Chris Johnston


Chris is originally from New Zealand and discovered cycling as a bicycle messenger in Wellington, New Zealand, in 2007. 

That same year Chris won a 24 hour solo race on his commuter bike, entering on a whim just to prove those wrong who said it couldn't be done.

A few years later, Chris moved to British Columbia, Canada, to pursue his passion for riding bikes and to challenge himself on truly technical mountain terrain.

Today he travels and races with Dylan Wolsky as one half of the Nomads, competing in elite downhill, cross-country and enduro events all over the place.
