This is the event that will be held during Cyclemode that I was talking about previously - those of us that raced on the weekend were pretty much the crash test riders for this event. (they also intend to hold a CX race at the venue as well during the weekend to really turn this in to a huge cycling event)

The JPT also held another event at Odaiba the month before Cyclemode to see if this location was also suitable for Prologues and Criteriums.

In regards to a Tour Du Saitama - not sure if thats going to happen as the JET and JPT would have been used to test run last season - we may see a citizens race early in the season though if they do decide to make it bigger.
