Owners / Operators

Dan and Jas

Hey I’m Dan. I’ve been mountain biking for over 20 years. Always a passionate rider I made the risky decision to get my wife a bike. She loved it. Now our enthusiasm for riding has never been greater and we get out on the bike as much as possible. Owning/operating For The Riders has been a great way to get involved in the local mountain biking scene. We’re very grateful for all the opportunities that mountain biking has given us and enjoy giving back to the riding community by supporting local events and riders. 

Sales Manager

Alex Jones

Hi, my name is Alex and I’m the FTR sales manager. I’ve been
working in the bike industry since finishing grade twelve and riding bikes for
as long as I can remember. It goes without saying; my favourite downtime
activity is hitting the local MTB trails. I enjoy a mix of tech and flow, so I
like to travel around SEQ and rarely ride the same trails two weeks in a row. I
have excellent product and bike knowledge and have ridden almost every model
bike we sell. If you need help with your dream build, recommendations for your
next bike or want to purchase your first MTB, I’m your man.

Workshop Manager

Corbin Wieben

Hi, I’m Corbin. I have been riding two wheels for as long as I've been walking. My interest in tinkering and mountain bikes came at a young age and the love hasn’t stopped. The passion was so strong I landed a job at FTR in late 2014 as a Bicycle Mechanic Apprentice. Fast forward to now, I manage the workshop and still love every moment of it. The opportunities the industry has provided me is amazing and it still surprises me everyday with something new!

HARRY Donald

My interest in anything that had wheels and went fast developed at a young age, starting off racing motocross! As I got older I started enjoying mountain biking more and more and soon started racing. From there I've been immersed in the South east Queensland mountain bike scene and it only seemed natural to follow my ambitions and start working in the industry. I've worked as a mechanic since 2018 and still enjoy the never ending progression the industry has to offer. There's always something new coming through the shop that continues to keep things interesting. Come in and say g'day and let me get your bike running silky smooth!

Sales

Tom Benes

Hey I’m Tom. I’ve been riding bikes my whole life but got bitten by the mountain biking bug about 5 years ago. It didn’t take long for me to develop an addiction to mountain biking and quickly found myself working in the industry and have since worked in three different shops across Brisbane. I have now been at ForTheRiders since the start of 2021 and have loved every second of it. Whether you’re a beginner to the sport or have been in it since day one I’ll be able to find the right back for you. So, stop in, say hi and let me help you get on your dream bike.

I might be the team member with the least amount of experience, but all you have to do is mention mountain biking and my eyes light up! It might sound cheesy to say but cycling kind of runs in my blood. Both of my parents were champion road cyclists so it was only a matter of time before my interest in bikes kicked off. It started a few years ago after a conversation with my Dad led to us building a retro roadie together. Flash forward a couple of years (and a couple of bikes) and I’m now honing my MTB skills, moving out of the city to be closer to the trails and to maximise my time in the dirt!
