Ben was riding at his local track by the time he was five years old. Growing up, he was there every Sunday morning to train and race. That dedication and work ethic have paid off and his results show it: stage wins at the Giro Ciclistico d’Italia and the Ronde de l’Isard, both the Irish road and U23 time trial championships, plus several top-ten stage and GC results. He is most proud of not only winning a stage at the 2019 Tour de l’Avenir but also being the youngest stage winner in the history of the race. He loves getting in breakaways and when the racing is full gas, he just reminds himself to keep pedaling.
