Binging King Returns
Binge Pro Rider Announcement! Ben King will be joining us at the 2019 edition of the Bookwalter Binge. Ben will arrive at the Binge after another action packed and power filled race season with Dimension Data where he raced not one, but TWO Grand Tours with both the Tour de France and Vuelta Espana.
If you have ever turned on the TV during a bike race that Ben is in, you likely have seen him off the front of the pack, forcing a breakaway and going big. The 2019 professional cycling season has been no different.
Fortunately for fellow Bingers who want to chat with Ben, get a few breakaway tips and hear stories from the Tour, Ben is a laid back Appalachian boy from just up the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia and he won’t mind slowing down his usual infernal pace to tell some tales and reminisce on what has been another successful season.
After my wife, Jenna and I had such a great time at the Binge last year, we can’t miss coming back. It’s everything good about cycling with great people in my beloved Blue Ridge during one of the most beautiful times of the year. We can’t wait! — Ben King
That’s right, Jenna is coming to Binge too. Master of the camera and selfie-stick, Ben’s photography just might show up in the raffle this year. (TJ Eisenhart isn’t the only artist in the pro peloton!)
