Rider’s Biography:
He started riding bmx race when he was 5 years old, after 8 years he
got more into jumping and doing tricks so he started with freestyle bmx and did that for about 10 years. Since 2006 he has been riding more and more with his 26’’ bike and is pulling similar tricks to the ones he did on his bmx bike. He really enjoys it and has a lot of fun. In spring 2008 the Specialized team rider was the first guy ever to show a 360 double tailwhip during Vienna Air King. Of course he won the the Panasonic-Best-Trick-Competition in front of 10,000 people by pulling that mad move. Benny ripped the next contests like a maniac.
