Jeff Bender, aka ‘Jbendz’, is 25 years young and 2015 will mark his third year riding and racing mountain bikes. Jeff started racing competitively in the Wisconsin Offroad Series and quickly upgraded to Category 1 to finish off his first season. To say he was addicted was an understatement! Shortly after that he picked up and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. He knew if he wanted to be faster, training with his brother, Tom, was the way to go. Very new to the cycling industry, he finds himself eager to learn and progress. 2015 will be Jeff’s first year racing Pro around the country and world if it allows. If he’s not out on his bike, most of his time is spent working at an online consignment shop called Gear Rush.
