Ben’s injury occurred while repelling rock climbing. As a veteran climber for 12+ years, this accident came as quite a shock. Ben made a silly mistake of not tying a simple knot and ended up falling 35’ to his back, resulting in a T11/12 spinal cord injury.

This will allow me to get outside and ride in the wild and the wonderful places in the west! It will allow me to live a full, healthy, active life. Which I have dearly missed since my accident
