I Have a Dream !
Chris's ultimate goal is to be the first disabled rider to ride the world famous Isle of Man TT course, to do this Chris needs to get a competitive 6oocc race bike and get it adapted to his needs and riding style.
Chris said " The dream has always being to be the first ever one armed disabled rider to finish the TT course, this will take massive commitment from not only myself but my loyal team too, we have to be realistic and take small steps, the next goal is to get a 600cc race bike and test it in the Thundersport GB championship, In 2019 my lap times still have to come down but this year on the Yammaha R1 I have knocked seconds off my previous bests, I’m aiming to Compete at the Isle Of Man in 2023, I need to keep hitting my milestones to get there. I must keep improving and thats why I’m glad to be in the Thundersport GB Championship".
‘I would like to thank my parents as they had to go through the pain of my accident and then watch me get back on the thing that almost killed me and support me even tho they aren't keen on the idea, my in-laws as they are extremely proud of what I've achieved. My team of amazing individuals who without question get me and the bike ready to race at every meeting but most of all my wife and son, Charlotte and Alexander, who have supported me through some troubling times and supported what I want to do, no matter what!'
