Ben has been training with EF now for 7 years making big strides each year. Last year was Ben’s first year on the Junior Elite High Performance Team, and he had a breakthrough year qualifying for nationals as a 13 year old. This winter has been huge for Ben with tons of time dropped across the swim, bike, and run resulting in a huge performance at the Clermont Draft Legal Challenge at the beginning of March. This past Monday, Ben performed a 2 mile run time trial setting a new personal record. Even more important than all of his amazing athletic talents is Ben’s attitude. Ben is always welcoming to new members of the team, always caring, and always a hard worker. Ben never gives you anything less than his very best, and it is paying off.
