With the Games in full swing, everyone’s getting into the Olympic spirit. Even if there isn’t an event for their specific sport. Japan’s trials phenom Tomomi Nishikubo wanted in on the action and, instead of cross country or track, he’s trying track and field.

The Canyon rider’s creative twist on the classic Olympic event is, as you’d expect, wildly entertaining. Up against a field of competitors on foot, the Japanese trials rider finds fun ways to keep it competitive.
