Morikami Daisuke (守上 大輔) is a Pro MTB Rider and Muscle Musical Member who has competed on SASUKE five times.
He debuted in SASUKE 20 and wore #1968. There, he showed decent speed through the first three obstacles. However, on the Jumping Spider, he managed to stick onto the walls but his right foot slipped off the wall and he fell into the water.
After a five tournament absence he returned in SASUKE 26 and wore #65. He performed well clearing the Jumping Spider and most of the other obstacles in one shot. He was good on time when he reached the Tarzan Rope but he wasted too much time on the Rope Ladder. He made it to the bridge of the Rope Ladder with a second left but ran out of time just a few feet from the buzzer. It is the closest time out since the Rope Ladder was introduced in SASUKE 18.
After that, he competed in SASUKE 27 and went at a faster pace in the First Stage, clearing with 25.61 seconds left. In the Second Stage, he struggled on the Unstable Bridge and had less than 15 seconds after he beat the Balance Tank and due to fatigue he fell on the Metal Spin with less than 10 seconds left. He also wore #6 during the tournament, his lowest start position.
He then competed in SASUKE 29, wearing #57. He became one of 21 to clear the First Stage. In the Second Stage, however, he timed out on the Backstream as he was getting out of the tank. Unlike many failures on that obstacle, Morikami actually had little trouble with the force of the jets, blazing through the obstacle. However, he timed out as he was already low on time (the 10 second buzzer sounded just as he was getting into the tank).
He's the only competitor that has competed at least 3 times that has made it further each time he has competed.
