In September 24, 2006, Ben was injured in a motorcycle accident, which left him with a T5-T6 complete Spinal Cord Injury. Ben spent five weeks in inpatient therapy and discovered wheelchair racing about 5 months after his injury. He soon found the mountains and the ability to ski and has not looked back. Skiing with his family, while challenging himself has been a blessing to Ben, and he looks to keep going strong.
