Ben Wallace wins Silver medal in BMX Dirt final at X Games Austin 2014.
Ben Wallace might not be a household name in the world of BMX but he’s got one thing going for him many riders might be jealous of – the ability to compete on both dirt and street courses.
While he began, like most, at a young age, it wasn’t until Mongoose took him under his wing that his career began to take off. Now at 26 – soon to be 27 – Wallace’s star is on the rise, due in large part because he can compete at the highest level in street, mini-ramp and dirt competitions. Last year Wallace took the top spot at the Red Bull Empire of Dirt and he hopes his winning ways continue.
The Portsmouth, England native now has his sights set on the United States, and more importantly San Francisco, where he’ll compete in the Dew Tour Toyota City Championships October 11-13. We recently spoke to Wallace about the upcoming event, where we learned he’s excited to fly across the pond and once again compete – but even more excited to begin relocating to the states.
