I would definitely be on for that, and am happy to ride in a team, although I am not sure what your view would be on riding with a girl... (Don't worry I won't be insulted if you don't want to!).

Cheers, Tor

@Tuomas - I did the race with @Doug3 in 2014. I was overly dressed and inexperienced in drafting. I got caught out by myself which caused me to work much harder than necessary. I sent a PM to both you and @Doug3 about an entry.

@andywood - Thank You for sharing the report! I am sure I read it before, but was not able to connect the dots. (always appreciate the reports!) Whatever the team, would be a pleasure to meet there!

@TorC - On the contrary, I should be the one asking, whether its ok to ride in the same team.
We have not ridden together, but I have heard tales of the legs.

@TimeTraveler - Thanks! I figured it would be easier to gather a team of #n people and do the entry after that.

I am probably the most inexperienced rider here, but I will work hard to be of some assistance.

Cheers!
Tuomas

Hi TCC,

I am attempting to organize several two member teams to work together during the race to improve results and increase chances of a podium.

Thus far we have two teams prepared to register:
@Doug3 and @TimeTraveler
@TorC and @Tuomas

If you are interested in joining this, feel free to PM me or post here.

Cheers,
TT

Hiya! I am definitely still on for this race. I prefer to do a 2hr slot, so that probably means a 2 person team. Last time I heard @Tuomas was still up for it.

Cheers, Tor

That is a great idea and I truly appreciate the help! Thank you @Doug3

However, looking at the dates, they are both Wednesdays, making my participation impossible. (Also traffic?, did I miss something?)

Also, as soon as I get a reply from TorC I will complete the entry and all good to go!

@Tuomas, good point! What was I thinking:confused:. This is a perfect example of how things go wrong when you mix cognac with posting. I took down the announcement and will post again today, with correct dates and location.

Hi TCC,

I think I have gotten it right this time!

In preparation for the Tokyo Enduro, cycling coach @Doug3 has kindly agreed to lead a training ride on 2/7 and tentatively another on 2/21 to cover fine points of drafting and other racing skills. If you are interested in participating, see ride information that follows;


Location: Oi-futo

Meeting place: Minatogaokafuto Koen Mae at the corner of 316, near the koban (see image below)

Time: 10:00AM

If you plan to come out, just post here in this thread. @Tuomas I hope to see you there!

Cheers,
TT

Took a while, but I finished the entry for myself and @TorC

If it doesn't rain cats and dogs, I will come this Sunday!
