Ben Valentin stops his career
Well-deserved retirement for Ben Valentin ! The young ski halfpipe champion, 25 years old, decided to hang up spatulas and put an end to his sports career, after 10 seasons at the highest level. The athlete coached by Greg Guenet, teammate of Marie Martinod and Kevin Rolland, is currently undergoing rehabilitation after his knee anterior cruciate ligament rupture. This injury occurred in December 2017 in the Copper Mountain halfpipe, three months before the Pyeongchang Olympics.
After the announcement of the retirement of Marie Martinod, it is therefore another figure of the French freestyle who says stop, we wish Ben Valentin the best for the future ! Be happy guys, the skier of La Plagne (3rd X Games Aspen 2016) proposes us an amazing immersion of 10 minutes in his last season … A beautiful portrait signed Rossignol, for the web serie “Band of Heroes “.
Thanks Ben Valentin and good ride !
