Ben Goes to School

Having excelled in mountain biking, cyclocross, and road racing over the years, Ben Jacques-Maynes is one of the top up-and-coming talents in North American cycling. In 2018, Ben broke through with his first major stage race win at the Nature Valley Grand Prix in Minnesota.

Prior to that, Ben's greatest results had come on the cyclocross circuit, where he won the U.S. title in the Under-23 division in 2000 and the U.S. collegiate title in 2002. He also snared a collegiate national title on the road, winning the criterium championship in 2003.

In 2018, Ben scored Nevada’s first National Racing Calendar win in the opening time trial of the Fitchburg-Longsjo Classic on June 30. He also earned the team's first NRC podium earlier in the year with a third place finish in the opening uphill time trial at the Redlands Classic on March 31.

Ben credits a trip to Holland for the 2000 World Cyclocross Championships for giving him "the impetus to train harder, dedicate my time, and rise into a national or even international level competitor."

As the sole remaining member of the first incarnation of the Sierra Nevada Pro Cycling Team in 2001, Ben also serves as Nevada's in-house brewing expert.

Ben holds a dual degree from the University of California at Santa Cruz in Economics and Environmental Studies. He grew up racing with his twin brother and former Sierra Nevada teammate, Andy, who retired from pro cycling following the 2003 season. Ben and his wife Goldi's first child, Chase, was born on January 16, 2019.
