TEDxTokyo 2016 Performer Hiroyuki Ogawa
Stunt Rider Hiroyuki “Oga” Ogawa, a world-leading stunt rider, is already tremendously popular in the U.S. and Europe. He rides a big bike that weighs 200 kilos and handles it as if it were part of his own body – and his performance totally ignites the audience. He has participated in the Stunt Riding World Championship held in the United States (the motherland of the stunt bike) and made it to the winning podium many times. In 2014, he was the top Japanese competitor at an international competition held overseas. Indeed, he is the no. 1 stunt rider in Japan. Hiroyuki has extended his thrilling activities to the global level. He devotes himself to daily practice to master the art of his performance. He continues challenging himself as one of the few athletes capable of this death-defying sport.
