For the first time ever, X Games went down in Japan! This world-class event took place on April 22-24th in Chiba, Japan, and Mongoose had Pat Casey and Kevin Peraza representing the brand in BMX Park. Due to some delays getting the course built the athletes only had an hour to practice before prelims. Pat had some troubles getting his runs exactly like he wanted, just missing out making finals, but still made fans happy with is impressive freecoaster skills and classic Pat Casey style!
The next day Kevin was sitting in the sixth place qualifying spot for the finals! This gave him a little more practice time, which really paid off for Kevin. His unique use of course mixed with some big tricks and super technical moves landed Kevin on the podium! Everyone was pumped to see X Games in Japan and we can’t wait for the next one!
