Scoop is actually looking into expanding their sponsor activities so if you think you've got what it takes, send your video links to:
Have you entered a Red Bull Circle of Balance competition before? Lowcash: Yes I have. I have been to both COB's in Oberhausen, Germany before.
Do you think it's right that the event is taking place in Japan this time? Lowcash: I think so. The COB is a big thing and I think every Flatlander has heard something about it. Also in Japan. It must be a great feeling for all Japanese riders that such a big event is coming to their country.
It couldn't be stopped. Kase Filipowicz is now featured in a DK advertisement. After a week long sponsor campaign on FATBMX, Kase chose to represent DK Bicycles and celebrated with an abubaca on the hood of this SUV.
As DK's Catfish stated: "We have been supporting Kase for a while now and it's time to move him up to the A program. Where do you find talent like this?
On the way back from the park Kase wasn't tired yet and when he found a bucket and a piece of wood, he created a ghetto park for himself. Kase knows what's going on.
On the way home from the park As I told you before, if you look around, you will find something to ride. Just use your imagination and be creative. In the photo I took a piece of plywood, a brick and created a jump.
"Thanks for checking back in. It's been harder getting a photo for the daily update but I've just stayed up a little later and rode a little hard. This time I took it to the park. It was late at night but that's how the pros do it too I heard. " said Kase. He did come through with another great shot to impress the potential sponsors.
Let the bikes in
Yeah that's me doing a smith on the sub. I broke into the park late at night because the damn skaters don't allow bikes in. If you look close, I'm wearing sandals. Reef, where ya at?! Naah, I don't like to ride in sandals much but I was sick of giving the other brands free love.
Those of you who think I need to wear more protection gear should
"Dude, I saw this rail and thought, what the hell, I just manual the shit out of it....."said Kase as he was working on a new photo for the daily FATBMX Kase update. The guy is serious.
Speed is all you need.
I'm about to get rid of those stupid training wheels but for the moment I need them to get full speed without falling over. I told you, I've only been riding for a couple of months so give me a break.
I pulled this rail manual on my third attempt. The first two times I grinded the rail on my training wheels which could actually be a trick too but once I take off these things I can't do that trick at the big comps anyway.
Hi, my name is Kase and I've been riding for a few months now. I'm pretty damn good on a bike. Do you want to see my trick of the day? I'm sure you do. Well, here we go:
I heard about this Red Bull Circle Of Balance contest in Tokyo so I started working on some flatland moves. Just in case they need me there, I can load up my bike, grab some snacks and take that plane. The snow outside doesn't really help with the rolling tricks I've been thinking of so I've got to stick with tech tricks like this brakeless vertical boomerang. I've got a couple of days left to work on my flatland riding but I can tell you that I'm ready for any battle. Bring it on Jumelin!
You see, I'm wearing etnies shoes in this picture. I haven't signed any shoe deal yet but I'm open for offers.
