A former champion of both BMX and road bike racing, Blevins has amazing bike-handling skills combined with the fitness of a cross-country superstar.
Pro cross-country racers will often travel to races with both their hardtail bike and a full-suspension bike. If the course is rocky, they’ll usually opt for the full-suspension bike. If the course is smooth, they’ll usually opt for the lighter hardtail. For Christopher Blevins, that bike is his Specialized S-Works Epic Hardtail.
Blevins has been one of the top cross-country riders in America since 2016. That was the year he first started winning pro men’s cross-country races at the national level, beating the top stars in American cross-country racing when he was still in high school at 17. In the years since, Blevins has cemented his status as one of the top race talents in America. Read on to learn more about him and how he sets up his bike to compete at the top level of the sport.
