Under his belt, he holds several national, international and world cup wins and track records, winning margin records, and countless podium appearances at all levels of the sport. His aggressive riding and image make him a favourite with the media and his skills on a bike are owed to his natural ability and years of dedication and experience. In 2011 Chris, alongside his wife and mountain bike athlete Claire Buchar, began Kovarik Racing: an entity for them to give back in aspects of their sport: racing, coaching, rider development, and brand ambassadorship.
When not riding his bike, Chris keeps himself busy working on his truck, off roading and drifting his car.
