Gunma yesterday.


The JCRC races seem to be losing popularity which is a shame as they are really well organised, friendly and with a variety of race categories, including kids' races.

Give them a whirl!

Congratulations. It's a course that never suited my heavy frame.

Would be good to see more people do the JCRC races, that's for sure. I used to do a lot of them, but now that I'm in my 50s... it's a lot harder (for me) to race.
The 50s podium hogs are friends of mine and know how hard they train... wish I had the time.

I encourage anybody who hasn't raced or those who haven't raced in a while to give them a go... Do an X class race and see how you go.
Join a club if TCC is not going to be there to support you... I made a ton of Japanese friends by racing, from my team as well as other teams.

Helped me learn Japanese a lot as well as have plenty of groups to ride with on weekends...

Yep, give them a whirl....you don't have to win...I DNF more than I podiumed...
