Good things come to those who wait and since Im the slowest blogger in existence Im sure you will enjoy my story about the one time I visited JAPAN for a BMX contest:)

From before BMX Ive had my eye on Japan. At age 8 I decided firmly that I wanted to become a Ninja and had seen the movie "American Ninja" so I knew anything was possible haha. This trip was one of the greatest experiences of my life and I can't thank enough Naoya, Hiroshi, Takuma, Ucchie, Alex, Matthias, and so many others who made this trip so amazing!

I visited Toyko and stayed with Takuma for a day. We had a fun session with Hiroshi next to the bike/skate park, visited Decade shop, walked all around like tourists, then drove 8 hours along with 2 van loads of other bmx dudes. (mostly Japanese:) I reunited with the homies Alex Jumelin and Matthias Dandois and we set up in a super nice apartment in Kobe while we prepared for the Flatark contest several days away. We moved to a ridiculously nice hotel next to the contest venue for the weekend, all of which was paid for by the contest:) As far as the contest goes I made several mistakes and that will never get me into a final in the pro class with the level so high. Im training this winter and will be back for Toronto 100% more prepared for epic battle! Huge shout out to Spaceark bike shop and BMX school. Its so inspiring to see whats going on there!

Enjoy a few photos from my trip to Japan! Peace and Love!
