Truth MX Ben Evans Holds onto Top TenWednesday, May 11, 2011 | 10:05 AM
Coming into the final lites west coast round in Las Vegas, Ben Evans was suffering from a horrific stomach bug that left him unable to eat food or take any fluids for three days. After dropping nearly ten pounds, Ben soldiered through an excruciating Lites west main event to finish 14th. After the race, Ben was immediately rushed to the Medical Unit for two consecutive IV’s.
Ben’s courageous ride secured his 10th place standing in the lites west championship by a mere one point.
The Truth MX / MB1 / Fly / Kawasaki Team would like to commend Ben’s commitment and never give up effort in a story of pure heart and desire. It’s a privilege to be associated with such an exceptional athlete.
Ben is starting to recover and will be ready for Hangtown along with his teammate #814 Bryce Vallee.
A special thanks to the team’s founding partners:
