Joe Vadeboncoeur (President)

Joe has spent a lifetime riding mountain bike trails and working in the cycling industry.  Joe has lived in the state for more than 30 years and spent a lot of time in our area.  He moved full time to Cambaland in 2018, where he founded a consulting business based in Hayward, and consults with various outdoor industry clients from around the country.  Joe has managed billion dollar companies, developed products in the cycling industry, lead global teams and helped create strategic vision for many organizations.  He is very stoked to live on the CAMBA trails and to help the organization prepare for an amazing future where mountain biking brings continued significant economic impact to the region.  “I spent the last 30 years selling someone a new bike, now I am excited to help them have an amazing experience with those bikes.”

Ben Welnak (Director)

Ben is originally from Southeastern Wisconsin. After graduating college at UW La Crosse, he lived in several Midwestern cities, Denver, and Western North Dakota before relocating to Hayward in 2017, providing a lot of opportunity to experience mountain biking throughout the country.

Ben started mountain biking in 2006 after five years of other endurance sports including running and triathlons of various distances. In 2012, he created Mountain Bike Radio and has been dedicated to mountain biking since. He has a lot of experience racing all distances, including 24 hour solos, 12 hour solos, 100 miles, 50 milers, XC distance, fatbikes, gravel, and everything in between.

He’s married to wife, Amy, with two young children – son, Claeson, and daughter, Paige. They are all very supportive and hear about bikes way more than any normal family. Ben hopes that his passion for mountain biking and the outdoors drives his commitment to creating, improving, and maintaining opportunities in the outside world.
