Team Racer - Paramedic, Chris Berger
HI!! I grew up right here in Southwest Colorado. Being surrounded by large mountains on one side and red rock desert on the other I was drawn explore both environments. The funnest way I found to do this has been on two wheels. I have never raced bikes but I do have a competitive nature and am looking forward to start competing in this realm.
As far as medicine goes I have known from a young age that I was called into medicine. I started my career as a ski patroller at Purgatory. Shortly after that I joined the local fire department as a firefighter/EMT. I worked as an EMT for four years in both front country and more austere environments. Two years ago I went to paramedic school. And have been working as a firefighter/paramedic and a ski patroller since then.
