I’m ‘racing’ this, along with a mate from here.

For information, I’m told by the organiser that the race has around 60-70 entrants from the 190 capacity (as of Tuesday this week).

Any idea what the segments will be like?

Climbing, descending, rolling or flat?

Cheers, Andy

More expensive than the CX race, but I think it says each stage is around 35 km, so 70 km in total for the long touring race.
Doubt many taxis could take those roads.

Edit: 70 km for the race entry and the long touring entry.

No idea about precise roads yet, but if you check out the Instagram profiles of some of the guys from Rapha Japan, they’ve been test riding roads recently. As such, you can get a bit of an idea about surfaces etc.
