Vans celebrates a decade with Ben Hennon

November 28, 2018

In a recent video, Vans and DIG BMX are celebrating a decade of companiy's collaboration with one and only Ben Hennon. About the project, DIG BMX stated: "Ben Hennon has been there and done pretty much all of it, and made it look fun every step of the way. He recently stepped away from being a Pro BMX rider so Vans thought it only right to celebrate ten years of partnership and edited together some of the best moments they've had together along the way. Whether it was touching the roof at contests or ripping his local setup, everything has always been 100% with Ben."

Matthias Dandois, his Vans teammate added: "I was just a little french flatland kid and remembered being so impressed (yet scared) by Ben when we first met at NASS in 2008. His riding was so powerful and his face was always so crazy when he was riding. That’s the first impression I had: a crazy guy from Northern England. Fast forward 6 years, I’m on filming trip with him in South Africa and we are partying together in the house where we are staying in. I kinda stopped and thought, ‘fuck I had him all wrong!’ Hennon is the coolest, yet toughest, dude you’ll ever meet. He’s always down to ride, always down to party and most importantly always down to laugh. He has his own sense of humour, which some people don’t get, but that fucking cracks me up. When I knew Ben was on a trip, I was always so hyped to go ‘cause I knew I was gonna have the best time! I have thousands of Hennon stories that you’ll probably never hear, and that’s the part of the legacy that he’s left. You made BMX look fucking good mate, and I’m gonna miss going on trips with you! See again you soon I hope! ❤️“
