Technology blows me away, this morning I woke up to a livefeed of the KOG Round 2 in Kobe, with the crazy time difference I only managed to follow the contest from the semi finals, Moto Sasaki went out to the consistent flapjack links of Russia, whilst Ucchie edged out Takhiro Ikeda for a place in the final. During the run off for third, Moto went off and looked a lot more relaxed than in the run off with Russia. During the final seemed to be a lot of love and respect between finalists Ucchie and Russia, the battle was a little bit like front wheel vs back wheel, both riders had a few touches, especially in the second runs where they were going for harder stuff! Congrats to Ucchie!!! First KOG win in a few years?!
