Hi - I am a relatively new CX enthusiast from the U.S. and work will take me to Tokyo and Yokohama in late October to early November. Are there any CX race series in the greater Tokyo area or just the country-wide series I see in the JCX series (http://translate.google.com/transla...=1259&bih=755&rlz=1R2SKPB_enJP373&prmd=ivns)?

I see one on a day I have free, which is the Tohoku CX Project (http://www.tohoku-cx-project.com/). They have a race at Lake Inawashiro. Is that even remotely feasible to travel to for the day or an overnight trip from Yokohama, given nice things like the Shinkansen?

Thanks!
Jason

Next question - I'd need to rent a bike. Seems like an awful lot of hassle to ship my CX bike with me to Japan just for a one-day event, though I suppose I could ride it around other days, which has some appeal. If I rented, any good shops that do so that people recommend?
