 Live fast, Die young. These two lived very fast, and died too young. Two young rippers that had massive careers in front of them, Ben came 27th at Shladming in the world cup last year. They both has big hopes in a sport they loved. Rest in Peace boys, hope the riding is good up there, if not, build some killer tracks for when we all join you!
