We welcomed Jorden to our staff in Fall 2017, but have known him since we opened our store.  Jorden is well known for his mountain biking and fatbiking around the state and country, but he has also recently taken up nordic ski racing and finishing amongst the top of the crowd, Including winning the 28K VASA Freestyle in 2018.

Jorden isn't foreign to the waterways either.  He has competed in multiple AuSable River Canoe Marathons and other local canoe races. IN 2018, he won the mixed division in the ARCM and took 13th overall.   Endurance mud races and local running races hand out a plenty of awards to this endurance addicted star.  In the bicycle world, Jorden has too many championships to list. . .he was the 2015 Arrowhead 135 miler champion--the youngest ever.  He's won the Peak to Peak, Ore to Shore, X100, Lutsen 99er, Yankee Springs TT.  We could go on and on, but why? He's just damn good on a bicycle.
