From Brantford, "The Champ", 23 year old has been racing since he was 14, and every year has gotten faster and harder to beat. Finally winning the 1998 Canadian Championship! A real crowd favorite with a talent of making any line around the track work for him. He is one of the few that can pass well on the outside at Welland. Chris is in his third year of university and says: "I have chosen not to ride overseas yet because my education comes first."

Ha! He raced in Argentina in 1998! Read Chris Hesmer's report, from December 19, 1998 Chris is involved in helping the RCMP in a program that encourages kids to stay off drugs. "Racing Against Drugs" travels to local schools, and lets our kids meet the athletes, and talk about how important it is to stay straight.
