Seasonaires - Ep5 - Jinya Nishiwaki
Hardtail rider Jinya Nishiwaki wraps up the fifth and final episode of Tom Grundy's epic Seasonaires web series.
If you cut Jinya Nishiwaki in half he would bleed chain lube. This guy is devoted and passionate.
He has moved all the way from Japan to be in Whistler riding his bike everyday. He rides up, down and around all trails, which demonstrates his commitment, all round riding skills and passion.
Furthermore, he does it all on one bike. Simplicity, style and skill. That’s Jin.
In this episode we see Jin just shred downhills, in the Bike Park and out of the Bike Park. We also get to hear his perspective on what makes Whistler such a special place for bikers and why so many people transit from other worlds to this little piece of mountain bliss every summer.
Thank you for watching Seasonaires and we hope you got some inspiration to drop in somewhere with your bike and the trail as your guiding light. If you want to find out more about Seasonaires then track down a copy of Dirt Magazine issue 105.
Seasonaires is a five part series that will be aired weekly starting the first week in November and coincides with an eight page feature of the same title in issue 105 of DIRT MAGAZINE
