Ben Desjardins - Welcome to The Rise !

Ben Desjardins - Welcome to The Rise !

Today, we're more than happy to welcome the homie Ben Desjardins to the family! We've been riding and hanging out with the dude a lot lately, and safe to say he's one of the best and most down to earth riders out there. After taking the win at the2016 Brosefarm Jam on his new Partymaster, Ben showed no signs of slowing down, appearing in most our videos and always killing it. For his welcome video, he teamed up with Jeremy Menduni and went spot hunting around Ottawa. In case you haven't already, make sure to check out the Ben Desjardins Bikecheck we posted a few weeks back. This being said, wait no longer and hit play! Welcome to the Team Ben!

Bikecheck: Ben Desjardins' Partymaster

Bikecheck: Ben Desjardins' Partymaster

The homie Ben Desjardins recently built himself a The Rise Partymaster, and it looks like it didn`t take him too long to get used to it! After riding his new bike for a few weeks, he rode the Brose Farm Jam like a boss and ended up taking the win! Here's a few words from Ben about his new bike:

"It took no time at all to get used to this frame. I hopped on and it felt like I had been riding it for years. The boys at The Rise and Altruiste really outdid themselves with the Partymaster frame! Perfect geometry from the streets to park to dirt. This frame is legit! Thanks The Rise!"

The Rise at Brose Farm Jam 2016

The Rise at Brose Farm Jam 2016

The 2016 Brose Farm Jam took place on June 25th, safe to say it was a total success. The weather was unreal and a lot of beautiful people showed up which made the Brose Farm Jam one of the greatest weekends of the summer. We were on site with our The Rise booth displaying some clothing and Partymaster Frames, a lot of good times were had. We were more than stoked to see that the 2 top podium spots were occupied by riders on Partymasters! Ben Desjardins took the win, followed by Nick Clarke and Al Farrugia. We also gave a Partymaster frame to Kevin Thrower for his dedication, the dude kept going big, crashing and standing back up to land his tricks. We want to take a minute to thank the Brose Family, Steve, Jay and everyone involved for all the good memories, you guys are the best! Peep our video recap above and make sure to check out the pictures below, courtesy of Jeremy Menduni and the homie Aljosa Alijagic.
