The defending Super X Adaptive gold medalist, Chris raced professional motocross for ten years and racked up impressive results like a 3rd at the Baja 1000 (in 2000) in the 250cc pro class. In 2002, Chris had his left leg amputated below the knee from a crash he suffered in 1995. Instead of slowing down, Chris sped up. In addition to his XG hardware, Chris has four gold from the Extremity Games (2007-2010) and also races off-road rock buggies professionally. Ridgway's determination is evident in everything he does. He refuses to pursue a regular job so he can continue training full-time and says he would rather "Lose my house than lose a gold medal."
