Wow, can't wait for this! My early money is on Sagan and crew! Nice to see Saitema leading the way with these events!

According to the link, the event is on the 26th? Is this confirmed?
I'm pretty devastated as this will be the same weekend as the Giro de Hotaka, which means I will not be able to watch the pros.. =(

I just noticed. Too bad, but would choose riding Hotaka over watching any race. Ill watch the Japan cup crit, so I will see most foreign pros anyway.
