Vital would like to thank Chris for his hard work while at the UCI. The last 5 years of World Cup Downhill racing have been incredible, and you're a big reason for that!
Chris Ball has left his position as the UCI Technical Delegate for gravity disciplines after 5 years of service. The liaison between riders, organizers, media and the governing body, Chris has ensured that World Cups venues and courses have been safe, consistent and exciting for both riders and spectators alike. With a heart for Enduro racing, Chris was helping spearhead a movement for a UCI-sanctioned Enduro series. While progress was made, ultimately the UCI did not move forward with the discipline and as a result, Chris knew the time had come to move on and focus his efforts elsewhere.
