Intro/Interview and edit: Takuji Kasahara.


Luckily there are a lot of good riders around me. Some of them are called pros, some are not.
Actually there is not big difference between them. It is just a luck of sponsors or someone isn't interested in contest very much. Here is my friend Naoki Watanabe who stays in the underground and still ride hardcore.
I'm happy to introduce Naoki to you. This guy is about style!
Hope you enjoy this small edit of him we filmed last weekend!
