Sakura Sugio Interview

I had the pleasure of meeting Sakura at FISE Montpellier in May, and the first time I saw her ride, my eyes popped. For someone so petite, she comes with a bubbly personality and a heavy trick list. She’s someone I’ll be keeping an eye on and at the age of 16, her future in BMX is bright. Let’s get to know here more!
