After a busy off season getting the new team race truck ready for its maiden voyage, Ben took some time off to do what he does best and ride a bit of downhill at a local track in Ireland. Conditions were wet and muddy which is nothing out of the ordinary for the emerald isle, but after losing the front wheel on some hidden greasy rocks Ben took a big spill and managed to end up with what seems commonly known as a “Boxers Fracture” on his hand.
He managed to break the knuckle off his 5th Metacarpal joining the finger to the wrist so is currently sporting a cast which should be off pretty soon. This did cause him to miss out on the first British National round last weekend but he hopes to be back riding again in no time.
