Chris Urbauer sold his successful landscape company in Lincoln, Nebraska, and moved to Fort Collins with his family in 2013. He used his strong midwestern work ethic and no-BS attitude to rebuild his business in Northern Colorado. GroundScapes handles all commercial and residential landscape maintenance types, including lawn mowing, snow removal, lawn rehabilitation, aeration, and sprinkler system installs and repairs. You’ll notice these are things that you, as a cyclist, don’t want to waste your riding time with. Why not let Chris and his crews handle it instead?
Much like Matt Skrdla and SPEX, Chris and I most likely raced each other back in Nebraska in the late 1990s during the golden age of the Psychopathy MTB series. Yes, Nebraska actually had/has a great mountain bike series. I think it’s still going strong as the Nebraska Off-Road Series. We haven’t found any photographic evidence that we raced each other but the dates line up. Chris also has an unhealthy obsession with vintage mountain bikes. He has over 80 bikes from the 1980s and 1990s and has traveled all over the country to pick them up. His collection includes frames from Crank Brothers, Fat Chance, Yeti, Bridgestone, Klein, Manitou, and Clark-Kent. He even has a rare, Fort Collins produced, Vertabra.
