Sandy Visnack

Sandy is the newest member of the leadership team at the Bend Endurance Academy, coming on board as Executive Director in January 2018.

Sandy’s love for the outdoors stems from a childhood growing up in Vermont and then living in beautiful places like Lake Placid, NY, Steamboat Springs, CO, Bainbridge Island, WA and, of course, right here in Bend.  With every move west, her passion for the outdoors and for skiing and cycling continued to grow. Sandy and her husband, David, have passed on their passions to their daughter, Natasha, who is on the Cyclocross and Mountain Bike Comp Teams at the Academy.

“It was my daughter who introduced me to the Bend Endurance Academy through her participation in the Cycling Program.  I watched her develop as an athlete and a teammate and knew there was something special about the organization!  Every day I come to work excited to serve our athletes and families and support our program directors, coaches and staff.  I see the Bend Endurance Academy as a place that not only helps athletes achieve their goals, but a place where both athletes and families feel connected to one another, to the coaches, and the greater outdoor community.  For many, the Academy is a second home and that is a terrific place to be.”



Bill Warburton

With the Academy since the beginning, Bill has been coaching junior cycling since 2005.

“Cycling has been my passion since I was a little kid. It’s been a great way to meet friends, see the world and be part of a dynamic community.”  Bill loves working with BEA coaches and riders to make the program fun every day.”
