Thanks for the links!You should also look into hillclimbs. They're the cheapest, most frequent, most accessible, safest form of racing here. They're basically the gravel racing of Japan.AJOCC 一般社団法人日本シクロクロス競技主催者協会オフィシャルサイト。日本国内のシクロクロス競技の普及発展、参加のための情報提供の場です。1995年11月に「Cyclocross in...www.cyclocross.jp
You can find many cycling and other events on https://www.sportsentry.ne.jp/ and here https://www.cyclesports.jp/race-event_calendar/ and here https://www.cyclowired.jp/race-event-calendar .
The problem is that there are quite a few events that fall between the cracks.
I will take a look at those sites. Although, we might be doing different events if you're considering gravel racing as "safe" (and unfortunately, cheap, no longer the case in the US) haha. In my experience gravel racing was more dangerous than criteriums, but neither are something I shy away from. And while I love climbing my interest is probably in longer distance road style events of 2.5+ hours.
Of course having said that, I have thought about stringing together a full CX season next year since that seems to me to be the easiest racing to do here in Japan.
