Hailing from Scotland, this 20 year-old is one of the UK’s most exciting snowboarders and a serious contender for the 2010 Winter Olympics. Ben was first strapped into a board at a mere 9 years-old and sharpened his talent on the Highland slopes of The Lecht and Glencoe. These homegrown roots have paid off – with the rider going from Scottish ‘grom’ to British Champion in no time. Currently riding the World Cup circuit, Ben is still killing it everyday and loves nothing more than a sweetly laid out back flip! His massive amplitude, super-relaxed style and an ability to tear in park, pipe and powder ensure Ben’s got a bag full of tricks and the right attitude to take him straight to the top of his game.
Ben is amped to be joining the 6.0 stable:
“My ambition is to represent my country at the Winter Olympic Games. Nike 6.0 offer me the best opportunity to maximize my ability and reach my full potential in snowboarding, I am really looking forward to working with them”.
His enthusiasm is matched by UK Brand Manager, Jamie McCall:
“We’re all super stoked to welcome Ben onto the Nike 6.0 snow team. His results and competition reputation speak for themselves. It’s also his attitude and approach that will bring a continued focus on performance and style to our expanding UK snow team. We’re looking forward to introducing Ben to the entire UK and European snow team at the BEO in January.”
