Ben has now competed on the World Cup Circuit for 5 years and is regarded as one of the fiercest competitors on tour. Following his Paralympic Games debut in Sochi, Ben was invited to compete in the first ever Snowboard Cross Adaptive event at the 2015 Winter X Games in Aspen, an exclusive competition where he finished 11th.
In 2016, Ben returned to finish 3rd at the X Games, winning the first medal of his career, an achievement that ranks amongst the highlights of his career. Ben has also competed at Dew Tour, medalled again at X Games, medalled at World Cup and in 2018 was ranked overall 5th in the world.
Most recently, Ben competed at the Pyeongchang 2018 Paralympic Games, becoming the 1st Australian to consecutively be the youngest on the team at two Paralympic Games.
