Whilst out in Cali earlier this year I was lucky enough to tee up a morning session with Taka Higashino to shoot some photo & video content for Fist Handwear.
We were blessed with prime FMX conditions, not a breath of wind insight and the sun was out in force for the morning session at Ronnie Faisst’s compound in Murrieta. Taka is a mad man and it was really cool to see how he rides a session, each rider is different in the way they tackle their daily sessions. It’s almost an art in how each rider achieves trick perfection.
I shot this video with Tai for Monster Energy late last year after he claimed his 2nd Speedway GP World Title. A young Aussie living in the UK since he was around 15years old, chasing his dream. Was a really cool opportunity to follow Tai around over the course of the weekend and get to know himself and the Speedway sport a lot more.
