Those who were at the 2017 UCI World Cup in Zolder will remember the race where things went nuts on the first jump. With people losing control it sent 6 of them to the ground, one of them was Kai Sakakibara. At that moment you know why you're wearing your protection gear. And you never know when a crash will happen to you. Most often it's somebody else causing the crash. What has Kai learnt from it and what protection gear does the Australian use?

It's windy and it's raining, but the show must go on. You're on that 8 meter high starting hill with 7 nervous girls next to you. You know you need to jump that first jump to make a chance to transfer to the next round. Things can get sketchy sometimes that's why it's good to pad up.
