Race Report by Kaz Shimizu
Asian Junior Championships since the first mountain bike. KAZUKI SHIMIZU (JPN) AKI Factory Team DH 1st.
Rain leading up to the race during the week made for a half-dry and partially muddy conditions. Warm sunny day during practices turned several sections into peanut butter…..but, there was a good amount of traction and I felt satisfied with the tires I used. The course varied for example, one part was gently sloping and another climbing up hill. I was able to keep both wheels on the ground and blaze hard.
The KONA 10′ STINKY has an instinctive ability with the “Hammerschmidt” it has covers all aspects of riding from DH to Free ride it handles very well. I would like to thank all of my sponsors. Last but not least, I would like to thank my Team manager MASA. MASA has been helping me with everything. Thanks again for all your support.
