The PhilBike Expo, the only international-standard trade and consumer cycling show in the Philippines, closed its three-day weekend with a demo from Kenny Belaey, The Super Kids, and Viki Gómez at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia.
Multiple-World Championship rider, Belaey gave a demonstration of balance atop various obstacles inside the convention. He was followed by Japanese protégés, The Super Kids (14-year-old Yu Shoji and Takumi Isogai), who showed off their incredible flatland skills. Their mentor, Flatland innovator and three-time flatland world champion, Gómez, joined them. This year marks the Spaniard’s second trip to the Philippines where his fans could not get enough of his gravity-defying skills.
Also present during the event was Canadian Geoff Gulevich who began his career at the age of thirteen and rose to prominence as one of the best mountain bikers in the world, as well as Alessandro Colnago, the grandson of cycling-pioneer, Ernesto Colnago and current marketing manager of the Colnago bikes brand. It is the brand of choice of many top cyclists among them Luigi Arienti, who won the gold medal in the 1960 Rome Olympics.
