We’ve seen a fair amount of footage from Yohei “Ucchie” Uchino the past few months and it’s no surprise that he’s now doing it for Freegun over in Japan. Check out the official word below! Hopefully this means we’ll be seeing a welcome edit soon.
“After signing a deal with a major distributor in Japan, Freegun is proud to announce the addition of Japanese flatland phenomenon Yohei “Ucchie” Uchino to the Freegun family. Ucchie has been killing it on the back wheel for years now and has numerous big contest wins and podiums under his belt, along with a NORA Cup for number one flatland rider of the year. Ucchie joins a stacked team of riders in Europe, as well as Freegun’s entire U.S. BMX team including Terry Adams, Daniel Sandoval, Ben Hucke, AJ Anaya, Alex Jumelin, Sebasian Smith, Nina Buitrago, Tyler Gilliard, Kaden Stone, Victor Peraza, and Bryce Tryon.
