Team / Ben Dubreuil
When it comes to winning races in Quebec, Ben has been a real pain in the ass for Niko. Beyond racing Ben has been experimenting with all sorts of slide variations, switch stunts and launching off whatever he can find. Recently he and his lady-friend tried to conquer the great west by starting a new life on a skate adventure in a motor-home, Joe Lehm even let them sleep in the masonite dust at the Santa Fe skate school. Their motor-home broke down and Ben was forced to turn tricks all up the west coast until he could mooch off of the eccentric Claude-Eric in Whistler… that didn’t last too long and now he’s back home to be a pain in Niko’s ass again all summer.
