Kelly Cycle Coaching mountain bike rider Chris Hellman competed in the Marathlon  mountain bike elite mens world championships on the weekend.

Chris works fulltime but has managed to juggle the demands of training and qualified for the World MTB champs by finishing top 20 in a world cup race last year.

Unfortunately, Chris got sick a week out from the biggest race of his career so far, but that didn’t stop him giving it his best shot and finishing 120th on the day.  A fantastic achievement to qualify and prepare well for this event Chris.  Sometimes the stars don’t align on the day but that is all part of being an elite athlete.
