I met York in Komatsu, Japan, in front of the train station.  He’s been a good friend for about 4 and a half years.  He’s quite the rider.

Bio:

In 1998, York Uno became the first Japanese rider to win an American flatland contest. After that, he created his own company ARESBIKES (aresbikes.com). He has been in the X-games, won gold at Asian X-games, won gold at Planet X-games, semi-finals at Flatground in Holland, participated in a torch passing relay for the Beijing Olympic games, champion at many Japanese competitions, won medals at many international competitions, judges around the world, and is a pioneer in the BMX scene. He is now getting into many forms of culture like DJing, music creation, film, and has great talent in more than just riding bikes.

98年アメリカで行われたプロBMXコンテストで日本人初の優勝を成し遂げ帰国後、オリジナルBMXブランド ARESBIKES (aresbikes.com参照)を立ち上げる。日本人最多のX-GAMES出場、ASIAN X-GAMES 優勝、PLANET X-GAMES (オーストラリア)優勝、FLATGROUND(オランダ)準優勝、全日本シリーズKOGチャンピオンなど世界中のコンテストで入賞を果たし、オリンピック聖火式など世界中のDEMO、ジャッジなど、国内外問わず活躍を魅せるBMXシーンの開拓者。現在、幅広いのアーティストとの交流から自身もDJ、楽曲制作、映像制作をこなしライディング以外の才能にも注目が集まる。
