so i’ve got a new mountain bike built up now. a couple of weeks ago, me and the local mountainbike guys from fishcutletracing got up at 4am to head to the annual magic mushroom cup in hyogo, near osaka. but don’t worry mum no hallucinatory substances were in involved, the race was held at a mushroom farm.

…ride’n hi mash up!!! again, i must reiterate – nothing dodgy, this is japan.

my new bike had about a foot or so too much suspension travel for the course. it was 35sec long with two bumps and some guy who rode for the japanese unicycle factory team won.

the fishcutlet bros – daisuke, jimichi, yosuke & shinsuke. i didn’t teach them the rude gestures, it means ‘friendly greeting’ in japanese.

masami won sport class after finding out about the line where you can wallride to this turn from the 2nd bump back (it’s supposed to be a jump). i got booted out of sport into expert class cos i showed him the line, muhahahhaaa…

in between snow showers the weather would clear and reveal where we were. nice.

incidentally, the mushrooms are grown in piles of logs.
