It's always a pleasure to hold a fresh copy of rare magazine in your hands. Luckily Chief Editor Yasu provided us with a copy of Encounter issue #5. Thank you! On the first couple of pages you'll find a Circle of Balance photo special (photos by Hajime Nohara). An interview with Kerry Gatt in Japanese and English language is in the middle of the mag followed by a question&answer column with former KOG champions. Furthermore there is an interview with rider and artist Nao Yoshida about his art exhibition in NYC, Viki has a short 1 page column and to round things up there are some more roadtrip stories + many good photos. If you have a chance to get a copy of Encounter then use it! It's a collector's item for every flatlander!
