Chris Wist MTB

Chris Wist, one of my best friends, is a highly passionate MTB rider and has been for years. When Chris is not working hard to support his kids or spending time with them he's out riding his bike and working on the trials. He is a father who loves his kids more than anything and he spent the last 6 months working hard in the medical industry and saving up diligently and responsibly to buy a decent Enduro bike to compete on. You should see the bikes he's "made it work" on.

On the first day of 2021, he was involved in a major car accident. Another driver cut him off causing him to slam his car into a concrete wall, knocking him unconscious. By the grace of God, he is physically okay with a minor concussion and a little bruising; was released from the hospital the same day.

Chris's car was totaled, but most, unfortunately, his brand new, hard-earned mountain bike was strapped to the back of his car. While Chris was helped out of his wrecked vehicle and while coming out of his fog he asked if anyone knew where his bike was. As the generous individuals helping Chris pointed at the bike laying in the middle of the road 100 yards away, a truck drove up and a pretty disgusting individual throws Chris's prized bike into the back of the truck and drives off. Chris Wist entered the new year without a bike and a car and he could use some serious help getting back on his feet, with not just his bike.

If you knew Chris the way I know Chris, then you'd know he's the last person to deserve this. This man sacrificed so much this year and doesn't deserve to be set back to zero. Let's get Chris a new bike and start this man's New Year right!
