  1. Funny Rujyi story. We were riding in a friend Wayne’s dark and smokey parking garage right on the outskirts of Westwood, and Chris Day and Pete A. were there. Rujyi was on fire, as per usual, and doing some combo that lasted for about 15 minutes that had him looking like he was floating 3 inches above the ground the whole time. Pete is just sitting and watching, then turns to us and says, “Rujyi is like a ballerina on a bike……but a bad ass Oakland Raiders ballerina!” With the exception of the 30 seconds after he uttered that, I had never before or since had such a burning desire to be compared to a ballerina (no offense to dancers, they are super athletes!).

  2. Watching the other runs from this contest gives you an idea of just how badass he was. The hardest tricks with so much flow and style. Ridiculous.
