Monti has always loved motorcycles but especially the dirt variety ever since his early days riding his old BSA Bantam around the local farmer’s field. He did a bit of Twinshock racing in his 40s riding his 1980 440 Maico although by this time the urge to race had then, unfortunately, faded a bit. This was when he decided to start taking pictures of dirt bikes rather than riding them and after forty years as a truck driver he has now retired.  Chris can now devote more of his time to his passion for keeping the old vintage workhorses alive through the contributions he makes to VMX Magazine from his home base in Scotland.
