What a day! Congratulations to Moto Sasaki throwing down a flawless run under so much contest pressure. Moto was followed on the podium by Misato Ito who also had a no touch run and Kio Hayakawa in third.
Japan domination here at the UCI World Championships in Abu Dhabi. That’s got to go down as one of the best finals ever!!
Catching up on a ton of updates, just came across this dope footage from the Japan Cup last month featuring the likes of Nora Cup winner Kio Hayakawa, Misato Ito, Hiroya Morizaki and many more. When you’ve got some spare time, check this one out!
It’s Day 2 of the Bike Days contest, and already yesterday I felt like I have been in Switzerland for a week and it’s only been since late Thursday night. Relaxed lifestyle, old architecture, very clean almost every where you look, and amazing Swiss typography that brings back memories from my university days.
Saturday is all about qualifying, I headed down to the contest to post the Day 1 repo before we got started judging the contest at 3. When I arrived Dominik Nekolny was the only rider on the floor, and as usually completely going off, it’s really hard to try and update the site whilst wanting to watch Dom ride and go through his practice routine all on board the Deep Blitz frame, Frank Lucas was stoked.
Great edit right here documenting Naoto Tamaru’s last session in Abu Dhabi where he has been performing shows with Misato Ito for the last two years, and also the arrival of Gonzalo Bellanti and Alvaro Fernandez de Aguirre who arrive to perform shows. Great mix of styles in this one, hit play!
