 CRC Nukeproof, if you're reading this, please add Kovarik to your roster next season. With his mate Sam Hill and 2 other brits, now would that be the baddest DH team ever?

 nukeproof support the Kovariks, parts etc be hard getting Chris off an Intence frame...

 That is why they left the CRC team in the first place as they were switching to Nukeproof frames the next year.

 Love watching his videos and riding style. That said this isn't my favorite clip of his. I liked the one where he jumped ropes at WBP and doubled-up the entrance to the wall ride section on Freight Train. "THIS IS A MOTHA F**KIN' INVITAAA-TION!!!" yeah that one

video production maybe not as polished but god damn the lines he takes - did he sell his soul to Satan like Robert Johnson did for the blues?

 This year we tried to film mostly outside the bike park, due to our last two videos with Chris being primarily in the park. Also he filmed bike park lines in episode one of the series.

 This song and many other Machinehead tunes are on my riding playlist. I certainly think I'm riding like Karver, but I really know I'm not... Good times.
  • 1 1
 the only issue i had with it was the music wasn't entirely in time with the video... could have been a lot tighter, and i have seen some wicked metal edits with karver before

 That was proper SHREDDING music fitting for proper SHREDDING!!!!!!!!!!

 Does anyone have the scoup on why Kovarik isn't racing WC anymore? I know there were some sponsorship issues at one point, but I would think that if he actually wanted to race, that picking up new sponsorship wouln't be an issue for him. At this point, I'm starting to wonder if it's because he enjoys the BC Stank more than UCI drug tests.

 He raced the second to last world cup and missed quali's because he got a flat. I think he go hurt on the last world cup this season as well and couldn't race. can't remember now though.

 He's pretty much a privateer now. He gets some support from spnsors, but I don't think he has a salary, I think his only money income are the MTB camps he organizes. Or maybe he does get a salary from Intense, but it deosn't seem to be enough. He was quite pissed when he couldn't race in Norway, because he had spent loads of money getting there.

 Dear Chris,

How many trees do you hit annually?
  • 3 0
 They don't count if they don't slow you down, or if they are uprooted.
  • 2 2
 anyone can shred a sandy corner most skillful thing I saw was a tailwhip, a lot of rear brake riding, don't see why people like this get sponsored at slightly above average riding skills

 wow 6 races I think I did that many races my 10th grade yr in high school, whats your point he still is a ok rider nothing spectacular.
  • 3 0
 I hope you're joking. I've witnessed Vouilloz, Peat, Vasquez, Saiz, Hill, Rennie, Gwin, Ronning, Hannah, Minnarr, Gracia, Lopes, Graves, Carter...every World Cup champion in the past 15+ years and Kovarik is the one who will blow your mind in person, hands down.

I was at Mt. Snow when he destroyed everyone 3 years running, but for blown rims. Until you've seen him go by, you won't understand.

Still holds the record for largest margin of victory in a World Cup. If his bike didn't break, he won.
