CXC Team member Jennie Bender, the 2011 Birkie Classic Winner and 2012 Birkie skate 3rd place finisher will be entering the Telemark Forest Mountain Bike Race this Saturday, July 14th in Cable, Wisconsin.

While Bender is an avid road cyclist, she is completely new to mountain biking and is looking forward to having fun. Like many other skiers, she sees this event as a great way to test her fitness.

Bender is currently sitting just less than 3 minutes behind Caitlin Gregg in the CXC Triple standings and she is looking to make up ground before the Birkie Trail Run in September.  Both athletes have great fitness right now and it should be battle to the finish.
