Rather unexpectedly, Chris posted a statement on his Facebook. As I know many of you were in the dark with details and concerned to know how and what could of happened to the legend, here it is straight from Chris… Truly an amazing human that I’m glad is still with us…

“Okay, so as most have heard by now, I had a very bad accident recently while riding… well, after riding. I was out riding with the Kink crew and shortly after the session, as we were loading up the van, I went into cardiac arrest. My friends most definitely saved my life. Jay and Nathan both called 911, Chad and Darryl ran to the nearest hospital while Matt rode his bike there. When that nearest hospital didn’t help, they came back to find Calvin Kosovich administering CPR.

What I am suffering from is called HCM (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy). Click on the link at the bottom for more information.I would highly suggest to everybody out there to take a CPR class because it definitely saved my life and it could save you or somebody you love.Currently, I am at the University of New Mexico Hospital where I am receiving the utmost care. From here on out,I will be wearing a device called ICD to prevent this from happening again. Check out the other link below.Words cannot do justice to explain the gratitude I have for the outpouring love and support my family and I are receiving from all of you. ❤️”
