About Ben

Benoit is part of the talented posse of French superpipe stars which includes three-time gold medalist Kevin Rolland and 2013 Tignes champ Marie Martinod. The 23-year-old used awesome amplitude at XG Aspen 2016 (his second hit was 19'2" out) and powerful skiing to collect his first X Games medal (bronze) in four attempts. It was quite a party for the French at the bottom of the SuperPipe in 2016 -- Benoit literally jumped into Rolland's arms when his teammate was named the winner.
