Competing on the world stage of BMX is no easy feat, and while there are many posts on social media which highlight the many highs of the sport, there aren’t many that point out the lowest of lows.

The Road to Tokyo Series with Kai Sakakibara is an opportunity for those seeking the top stage to understand the commitment and challenges that come with the dream.

Kai is one of Australia’s Tokyo Olympic hopefuls and with less than a year left in the qualification period, skills will be tested mentally and physically.
