"So we've jumped forward a couple of decades for this episode of the union tapes. But is equally as fascinating as the rest of em. Dan Benson started out riding in Sheffield in the mid 90s aboard an 80s BMX frame. Sheffield always had a strong BMX scene going back to the 80s. In the 90s George French started G SPORT out of Sheffield which is where Dan first experienced a behind the scenes peak into the BMX industry scoring his school work experience at G SPORT.
Not long after that Benson found himself in the centre of one of the bigger BMX movements of the times when a guy called Joe Cox and the members of the hate house started making the infamous UK street video Voices. Not long after Voices is released, he moved to London with his riding buddy Marv-Nick Martin. Scored a spot on the UK Fit team, started contributing to Ride UK more frequently as a photographer, we get to learn the ins n outs of his stint into BMX media the Factory media buyout of Ride UK the birth of the Albion magazine and becoming the editor of the seminal magazine by default, all its trials and grief as well as its collapse!"
