About Chris

X Games Aspen 2015 is Chris Heppding's fourth SnoCross Adaptive appearance and he's in much better shape than in 2014 when a motocross accident hampered his training time. He has limited use of his right arm due to a spinal cord injury resulting from a car accident when he was 7-years-old. He's an intense, all-around athlete with a "compete to win" mentality.

  • Chris is making his fourth X Games appearance at Aspen 2015. He has partial paralysis to his upper right side, including the pectoral, lat and tricep as a result of being hit by a car at age 7. His snowmobile has a throttle on the left handlebar, along with the brake and he straps his right arm to the handlebar.
