Profile:

Koji is one of those rare athletes who competes in multiple disciplines of BMX: street, vert and dirt. On street, he is one of the few riders to have ever landed a double back flip. On vert, he is one of the youngest pro competitors and some say he is the future of BMX vert riding. He is known for the amazing height and intensity at which he will ride. He seems to know no fear when on his bike.
