Ben Eylander is a professional BMX rider from Lansing, IL and now has teamed up with Cyclops Gear as a flow Ambassador for the company. Riding BMX for as long as he can remember, he has performed in countless events, races, stunt shows, and various competitions. His passion for riding has taken him all over North America including Canada, and states such as North Carolina, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, New York, and every single state in the Midwest.
In the Summer of 2015 Eylander broke his ankle while competing, but still has toughed it out mainly performing stunt show. However, he will start competing in larger scale shows and events once again when fully healed this coming Summer 2016.
Ben also rides for Standard Byke Company, Albes BMX Mail Order and Focus Apparel. He also performs stunt demos for Division BMX and Solution Action Sports.
According to Ben, “I have taken part in numerous contests over the last 6+ years and have done extremely well, but considering my year long injury, it has definitely taken a toll on my training and progression. However, I am now more focused and determined than ever to getting back to the top where I belong so I can once again compete at the professional level where I belong for Summer 2016.”
Team CG welcomes you Ben!
