After missing out last year’s edition I returned to Kobe, Japan for the annual. The best riders from all over the globe came together to battle for the $40.000,-. After qualifying for the final battle tournament I won my first battle against up and coming and Kobe local rider; Takumi Isogai. Then I had to face the reigning world champion; Viki Gomez again after batteling him earlier this year at the USWA. This time I had to take a loss against him, but I’m still stoked on making it so far in the tournament and I’m happy to close this years contest season with this result.
