    RedBull Sidewinders, the first DH race in JAPAN!

    What is the biggest distance you ever skated down a mountain road? Which is the longest racing track you could think of? Racing 9km down with 69 hairpins; sounds insane? Must be a leg burner for sure. Is it even fun racing that far? How many runs even humanly possible in a day?! So many questions might pop up in your head. Well, it actually happened last month in Aomori, Japan! Northern part of the main island there is this scenic road "Iwaki Skyline". Absolute u"road porn" images of epic hairpins has been out there already for years and I've seen them popped up on my FB feeds every once in a while. Even though, difficult access from metropolitan area kept the road as "skate virgin" for many years.

    I could write a simple report with a chronicle about how things went on the day of the event and how fun it was (to make you readers jealous... just kidding!). However this time, besides the event report of Radicals Fiesta, I'll write about the whole experience of organizing local events and sessions I have been doing since 2013 together with my partner in crime Fifer. Also we want to give a little of context of the Japanese scene; believe me, things in Japan are really different. We want to share this experience because we believe that there is bunch of young talent out there who want to make things happens but doesn't know where to start. Hopefully sharing our experience could encourage you readers, because if we have done it, you could do it too!
