*Revised edit for Ben Power's 2011 Bio. This version includes footage from the Gravity Cup Series of 2011/12.*
Ben Power is one of the many Aussies juniors turning heads on the national and international MTB scene.
Ben's moto style allows him to stand out from the crowd and earned him a spot in the 2011 Australian Junior DH Team.
Ben placed 23rd at Champery riding in the green and gold jersey for Australia and is a rider to look out for as he progresses into the elite competition.
Myself and Ben spent a day filming in sunny Coffs Harbour on the central coast of Australia.
Working with Ben was a pleasure. He was keen to try some wild lines and get a little rowdy on the bike, and what you see is the result of a hard days work out on the hill.
Ben would like to thank his sponsors for their ongoing support:
