Professional Bike Rider  |  Watch CVD Here 

Chris Van Dine is a professional mountain biker that grew up in the small Appalachian town of Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. He is a natural athlete possessing a special blend of skills, but has never chased contests or titles.  Over the last fifteen years he has stayed true to his own autonomously adventurous path - way off the beaten path.  With solo expeditions from Denali to lost Inca ruins deep in the Vilcabamba jungle of South America, to wild urban POV videos, to building tracks and bringing bikes and tools into some of the most dangerous neighborhoods and maximum security prisons of Central America - CVD goes deep and pioneers bonds like no one else.  (His disarming passion to help marginalized youth and fearlessness on and off the bike have developed a unique and powerful network of friends around the globe which enable him to connect some interesting dots.)  He always keeps us guessing, and now he brings his Grand Trunk hammock wherever he goes...
