BMX pro Nigel Sylvester has positioned himself as his sport’s de facto video superstar, producing two mind-bending POV video edits titled “Go!” parts 1 and 2 over the past year that featured the 29-year-old pulling off otherworldly stunts in the crowded streets of Los Angeles and his hometown of New York City.
The frenetic editing style of those videos and their outlandish settings helped both videos accrue well over 1 million views on YouTube, and on Wednesday, Sylvester released the latest edition of the “Go!” series in which he showcases his BMX mastery in Tokyo:
The six-minute video shows Sylvester riding his bike through fish markets and narrow alleyways and trying his hand at everything from go-kart racing to sumo wrestling (which he’s just slightly less adept at then riding his bike).
It’s a wild, fast-paced tour of the unique, colorful city and an incredibly compelling piece of video evidence that a plane ticket to Tokyo is something that should be on everyone’s holiday wish list.
And his video tour of Tokyo has already made a notable impression on the internet: In the 24 hours since he uploaded it, it has already been viewed 50,000 times and helped him land an invite to the set of ESPN’s SportsCenter.
