Ben Bostrom: Bad Ass

Paul Carruthers | September 25, 2008
Yamaha’s Ben Bostrom competed in the 8-hour solo portion of the 24 Hours of Adrenaline Mountainbike race in Hurkey Creek Park near Idyllwild, California, last weekend. And he won.

Bostrom, who is on the verge of winning the AMA Supersport Championship with just this weekend’s round at Laguna Seca remaining, beat the second-placed rider by a full lap. Bostrom completed eight laps of the grueling course during his eight-hour stint on the bike.
