Mongoose and Chris Akrigg have been the one of tightest partnerships in MTB, 12 years in total, talk about loyalty!
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 always epic video edits, Akrigg has become a household name. Chris is onto new adventures, so this ‘best of the last 12 years’ is something pretty special and just showcases how much talent he has on two wheels, of any kind.
“It’s hard to believe it’s been 12 years since I first signed for Mongoose, it’s been an amazing journey! It felt only right to sign off with a mega mix of some of my favourite videos that I’ve 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 realise just how much fun I’ve had and all of the places I’ve been lucky enough to get to over the years. I’d like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Mongoose and all of the awesome people that I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years. It’s a bit cliche to say but they have been like a second family to me and without their support and the trust and freedom they’ve given me I wouldn’t have been able to produce the videos that I love to do! Moving on from Mongoose has been one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make! Hope you enjoy the video as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. The last twelve years with Mongoose have been amazing!”
