Flatland is popular over there isn't it?
Jesse Puente: HI! Yes Yes everybody digs Flatland in Japan, I can't wait to represent.
Why is that you think?
Jesse Puente: The culture is cool with bikes in general and the fashion has no bicycle bias. So with girls that out number boys it makes it very popular with the youth because a kid wants to be cool with the ladies. And there are also many girl riders that are very advanced because they want to be cool too.
Is the crowd going to go nuts?
Jesse Puente: Since there are many countries involved there should be an unbelievable amount of riders so when the battle starts it will be total insanity. In combination with them drinking a lot of Red Bull, people will be bouncing off walls!
Who is going to take the win?
Jesse Puente: I think anybody has a chance if they pull their most difficult tricks.
Anybody you would like to thank?
Jesse Puente: I'm very happy. I've been wanting to get ivited for years and now I have a chance to be chosen..It's all good
