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. 

Store Manager

Milan Dimitrijev

Hi, I'm Milan and I've been working in the Brisbane bike industry for over ten years. I'm a qualified bike mechanic and more recently a passionate and commited sales person. I've made an effort to ride and research a range of brands that we sell here at FTR. This first hand knowlege helps me provide accurate and relevant reccomendations when on the sales floor.

If you see me riding my Forbidden Druid at Westy's, don't be affraid to come and have a chat, even if it's not bike related, I'm always up for a yarn.

Sales Consultant

Ryan Donataccio

Hi, I’m Ryan. I have been riding bikes since a young age, I first
started BMX racing when I was about 8 and raced in state and national championships.
I then discovered mountain biking and picked it up naturally and my passion for
mountain biking went from there. I enjoy riding at my local Mt. Cotton and hitting
up Boomerang Farm on occasion. When I’m not riding my bike, I’m either 4wding
or camping. If you see me in store or on the trails come say hi!


James Weir

Hi, I'm James and I've been working in bike shops as a bike mechanic for the last 6 years and have completed my trade qualification as a bicycle mechanic in this time. I enjoy riding my track bike, camping and hiking in my spare time.

Aiden Catakovic

Hey, I'm Aiden and am one of the newest members to the team. Growing up I've played an array of sports but found mountain biking to one of my favourites. Over the past four years I've dived deeper into the sport with Mt Cotton being my favourite local ride. When I'm not riding I often find myself eagerly researching the latest and greatest technology in the mountain biking world or playing ice hockey.
