Meet The Team
Name: Chris Hall
Role: Team Leader
Customer Service Experience: Originally I pursued a career in the Civil Engineering and Construction industry, working as a project manager most recently. After 10 years I decided it was time for a change to something I was more passionate about and I started my career with 99 Bikes.
Riding Experience: I started out dirt jumping and BMX riding, before getting into mountain biking which I still enjoy today. I've ridden trails at places like the YouYangs, Bright, and Forrest. I recently started road riding, and completed a long distance endurance ride for charity from Torquay Victoria to Adelaide which has got me hooked on road riding now as well!
