Old habits die hard—just ask KG Canaleta.
Canaleta joined former pro ballers Rico Maierhofer, Jayjay Helterbrand, Sol Mercado, Rain or Shine Elasto Painters guard James Yap, and photographer Lito Sy for an out-of-town ride. Yap and Sy recently featured on the Calamansi audio show Tropang Top Bikes to talk about their motorcycle group Club 9T and bikes that they would like to try out.
Going back, everyone took turns jumping a slope on the trail, but the five-time PBA Slam Dunk champion literally took things to another level. In true Canaleta fashion, he showed off some serious hang time despite being on his 208kg roadster.
Sy exclaimed, “Walang sinabi si Jordan (Gaw) sa’yo! Panis!” while Helterbrand could only comment, “KG, that’s sick, bro!”
When Maierhofer asked Canaleta how it felt, the latter replied, “Amazing!” What about his knees? The Blackwater Bossing player said, “Nangatog, not amazing! Ha ha!”
Fellow five-time PBA dunk champ Rey Guevarra once jumped over teammate JC Intal and his bike for a slam, but can he claim to have jumped with his bike? Well, KG has this motovlog, if anyone needs proof:
