Paying homage to Darren Pelio, Japan's Moto Sasaki made his first Circle of Balance appearance and came as close as possible to grinding his handlebars on the ground during this Karl Kruzer link. A former NORA Cup winner, 27-year-old Sasaki started riding at a later age than most (18) but quickly shot to the top of the Japanese flatland scene.
