Chijioke has been killing it for a long time and his The Hunt section this year definitely solidified that he belongs on a proper brand, so it’s good to see he’s been picked up by MacNeil… Scroll below to get their words and click the photo (or right here) to check out his new whip.

“We’re real psyched to announce that one of our good friends and one helluva rider, Chijioke Okafo, is now part of the MacNeil crew! Chi has been a long-time friend of everyone in the company for years now and has been killing it forever. On top of that, Chi and Silva are a dynamic duo when it comes to filming and riding and he’s real tight with the rest of the team. Chijioke is also going to be the first ‘full-factory’ team rider and built up this new bright red Calico V2 kit to get rolling. Expect to see a lot more from Chi as the year progresses including a proper ‘welcome to the team’ and be sure to check out some more photos of his fresh new whip after the jump. Welcome to the family, bud!”
