Ben is the founder of Evergreen Gravel Racing and sets up the annual Dark Divide and Evergreen Gravel Grinder races in Washington. Summed up in the race packet, "The Dark Divide 300 is a challenging mixed-terrain cycling route that traverses the expansive ancestral lands of the Squaxin Island Tribe, Nisqually Tribe of Indians, Cowlitz Indian Tribe, and Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, through what is known commonly as southern Cascade Mountain Range in Washington State, which is encapsulated in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest."
