  1. Wow. I had often wondered what elements were responsible for the vibrant and expansive BMX scene in Japan, This documentary was really insightful in that it not only showed that there is an overall structure and cohesion to the scene through the BMX schools and events happening in Japan but also how the riders really identified with their own personal impact and contribution to the scene. Inspiring to say the very least!

    • Great work behind the scenes from the likes of Kotaro, Hiroshi, York Uno, Yasu, and many others that have paved the way. And now top current pros i.e, Ucchie now give back to the scene, it goes on and on. Amazing documentary from Camillo, would love to see more of these in the future!

  2. I like their ‘BMX’ approach to riding, not just flat but do what you want or learn what you want. That is an ideology that desperately needs accepted in the U.S. flatland scene.
