It’s been a good day at the Fise World contest here in Hiroshima, Japan. Congratulations to Moto Sasaki who took the top spot going into tomorrows semi finals, followed by Jean William Prevost and Matthias Dandois. Top 16 make the Semis, 38 riders competed today with a really high level of riding going down. Semis tomorrow, and finals Sunday. Stay tuned for livestream updates.
Today marked probably the longest trip I have ever been on. After a solid 25 hours door to door travelling time from FM HQ to the Fise World contest in Hiroshima, Japan. London Heathrow to Frankfurt onto to Tokyo then finally Hiroshima, couple in all the changes, going through customs etc, etc. It has been a long day, I met up with Michael Steingraber at Frankfurt who is judging with me in Japan.
The great news is our host hotel is right next to the contest, absolutely banging! I took a quick look over at the site and bumped into Alberto Moya, Varo Hernandez, Dustyn Alt, Moto Sasaki, Taka, and many more. Around 30 riders on the floor getting warmed up, the spot was busy.
After a quick look around it was time for dinner and a look around Hiroshima, we have got a busy weekend ahead, I will try my best to get some updates for you throughout the weekend.(if not definitely after the event). The rider list is stacked, around 40 riders with a quick glance, so it’s going to be a good one!
I am pretty tired from the trip so I will keep this one short and sweet.
Congratulations to Alex Jumelin who just won the Chimera Games replacement contest in Tokyo, Japan followed on the podium by Viki Gomez and Fumiya Kanna and Jean William Prevost tied for third. Alex won all three of his battles to take the spot with a final battle against Viki Gomez. The event almost didn’t happen because of a big storm arriving in Japan but Trinity Skatepark saved the day and a replacement contest went ahead. Big up everyone involved making this happen despite the weather conditions.

Great footage from the recent Flat Games contest in Chiba, Japan featuring so much awesome riding in order from: Ryo Katagiri, Ryosuke Takagi, Nao Yoshida, Yorimitsu Miyata 00:48!!, Naoto Tamaru, Shinichiro Hara, Yasuhiro Uehara, Kazuma Nakajima, look out for the young ripper Takumi Isogai at around the 1:52 and the no handed spinning halfpacker whip halfpacker line at such a young age at 2:17, unreal! Masashi Itani, Keisuke Tanigawa, Naoki Watanabe, and Fumiya Kanna, great edit by Yasushi Kajiwala! Don’t sleep on this, underground japan at its finest, I believe Moto Sasaki organised this event. Thanks to Lee Musselwhite for the heads up on this one!
