PNG - 242.7 kb He is the greatest champion our sport has ever seen, and yet photos of him in action are fairly rare. We’re talking, of course, about Koxx rider Benito Ros, nine-time Elite 20" World Champion, the man who has won more titles than the most successful 26" rider, Gilles Coustellier and Kenny Belaey, together. Marco Patrizi, who has sent us superb photos of the world’s best riders over the course of the season, spent a weekend with Benito in Cartagena, a city on the Mediterranean coast of Southern Spain, taking photos of the grand master in action. Marco said a few words about the extraordinary photoshoot: “I visited Benito during the first weekend of December, just after he got back from Chile, where he had been performing shows as he does every year. I’d gone to see his daughter Emma, who was born last month, but as I had my camera with me, I decided to take a few photos of my good friend in action while I was there. I thought I’d share them here so that all of Benito’s fans could see them!"

And here’s the first set of photos from that weekend, taken one night on the rocks by the sea. Benito works on his precision on some jutting rocks, just as night falls. Two more galleries will follow shortly. Big thanks to Marco for sending them over!
