Half Japanese, half British and following a childhood being raised in both Japan and Australia, Kai Sakakibara’s great international success in the world of BMX racing is hardly a surprise. The eldest of the Sakakibara duo, Kai was the first to get into BMX as a sport. Right from the get-go, Kai has prided himself on giving BMX his absolute all, which has resulted in Kai finding himself within the top 10 of World Rankings.
Intense and focused by nature, Kai is always the first to show up and the last to leave, making sure to stick around to ask if there’s anything more he can do to improve himself. His head firmly screwed on, Kai hasn’t lost sight of the fact that he has the privilege of pursuing his passion all the while having his sister, Saya, by his side every step of the way, he not only acts a brother but as mentor as well. With his sights set on the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and a medal at the 2019 World Cup, Kai Sakakibara is an exciting bet for the upcoming BMX seasons with his stock price set to soar!
