Do you believe that Japan is the country where flatland is most popular?
Travis Collier: It's pretty close. The Japanese riders are very dedicated.
Do you have an idea why?
Travis Collier: In Japanese culture they pay close attention to detail. Everything is created with care and a close eye. That is flatland.
How crazy do you think the crowd will go when the battles start?
Travis Collier: I wanna see panties fly!
Does anyone in this rider group have a chance to win or do you have a favorite for the victory?
Travis Collier: Everyone is amazing.
How stoked are you to be chosen to ride at the COB?
Travis Collier: I'm lightheaded.
