Chris and Nena first came together as a team in 2017, after running as competitors in the 2016 Rebelle Rally. Their mutual love of challenge, fun competition and food made them a well-matched pair to compete together.
Nena owns and operates Barlow Adventures, which provides Jeep rentals, guided 4-wheeling trips, and 4wd training throughout the Southwest U.S. Nena grew up in the desert Southwest, four-wheeling, hiking, and all things outdoors, with over 20 years as a professional 4wd guide. She is certified Master Trainer by the International 4WD Trainers Association. Nena writes a column for JP Magazine, and is a long-time Ram owner.
Chris hails from Paris, France, with a career in PR. Having released several albums in the 90’s, Chris is, literally, a rock star, and is frequently requested to perform on stage as well as around the campfire in the middle of the desert. She has successfully competed in dozens of rally competitions around the world, is fluent in English, French and Italian, and spearheaded the first French teams to compete in the Rebelle Rally. Chris brings a depth of experience to face the twists and challenges of any competition.
