nice vid but isn't that discriminating to riders over 23 ? who may want to enter 23 seems an unusual number .

In japan theres contests/jams almost every weekend, so its no big deal at all, plus the fact theres so many riders to cater for also, i think its a good idea in some ways, gives the younger guys a chnace to make a name for themselves, build up their confidence before the KOG.
