Fresh off winning the Short Track XC World Championships, Christopher Blevins continued his breakthrough season with a win at the UCI World Cup in Snowshoe, West Virginia. Amazingly, Chris is the first American winner of an Elite MTB World Cup in 34 years.
“This meant absolutely everything,” said Blevins after crossing the finish line. “I mean, I’d be lying if I said I expected anything close to this or even really dreamed of it. It just shows, there is so much magic in sport regardless of what it is and this is everything to me. To do it with my family, all the USA fans, and obviously, in the USA. I’m over the moon.”
We’re proud of Chris and absolutely everyone who contributed to this victory. We have travelled over and back from Europe, to the US, and to Africa this season, but moments like this make it all worthwhile.
Here’s to many more.
Enjoy the reports of Chris’s win from a memorable day in Snowshoe.
