"I've always just competed because it's fun to be in this environment," said 19-year-old Ben Ferguson, who showed up to his first X Games Aspen SuperPipe event on Thursday and qualified in one of the top spots for Sunday's finals. "I've competed since I was little. I did my first contest at 8, and have been working my way up, and it looks like I'm here now."
