Congrats to whitey getting invited, I'm guessing they wanted someone from each country where possible?! Still surprising no Moto or Hotoke to me, these guys are smashing it!!!

Hotoke has some crazy new shit... I really think he's been blackballed in Japan because he ditched Ares...

Certainly seems that way Burd, I guess the majority of this list is from guys that competed at the world circuit this year... But still Hotoke and Moto are currently the two I see pushing flatland in japan right now, its crazy!! Seems to be the way flatland is right now. How about a contest where you just invite the banging riders, that would be the craziness right there!!!
