Ben Reid demonstrating how to rip it up on an Orange Alpine 160

Ben Reid might not be racing World Cups this year but he’s still very much an important part of the Dirt Orange World Team. For starters without him the team wouldn’t have the sweet set of wheels that you see at the start of this video, and secondly this year he’s the one pulling all the strings and keeping the show on the road. There’s a lot more to that than you might think, and it’s a big part of the reason why he’s not racing this year, you can’t do everything. Well, not if you want to do it to the highest level.

Watching this video though just reminded us of how much talent the lad has got, and how much we used to love watching him at a World Cup. All we can do now is hope that we see him return to racing in 2015…
