Eric is head development rider for Brammo electric motorcycles. Eric can often be found racing his mountain bike competitively, contributing articles for Cycle World magazine, hosting the 'Cafe Racer' television series, or most importantly spending time with his family. Ben is also an avid cyclist, and races mountain bikes professionally for Specialized Bicycles.
