I know it's early to say anything, but It's been a long. long time since Japanese rider is on the top of some game. Last one who was in the picture, if I remember correctly was Yoshitaka Atsuta in the early 2000s
Of course I forgot about this Japanese guy who landed on EL Hombre, at MXDN ( don't remember his name, but he did pretty well at nationals)

His style on the bike is unmatched. He uses so little energy and rides as smooth as a baby's behind. Can wait to see him dip into the pro ranks.

I’m a fan.

I don't care if the dude is white, black, asian, indian, japanese, or transvestite... He's smooth and fast as hell. That was some great racing to watch.

You’re an idiot. Probably one of the dudes saying the Stewart’s never experienced racism in the motocross community. Here’s your case in point to you and anyone who feels that way.


This kid is so centered and balanced on the bike. Smooth as humanly possible.

|

10/17/2018 4:52 PM

I knew his name, but I'd never seen him ride before last weekend. The kid made a fan outta me. I was checking out YouTube last night, and saw a video of him on his supermini from the 2015 Mini Major. He definitely knows the fast way around a track.

He also got my Japanese girlfriend interested in watching Supercross, which is a win for me.

Racer from Japan with last name Fukudome.

Thats the best.

I met Notsuka at a practice track on Sunday (he lives locally). Him and Koga Taiki are the fastest in the lites class right now. The champ of this season will be heading over to the GP’s I believe. Notsuka was there a couple of seasons ago, but crashed out and had to call it a season.

Oh well why didn’t you say so! I’m sure Jo and his dad don’t mind that you stereotype a teenage kid on the internet cuz, well, you worked for a Japanese company after all! You cultured son of a gun. Geesh let me move out of the way! I’m sure your coworkers thought it was really funny when you pointed out the way they talked....until you walked out of the room

haha i haven't seen that one that is too funny.

i had the same experience when i saw a video on instagram posted by a guy i think is in his circle. Anyways by his voice he sounds japanese aswell and he was saying Jo Shimoda in like the Bruce Buffer UFC voice ... Jooooo SHimmooddaaaaaaa! -- as he's rippin laps at the track lol

I like his style looks like he's on good control and in shape. Once he gets the sprint speed down hell be a very good contender in the 250 class for sure!

So do you make fun of the way blacks talk too in the same manner ? Hispanics, Europeans ?

You sound like the guy that uses the N word constantly, but says he's not a racist because he "knows black people".

Ever heard Jo talk ? He probably speaks better English than you do.
