The level was insane as the World's best BMX riders battled to go through to tomorrow's final. We had 24 riders competing who came from all over the world but by far the biggest cheer from the crowd was for local rider Rim Nakamura who qualified in 7th place.

BMX Legend Ryan Nyquist held on to the top spot for most of the competition. He produced an unbelievable run packing in trick after trick including a big 540, a stylish 720, a backflip double barspin over the box jump and a double barspin over the spine. He scored 91.87 pts which in the end was enough for 2nd place.
 
He was beaten to the top spot by Logan Martin. The rider from Australia is a former FISE and UCI BMX champion. His riding is so precise and he landed everything cleanly including an insane quadruple tailwhip and a backflip 1 foot 1 hander. He scored 93.50 points to take the top spot.
 
In 3rd place was yesterday's top place qualifier Kevin Peraza who was a delight to watch.He flowed around the course with so much energy. He landed a 360 tabletop out of a tailwhip, a fakie ally-oop tailwhip and a cool nose press wrap around. The Pedal grind across the box he pulled was magical normally we just don't see people do that, so original.
 
The big shock of the competition was that FISE World Series 2018 champion Marin Rantes did not place high enough to go into tomorrow's final.

FISE Hiroshima: Names to Look Out For
 
Hiroshima will soon be teeming with action sport heroes competing at the first stop of the 2019 FISE World Series. 
 
Here are 9 athletes you need to check out – they’ve been on fire in the run-up to this highly anticipated event!
 
BMX Freestyle Park
24-year-old Arizonian Kevin Peraza lights up any competition with his constant smile and even brighter talent. He has family history in BMX, and brings unmatched inspiration and devotion to the sport: we expect to see some progressive tricks from him this weekend.
 
BMX Freestyle Park Women
25-year-old Nevada native Perris Benegas is coming off a dominating year. Keep an eye on the winning bar spins, flairs, whips and 360s of this 2018 UCI Women’s Elite BMX Freestyle champion. 
 
Skateboard Street
Fan favourite Manny Santiago is sure to exude high energy, endless positivity and undeniable talent. The legendary Puerto Rican skateboarder started 2019 victorious at FISE Battle of Champions in Saudi Arabia. Will he earn more gold in Hiroshima?
 
 
 
BMX Flatland 
Hometown hero Yohei Uchino is a Flatland prodigy. Over a decade ago, the 36-year-old became the first Japanese Flatland rider to take world championship glory. He has continued to command the scene ever since.  
 
BMX Flatland Women 
Misaki Katagiri, another Japanese legend, reigned supreme during the 2018 FISE World Series – and she’s back for more! Topping the BMX Flatland Women’s standings with 40,000 points last year, a big display from the 26-year-old is anticipated.
 
Roller Freestyle Park
The stylish street skating of Yuto Goto – known as the Japanese blading wave – will be gracing FISE Hiroshima. Watch for the amazing lines created by his special blend of Japanese perfection and technical, smooth blading.
 
 
Roller Freestyle Park Women  
FISE Hiroshima was Manon Derrien’s favourite stop on the 2018 FISE World Series and the French roller star returns as holder of the Roller Freestyle Park World Cup crown. As the reigning champion, all eyes will be on Manon as she weaves some jaw-dropping lines. 
 
Parkour 
Having seen Valentin Dubois at FISE Battle of Champions, we’re hoping for big things from the French freerunner as he looks to make his way up the podium in the World Series. 
 
Bouldering 
Josh Levin comes into FISE Hiroshima as one of the USA’s most decorated Climbing competitors. As bouldering continues its growth towards an internationally recognised sport, the 21-year-old is at the forefront of the movement. We can’t wait to see what he has to offer!

Since the early 1970s, b-boying/b-girling, or breaking has been gaining popularity right around the world. First called ‘breakdancing’ by the ’80s media, the number of competitions in this athletic dance style has been growing year on year. 
 
Returning to FISE Hiroshima next week, here’s a bit more info on this must-see event.
 
Competitive Breaking
 
Each competition, between two individuals or teams, has a fixed number of rounds. Athletes (breakers) perform a combination of dance moves across three principal breaking elements.
 
Top Rock: performed standing up; often used to start a routine before floor work.
Down Rock: a variety of floor moves that include leg and footwork, power moves, spins, drops, flips, and transitions – using hands/backs/stomachs.
Freezes: a solid shape is held with no movement at all, requiring balance and strength; provide contrast to constant motion of the previous elements.
 
Scoring
 
An uneven panel of at least three judges scores each breaker on 3 criteria: Body, Soul, and Mind.
 
Body: physical quality, composed of technique and variety.
Soul: interpretive quality, composed of performativity and musicality.
Mind: artistic quality, composed of creativity and personality.
 
 
Why Getting Down is Up-and-Coming
 
After its 2018 debut at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, breaking is moving towards recognition as an Olympic sport. The International Olympic Committee believes it fits with their goal of making the Olympics ‘gender-balanced, more youth-focused and more urban’.  Paris’ organisers have proposed that breaking is added to the 2024 Games – a massive boost for the sport.
 
With legends like Lil Zoo set to take the stage at FISE Hiroshima on the 19 April, breaking competition promises an electric atmosphere and mind-boggling performances. Follow all the head-spinning action on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages!
