The Red Bull Circle of balance was one of the best trips of my life! One of the things I was most psyched on, was finally meeting Takuji. You may recall Takiji has helped a lot with japanese content on the site. Sadly with time constraints we didn’t get to ride together. But we did get to hang out for a lil’ bit at the hotel before the contest went down. Check out his ride, so dialled!

Anything specific to you that you must have on your own ride: -

Sponsors: Sidual, Cyclus, Hommage BMX shop, Buoyancy, I’d like to thank to Kerry Gatt for the Ryal stem and Hori iron works for the barends. Shout out to Ilyas from Devise clothing and Alvin Lee from CRAP.

Advice to beginners on bike set ups? Sometimes I see riders care too much about the set up and parts especially when they are at the beginner level they wouldn’t know how the parts work for the tricks. If you’re stuck on a trick and you feel it’s impossible with your current set up, for sure it’s impossible. I think it’s just a mental thing. Sometimes changing setups helps me to break though a mental block. But I believe if we put our mind to it we can do anything as far as we’re on BMX . So be patient and ride whatever makes you happy.

Thanks Takuji! Nice ride! Check Takuji’s unique riding style in these videos below:
