10th Overall AMA 2004

VIR was the last race of the year and went without to much tension, Chris had to finish in front of Tony Merring to clinch 11th and if all went bad for Danny Eslick, Chris could come out and clinch 10th. It all went Chris way at the last race and Chris was 10th overall for 2005.
Not bad for a young fella, Chris finished 15th last year, so 5 position increase in the rankings, is a good sign of things to come.

We had a disappointing Suzuki World Cup, Chris crashed on the opening race while running 4th and looked like a podium was coming his way. To Bad it didn't work out this year, but there's always next year.

Chris had been asked back to Team Hammer, Valvoline EMGO Suzuki so we'll see how that goes, the details have not been worked out yet, so we'll report back when we know.
