Is anyone participating this weekend or previously been to the event? I am heading down tomorrow for my first event in Japan on Sunday and would be interested to hear if anyone has any experiences / advise.
Ive raced it last year.
It Would be my main race for this year also, but covid cases went up and i prefer to dont travel at this moment. I dont know if they are still taking new registrations (deadline was abril 30th, postponed to June 2nd).
Because of Covid, there will be "Wave starts" every 30minutes, like it was last year. Like, you choose to start between 8h and 8h30. You line up. The timer starts as you cross the gate and stops at the top.
Rankings should be available online a few days after the race
I am doing it this year also. 7th wave I hope the rain is not to bad. two years ago it was raining at the top and the decent was so cold I glade I had some gear but it was not adequate was so cold while getting the results I could not stop shaking.
