Rim Nakamura started riding at a very young age as his father was also a BMX lifer and showed him the ropes. The last few years Rim has skyrocketed to the top (sometimes literally) and is the main candidate to represent Japan at the 2020 Olympic Games if you ask me. Rim recently was in Eindhoven, Netherlands to ride the 040BMXPARK (Area51). We met up, took some photos and fired over some questions. Let's see what makes the BMX-er from Kyoto tick.

What does it feel like to jump out of a helicopter with your bike? Kriss Kyle has done it and explains how it feels. He also got to ride some giant slides of a waterpark in Dubai. Interview number two on the project. Worth a read.
What did you think Dubai would be like before you went? Kriss Kyle: Before I went to Dubai, I didn’t really know what to expect because you see it on tv and it looks like this incredible place. Everything looks so high-end. I have thought about riding there in the past but I didn’t know it would be possible. I saw the skating video We Are Blood so I knew there would be amazing spots, but they had security helping them access all the spots.
A few years ago we did an interview with Risto Kalmre who, together with his brother Mario, is the main man behind Simpe Session. Here's a re-post on what it takes to put on an event like this.
First of all congrats on continuing putting on killer events together in Tallinn and in Helsinki. Through this interview we’d like to show how much goes into these events. When did you actively start preparing for Simple Session 2012?
