Chris joined his first cycling club, Dunedin CC, in 1992, run by Ray and Doreen Harris. Over these early years, he raced Time Trials, Mountain Bike, Road and Track. As the other events dropped away, Chris concentrated on Track and in 1994, he joined The City of Edinburgh Racing Club, the most successful track club in Britain.
