Too many races,locations, dates and times to translate. Just print off those pages and show them to somebody when you get here... Unless you can tell me exactly what days you want to see a race... almost a race on every day.

Where will you be staying?
How far do you want to travel?
It won't be like the Olympics. The tracks are filed with elderly men in there 60s 70s & 80s chain smoking (clouds of smoke even out in the open). and gambling. Reminds me a bit like the greyhound races back in Australia.

Lets not forget 京王閣 in Chofu/ Tokyo. Probably the most convenient for someone visiting Tokyo and 10 mins from my house!:bike:

Well, I just realized you said you're not coming until Nov/Dec, and this International Keirin is Oct 19th at Keiokaku in Chofu.

For those that can make it, it should be pretty hot. Even though Theo Bos and Chris Hoy have cancelled, there's still Teun Mulder, Ross Edgar and Shane Kelly so it's officially star-studded.

for that invitational do you think it would be a good idea to buy a ticket? if so how and where would I be able to do that? also what time will it be starting?

Kawasaki Keirin

So I think I understand that Keirin is year round ?
I have almost found the velodrome in Kawasaki. It seems to have EZ train access. Go thru the underground mall to the shuttle bus. I also think there is a big race champion race series at the beginning of March ?
NOT that I care. ANY Keirin is good Keirin as far as I am concerned. I would enjoy the grandma race series.
