Hi gang. I rarely do this, but I’ve known Chris Powell for years, and I consider him a friend and good role model.
This season Chris got dropped by Specialized and scrambled to assemble his own race program. He won the Angel Fire 4X on a bike he had to pay for — his first win in five years as a pro. Chris is a fierce competitor, but more importantly he’s a nice guy and a serious business student.
Chris loves riding and racing, but he’s also working hard to make sure bikes remain his passion, not his sole means of support. Hey kids: Ride hard. Study harder.
