Name: Kristopher Artz
A.K.A: Kris – Krizzz
Years Mt. Biking: 11
Coaching Since: 2020
Favorite Trail Style: Any trail I can ride my mountain bike on. I love pedaling uphill to ride flowy downhills with lots of speed, rollers, and jumps. If I am riding downhill/park I enjoy a combo of flowy trails with big berms with some jumps, drops and a little bit of tech thrown in somewhere along the way. The longer the trail the better!
