During Swampfest, Brant Moore spent a ton of time running around talking to industry guys and riders. One of the guys he sat down with was GT‘s Ben Ward to talk about how he got into BMX and turning it into a career outside of being a pro rider. Ben talks about his different roles from a product designer to juggling multiple roles like team manager, brand manager, etc. He also talks about how things are going at GT and what’s in store for the brand going forward, which is interesting on its own! Ben is one guy who has done so much for BMX from the industry side of things over the years, and his insights are really helpful for anyone who might be looking to figure out how to start working in the BMX industry. Take a look!
