  1. Hotoke is probably one of the most incredible riders I’ve ever seen. I don’t think he rides as much now, but the runs he was throwing down in like 2006-2007 were probably on a Justin Miller level of difficulty. I remember a contest run of his against Ucchie where he just completely wiped the floor with him.
