Chris Akrigg: Best of Mongoose
Mongoose is honored to have been represented by the legendary mountain bike rider Chris Akrigg for the past 12 years. From abandoned warehouses to the countryside of northern England, Chris has crafted his unique style and ability to ride any and all terrain. Sharing his bike-handling skills with the world through his creative video edits, Akrigg has become a household name throughout the bike community.
“Itâs hard to believe itâs been 12 years since I first signed for Mongoose,â said Akrigg. âItâs been an amazing journey! It felt only right to sign off with a mega mix of some of my favorite videos that Iâve done over the last twelve years (over forty it turns out!). When I pulled out all of my old hard drives to put this video together it made me realize just how much fun Iâve had and all of the places Iâve been lucky enough to get to over the years. Iâd like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Mongoose and all of the awesome people that Iâve had the pleasure of working with over the years. Itâs a bit cliche to say but they have been like a second family to me and without their support and the trust and freedom theyâve given me I wouldnât have been able to produce the videos that I love to do! Moving on from Mongoose has been one of the hardest decisions Iâve ever had to make! Hope you enjoy the video as much as Iâve enjoyed making them. The last twelve years with Mongoose have been amazing!
Now let’s sit back and watch Chris throughout the years. Thank you Chris and we can’t wait to see what you do next!
