17-year-old Takeru Otsuka has been catching attention back home -- he was the 2017 Japanese Big Air national champion -- and in the United States, where he's been riding and training in Breckenridge, CO, with a brigade of up-and-coming riders including 2018 Olympic Slopestyle gold medalist Red Gerard. He was on the Slopestyle alternate list at XG Aspen 2018 and makes his debut at XG Norway 2018 after winning the "Ticket to X Games" prize at the World Rookie Tour Finals in Austria in April 2018.
