I've done two hill climbs, but the last one was about four or five years ago... I might start doing the local ones again, actually.

If you go to Yatsugatake, they actually have a "heavy category". Riders over 75kg. Only in Japan! I always remember the number as it was always my target race weight for the hill climbs...

85 kg would be more like it, hehehe.
I have heard some races had or had 体重別選手権, which is definitely more appealing than a standard hill climb.

I do have quite a few Fatty KOMs ('cause I'm the only person in the area this heavy who rides, hehe).

The 10 kg jumps are a bit unfair: there was a huge difference between 84 kg me and 75 kg me.
