The PhilBike Expo is the country’s first and largest trade and consumer show dedicated to the promotion and development of cycling and related industries. Organized and produced by Phil-Bike Convention, Inc. (PBCI), PhilBike is now on its 3rd year of bringing together different cycling categories under one fun and interactive event. The expo is a 2-day event to be held on November 26 and 27 at SMX Mall of Asia in Pasay. It will allow cycling enthusiasts’ access to the most diverse range of local and international products and demonstrations.
This year, PhilBike has invited few of the best riders of today across the globe.
“The Magician” Kenny Belaey is a 24-year veteran of the sport. Since his debut in 1992, Belaey has brought the sport to the mainstream as a constant innovator and professional. He is the record holder of the most medals won at the World Cup and World Championships. His latest video project, “Balance”, saw him crossing a slackline on the top of the French Alps, a feat that had yet to be accomplished by any other biker before him. ,
The Superkids are Japanese prodigies made up of Yu Shoji (14) and Takumi Isogai (14). This dynamic duo has been making a name in the Flatland scene with their cutting edge and flair for pushing innovation to its limits. Shoji is the first place winner of the 2015 Voodoo Jam and the second runner-up for the 2014 FlatArk Novice. Isogai was the first place winner of the 2014 FlatArk Expert and came in at eighth place for the 2016 FlatDev Pro.
Accompanying the Superkids is their mentor, Viki Gómez, who is returning to PhilBike for the second year in a row. Hailed as one of the best in the world, the 35-year-old Spaniard is known for his constant creation of new tricks that combine flow and rhythm and surpassing the limits of imagination. The Red Bull athlete is a three-time Champion of the Flatland World Circuit Series, as well as a three-time Red Bull Circle of Balance Champion. He is also a two-time winner of the European X-Games.
