  1. These three are just RULING the contest scene ……would of been interesting if the Katagiri brothers would of got a shot to medal, in Chiba . Where’d ya see the live stream battles , E ? I’d be happy to watch em , also . I’m still stoked on Ryo’s winning run @ Hiroshima , F.I.S.E. , 2019 !

    • Hey Rodney!
      The battles were live on Instagram, lucky enough to catch them this morning. I wish they would put these on YouTube to watch over and over! The level was insane!!!

      • Damn it , haha…..had I have known that…. I would of been on Insta a lil earlier today ! I can just imagine the levels during the battles , E …..fingers crossed that they upload even just a lil bit of it on You Tube ….these three cats in contests is as epic as when Chase , Chad and Puente would all show up @ contests back in 93-94 ! Kio , the Katagiri bros are just going ham and cheese , demolishing Flatland in 2022 ! Haha……

  2. All 3 drop face melters on the regular. The level is incomprehensible for a non rider to fully grasp. They’re all just getting started too, what are we going to see in the next 10 years? Almost causes a thinky pain.

      • Damn were you telling the PRECISE truth , Effraim ! I’ve watched Yu and Kio’s combos in the Chimera edit that you shared on Insta …….and DAAAAMMNN , dude ! The riding level was MENTAL . These riders are literally about honor , the progression and difficulty within the sport ! Like you stated…..ABSOLUTELY AMAZING and as CORE as one could ask for in a contest …..EVERY class . Yu and Kio , their combos ……..FULL ON ham and cheese . So ,so ,so crazy !

    • Spot on , Fenton ! These three like Mirra , r.i.p. , Nyquist and Allan Cooke back in mid 2000 ! The three untouchables in Flatland , just raising the difficulty bar relentlessly , haha…Kio , Yu…..their combos in that Chimera High Class edit that Effraim , JPRO left links on ……full on WILD , TIMES 7 . You’ve ALSO done , doing YOUR part also , elevating , pushing DIFFICULTY , Brandon . E-Clipse and multiple video sections are PROOF , my man ! At a time when brakeless Flatland was cruising along……E-Clipse dropped and your technical combos kicked Flatland straight up the arse , haha…..FACT !

  3. The last line in the edit from Yu is on another level. Most impressive thing I’ve seen pulled in a contest ever!
