Meet a Team Rider: Kosma Roy
Introducing our second addition to the family: Kosma Roy is one of the two young urban riders from Montreal, who joinded the KH Factory Team this season. He told us how he wants to change people's perspective on unicycling and how he plans to become one of the world's best riders.
Hey Kosma, welcome to the KH Factory Team! To those of you who haven't heard of you before–who are you?
My name is Kosma, I'm from Montreal and I'm 15 years old. I have now been riding for about three years. I would mostly describe myself as a (huge) street rider but I also really like flatland. With the rest of the Monotréal crew, we made some edits in which we show our best tricks in the streets of Montreal. My goal is to show the world that unicycling is more accessible than people think and that with a little bit of determination, everyone can learn it. When we make unicycle videos, we focus on the tricks, but also on cinematography and on the edit a lot.
What are your goals for this year?
One of my goals is to make lots of nice unicycle edits with new tricks and creative filming. I also want more people to discover the world of extreme unicycling. But my main goal is to become kind of a legend of unicycling, a bit like Kris is.
Fun fact about you?
My quadflips are more consistent than my crankflips.
How do you feel about having made the KH Factory Team?
I'm really really really happy about it. It's a dream that came true. I remember when I started unicycling in 2014, Chris Huriwai, Krisz Kovac and Kris holm were my idols (that's a lot of K/Ch ris') And my dream was to be sponsored.
Anything else you’d like the world to know?
Loïc and I will release a ton of huge street unicycling edits in the future, so stay tuned!
Thanks Kosma! We wish you a fantastic riding season and are happy to have you on the team!
