Backcountry with Ben Cruz

We linked up with our Nor-Cal heavy hitter, Ben Cruz in his hometown of Novato and turn-up an epic day of riding and break in the 2015 Trails To Ales campaign. Ben started riding at the age of 12 and followed his dream which lead him to his professional career in 2010 at the age of 20. ben-cruz-one-industries-mtb-downhill-racing-bike-3 Just one year later Ben was signed to the Cannondale Overmountain team alongside riders such as his hero Weir and Jerome Clementz. With a full season ahead of him, Ben gave us a little taste of what it’s like shredding the backcountry of his stomping grounds and how his spot has landing him as a top worldwide competitor. ben-cruz-one-industries-mtb-downhill-racing-bike-1 Ohh and lets not leave out the cold ones we polished off after our ride!
