Nottingham, United Kingdom: Flare Clothing Company, the Mountain Bike clothing manufacturer; is super excited to announce that one of their sponsored riders, Ben Moore, has just won the title at the world’s only night-time urban downhill race. The Red Bull Dark Knight event took place on the 4th June in Singapore and saw riders from all over the globe tackle the treacherous city course which started at the top of Singapore’s national stadium and finished on the picturesque waterfront.

With over 400 entrants in total, Ben needed to qualify in the top 100 to make the main race. Howling across the finish line, he qualified 1st setting a new course record, but only 0.079 ahead of 2nd: the race was on! A few race heats later and numerous minutes of anxiously waiting in the hot seat, and Flare Clothing’s Ben Moore was crowned the winner, smashing second place by a whopping 2 seconds.

“I couldn’t be happier to take the win at the Red Bull Dark Knight race, months of hard graft in the gym and on the bike have finally paid off. I’m equally as proud to be representing Flare Clothing co on the International scene. Their support and belief in me has been invaluable, and they keep me looking fresh on the bike,’’ commented Ben.

Ben Skinner-Watts, Flare’s Operations Director had this to say, ‘’We are so stoked for Ben taking the win at such an awesome and high profile event. Supporting riders like Ben is one of our main motivations at Flare. Being a little piece of a big puzzle in helping them achieve their dreams is as important as helping all of our racers look cool and comfortable on the bike.’’

This is a massive achievement for Ben and Flare but there’s no real time for rest. Ben has a few more weeks training ahead of him before heading out to France to take on the infamous Mega Avalanche where we’re sure he’ll be riding high on the confidence taken from his recent win.
