SuperB XC rider, Chris Seistrup began building and riding bikes when he was a freshman in high school. After living most of his adult years in Northern Illinois, he and his family moved to Prescott, Arizona. Chris immediately started riding more than he ever thought possible and began plotting routes all over Northern AZ. In the last 5 years, he has cycled nearly 30,000 miles.
I was born with Hemophilia, a bleeding disorder that reduces my blood’s ability to clot. In 2016, I rode the Pacific Coast Highway to raise money and awareness for the bleeding disorder community. In 2019, my goal is to become the first hemophiliac to ride in the Tour Divide Mountain Bike Race. At the same time, I will be raising money for the Save One Life charity. Save One Life helps people with bleeding disorders all over the world.
The realization of the impact I have on the lives of others living with bleeding disorders is a huge source of motivation for me. Not only do I want to know what I am capable of, I can show a whole generation what they could do.
