    Fajardo crushed it on day 1... First by a sizeable margin, Raga second, Fuji third. Bou off the box in 4th. Kuroyama honorable mention in 9th.

    Nice to see Fugi make the podium.

    Wow! Amazing to see Fajardo so on it! Even injured, Fuji's home pitch advantage pulls him on the box... nice!

    I found some footage of Bou, and it looks like he got dinged for a stop in at least one section, which basically dropped him behind Fuji. Although he did flat out fail a few others.

    Fajardo seemed pretty stoked at the end.

    He should be stoked.... 9 years trying to get that feeling back, and he did! Not many riders can do that!

    Yeah, good for him. Considering how crap he looked indoors, I admit I'm a little surprised.

    Watching the scores live on the APP. Now if there was a better live feed besides just watching the scores. Maddie Hoover just dropped a 5. They are still starting riders.

    How cool is that, that she gets to ride in Japan? If she's getting assistance from any of the USA trials community they deserve our support! Are there any other USA riders there?

    She is still in first place. And the only American I see.

    I want to see what makes section 15 so difficult to the top riders. I see a bunch of 5s dropped there. Bou just dropped one as I am typing this. This live feed is a blessing and a curse.

    Looking the location up, we have an office about an hour from there.

    Busto just took a 5 and that complete the first loop for the top riders. Raga is 3 points ahead of Bou with Busto 1 point below that. EVERYONE took a 5 in section 15.

    Check back in the morning and see how this ends...

    Busto wins. Casales was the only one who ever made it through section 15 (with a three, second loop).

    I can't recall the last time Bou went winless on a weekend. GasGas must be ecstatic.

    Hoover second in T2 women.

    Jim Ellis in the CVOTC was selling shirts to raise money for the TDN girls I will see him in a few weeks and see if he is doing anything for the world rounds

    Or anything from section 15, please post it. I would like to see what finally makes something nearly impossible.
