The year is 2008 and Chris Kovarik has a new contract to celebrate having put pen to paper with Chain Reaction Cycles, riding an Intense 951 on their new World Cup team.
The Aussie has always been synonymous with Jeff Steber's Californian brand. Remember the early days of his 'no kneepads' campaign? The 14 second smashing of the entire Fort William World Cup field in 2002? Kovarik's flat-out style has always been achingly watchable.
This section pretty much sums up all that there is to love about watching Kovarik - fast, stylish and unpredictable.
