Young and Human 2.0 Partner to Build a Better Ben

Collingwood, ON CANADA – November 13, 2015 - Scottish-born Pro motorcycle road racer Ben Young from Collingwood, ON is proud to announce a partnership Human 2.0, a movement-based wellness and fitness facility located in Ottawa. Through their athlete’s program, Young looks to ensure he’s in peak physical condition heading into the 2016 racing season and beyond.


Human 2.0 – a sports medicine, rehabilitation, performance and movement centre – will soon be launching basic mobility programs for athletes and for motorcycle racers. Visit www.humantwopointzero.com for additional information on all of their programs.

President Chris Raynor, MD is an orthopaedic surgeon, sports medicine specialist with a passion for motorsports. He’s a member of the Ontario Race Physicians and was an orthopaedic consultant to Clinica Mobile during Moto GP events.

Raynor will evaluate Young’s current fitness levels during an upcoming visit to Human 2.0’s fitness facility. Test results will assist in determining the most effective sports performance strategy focused around the goals of speed, general strength, agility, flexibility, balance, power, reaction time, diet, with ongoing mobility training for injury prevention.

“The biggest limiting factor for athletes is injury. At Human 2.0, it is our goal to act preventatively, and to start by addressing the most vulnerable areas of the human body. After all, you are only as strong as your weakest link. From there, we continue to build the foundation of general body awareness and complex movement skill using mindful, detailed, and form-focused techniques. Upon this, any and all other more specific needs can grow. On behalf of all the staff here at Human 2.0, we look forward to helping Ben prepare for his upcoming season. With solid physical, nutritional, and mental ground work, the sky is the limit when it comes to his success.” said President Chris Raynor, MD

A rider with tremendous international experience, including the Scottish Nationals, U.S. Red Bull Rookies Cup try-outs, British Superbike, Grand Prix wildcard, Young’s racing career has been extensive for any rider of his age. In 2014, he split his time between racing British Superstock in the UK and AMA Daytona SportBike (now MotoAmerica Supersport) in America, scoring solid results in both.

Young spent this past season racing in the U.S. with the powerful RoadRace Factory team in the MotoAmerica Supersport championship where he earned his first MotoAmerica podium at Road America along with several top 5 finishes. In 2015, he also achieved two podium finishes at home in Canada during a one-off race weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Young, who prides himself at being able to excel under pressure as well as being adaptable to new challenges, looks forward to the next chapter of being a better Ben: “I’m excited to advance my fitness levels with Human 2.0’s sports performance programs. I want to have no excuses and be able to give one hundred percent when I’m training and racing.”

Young will continue his momentum from this past season through to a new opportunity in 2016 which he hopes to be able to announce in the coming months.

As a proud "Laps for Muscular Dystrophy" (Laps4MD) rider Young has pledged to donate $1 for every lap he leads to Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

Young is also thankful for the support of his personal sponsors; Scot-Build Developments Inc., Tim Hortons (Sudbury), AXO America and Bell Helmets.
