Ben Baker. Under the radar.
Anyone who knows Ben Baker will know he’s a bit of a Weston Supermare legend. Now based in Bristol, Baker still rides, and rides pretty fast.

Over the years Ben has given a lot to pro and amateur mountain biking, and he’s got the trophies and the injury list to prove it.

After watching how fast he’s going in this video, we’re glad to hear it! Ben Baker Might Have A Day Job, But He Still Pins It | Under the Radar, Ep. 4
