Ben Mikic FoundationOn April 27th 2007, Ben Mikic, a talented 15 year old racing cyclist from Mittagong, NSW, was tragically killed in a collision with a car during a training ride three days after he had been selected to join the elite young rider’s team at the Illawarra Academy of Sport. Ben had proved himself as a gifted athlete in Road and Mountain Bike Racing.

Ben's life goal, like many teenage cyclists was to ride in The Tour de France. Unfortunately, his gifted athletic ability was not enough to keep him safe on the road.
