Hometown:  San Antonio, Texas

Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Jason has been in Utah for a while and at Contender almost as long. He’s one of our top mechanics and is currently working on a degree at the University of Utah. While he’s great at working on complicated bikes, he’s a big fan of keeping it simple which is why you’ll often find him riding Bonneville Shoreline on his fully rigid, single speed Surly Lowside.

Dream Bike and Why:  Santa Cruz Stigmata. Gravel riding is the dream, roads and trails, nothing stands in your way. 

Fun Fact about you:  I didn’t get into riding until I started with Contender.  I thought it would be fun to learn more about bikes and so I applied for a job and the rest is history
