Ucchie wins KOG Round 2 in Kobe!

Technology blows me away, this morning I woke up to a livefeed of the KOG Round 2 in Kobe, with the crazy time difference I only managed to follow the contest from the semi finals, Moto Sasaki went out to the consistent flapjack links of Russia, whilst Ucchie edged out Takhiro Ikeda for a place in the final. During the run off for third, Moto went off and looked a lot more relaxed than in the run off with Russia. During the final seemed to be a lot of love and respect between finalists Ucchie and Russia, the battle was a little bit like front wheel vs back wheel, both riders had a few touches, especially in the second runs where they were going for harder stuff! Congrats to Ucchie!!! First KOG win in a few years?!

  1. Whats Russia real name E ? lot of Paul Osicka type moves there but with a more modern twist ,awesome battle Ucchie was nuts 🙂

  2. The links that Hotoke pulled in his run against Ucchie were totally bonkers, and the turbined opposite foot pedal hang-five thing at the end… wow. I feel that if he could get all his new super hard stuff dialed he’d be right back on top… always blown away by his riding.
