A few months back I was invited by Gatorade to fly out to Japan to do some stuff with Nigel Sylvester for Defgrip. I was super excited and couldn’t wait to take my first trip to Japan! Along with me and a few other media people was Ryan Fudger. He was working on a full article for Ride that will be out next month. Fudger and I have known each other for a long time, but some how have never ended up on a trip together. We had a blast and ended up staying in Japan a few extra days to ride and explore a bit more. When we got back, I hit up Fudger for a quick top 5 from the trip, so keep reading to see what Fudger thought of Japan!
