Catching Up With Ben Deakin

So this year started well with a few wins at smaller regional downhill events before the season fully got started before then going back to square one after a huge crash in New Zealand in the WhipOff at Crankworx which resulted in multiple fractures so I've most certainly been on the back foot.

Since a long road of recovery, my first race back was my first Enduro where I placed 3rd fastest overall which I was made up with after being off a bike for so long. Recently, I finally got around to competing in the Megavalanche in Alpe D'Huez where unfortunately I had a mechanical so finished the qualifier in 14th, which set me back for the main event but what an experience that was to make the main finals and be in the carnage myself. 

So this year I'm concentrating on mainly having a fun year doing a few projects for various online magazines and fun videos, along with a few fun races such as the Air DH at Whistler with the intention being back to speed and ready and raring for next season.
