Where abouts in Saitama?

Is it the course they used for the Tokyo Enduro next to the Arakawa?

alright I just got back from work and here are the details! They aren't on the Y's road website just yet but once i get to a scanner I will put the flyer up here.

Location : saitama toda city (埼玉県戸田市)at the Toda green park.
Event: Y's International 9th annual Y's Cup lakeside 4 hour Enduro.
Course: the course is a 5 km circuit around the lake at Toda City green park.

Registration: Registration is from now until october 16th. At your local Y's shop they have a registration form. Entry fee is 6,300 yen per team(maximum of 4 people per team). I already have a form so if some of you guys wanna join me I can fill it all out for us and turn it in (My manager will only give me that day off if the team name is my store name I hope you guys don't mind).

Race catagory: they have a classification for every class of bike. I would assume we would join the road bike or road pro challenge depending on how we feel.

Also we get to meet a professional rider by the name of Fukui Hiderou ( I think I got that right) as well as other reps for Bridgestone, Colnago and Cannondale. This will also be a bike Demo so there will probably be some new bikes for us to drool over.

If you are interested let me know, and once again I will put up a PDF of the flyer as soon as I can!

Tim, thanks for luring me out of hiding. This is just about the right treat to do so. Hopefully I will get the remaining stitches removed tomorrow, marking it two weeks of the bike.
This looks like a great event and cheap to boot, but the inaugural track race at Shuzenji CSC is on the same day -> hard to decide.

Why doesn't TCC just sign up 5 two person teams with fantasy names and matches proper teams on the day? Wasn't that our consensus after last years enduro?

I can confirm there is a fixie class but I cannot confirm the brake situation. I've look and looked but can't find anything that says "no brakes, no race" but I would assume that they would require them for this event.

OJ: I am open to anyone joining the team. I just hope we would be able to ride a few times before the event to train a little bit. If you wanna join me just send me a pm. There is just basic info needed for the entry form.

Cool! I am jus looking at this as a serious 'fun ride' to rep for later <real> enduro, if we do that again. Agreed - 2person team is plenty. Then we have multiple teams to work together - and won't lose time on the transitions.

So, tentatively - put my name in the ring for:

TCC - Team FG 1 And maybe we can do junken to see who gets paired with whom??

is anyone familiar with the course? I'd tentatively be up for joining a FG team as long as the other member(s) don't expect to win or place. are there any special equipment rules? I'd like to do this in full-on fakenger gear — huge messenger bag, jeans, walkie talkie, alleycat cards in the spokes, latte in the bottle cage...

Hi Patrick - how about:

(Team Options)

Team 1 - TCC 'Fakenger' : Must have full spec (Blue Lug) kit. I'll donate my old Akematsu (complete with chopstick repair) for a rider, if they want. Snagged Dickies, Checks and fake tats a must!

Team 2 - TCC 'Mankini' : Borat stylin! With glue on stache, etc. Riding pimped FG with the deepest drops possible and fake discwheels with Pamela Anderson Baywatch image. And of course - 'The Hoff' in the background.

Team 3 - TCC 'Keirin' : Regulation NJS bikes, GP shorts, Helmets, etc. And , to spice things up - Tire Hiki warm-up.
