Congratulations to Team CRC BMX rider Ben Hennon who has just been crowned champion of Red Bull Ramparanoia in Campo de Piedra Pomez, Argentina!

An awesome landscape for riding, the Campo de Piedra Pomez (pumice field) is more than 75,500 hectares long, with natural ramps and drops formed more than 500,000 years ago, as a result of volcanic erosion.

After a day of practice, the group of invite-only riders, including Ben Hennon (UK), Daniel Dhers (Venezuela), Tobias Wicke (Germany), Sebastian Keep (UK), Ruben Alcantara (Spain), Kevin Kalkoff (France), Gary Young (US), Aaron Ross (US), Martin Postigo (Argentina), Iñaki Mazza (Argentina), got to put down their best tricks.

Ben Hennon took the overall win with a consistent level of riding, demonstrating creativity and good adaptation to the course and the climate.

“I feel honoured to have been invited to this competition and I am happy to have won. The experience was amazing … without a doubt Red Bull Ramparanoia helps to increase the level of BMX even more, because we really had to outdo ourselves to ride in a place far away from everything, at 4000 metres above sea level and with totally amazing and challenging natural ramps,” said Hennon after the win.

Four-time BMX X Games winner Daniel Dhers, meanwhile, picked up the best trick award with a 360 tail whip to barspin.
