Ben Power & Banshee Legend Win Queensland Series
Ben Power piloted his Banshee Legend MKII into 2nd place in the final round of the Queensland State Downhill Sunshine Series 2010 which was enough to take out overall 1st place. The final race was held at the Kenilworth track located on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland and was in excellent condition albiet very loose in the top section which caused Ben some issues in his race run.
Ben qualified in 1st position with a very comfortable 6 second margin however; come race time and some indecision at a critical time of the race saw Ben relegated to 2nd place by a mere 0.52 seconds. The Legend continues to punch above it's weight and is drawing immense interest from riders attending events in Australia - pity there were not a few more available for sale Downunder!!
Ben now heads off to North Queensland to contest the Queensland Championships in September then further training in preparation of the Australian National Series which commences on 5-7 November at his home track of Illinbah Queensland.
