I caught up with a jet lagged Viki Gomez when he arrived back home from the long flight home from Brazil, just before he flew out to Japan for the Flatark contest, and asked him to come up with 20 Bullet points about his trip to Brazil for Round 4 of the World Circuit. Viki played a big part in helping this Round of the World Circuit take place in Brazil. So it’s great that Viki translated his words in english and spanish for more riders to read!


Viki placed 2nd at Round 4 of the World Circuit, check out his amazing run right here! Thanks to Lisias Tabarelli for the upload!
