I am sure everyone got their envelopes today: TCC mountain goats, it's Kusatsu time again!

I don't think that the race needs further introduction, but here are the accounts of TCC's participation in the previous two years:

2008 and 2009

The official websites are maintained by Kusatsu Onsen and Sports Entry. The race will be held on April 18, 2010. Internet registration starts on January 1, phone registration on January 4, 2010, entries will close on March 25, 2010.

As the "Tour de Kusatsu" is in fact Travis' very own domain, I will leave the drumbeating and the KT scheduling up to him. :)


(...... I just copy and paste Thomas' announcement in last year.:warau:)

I will register accommodation for April 17th.
Please let me know you will need it or not.

No parade run before the race in this year........:cry:

Hi Sora-san,

Even I don't have any hillclimb race experience, I'll go for it. :)
Could you add the accommodation number for me? And, it'll be great help to
have a advice from you.

Thanks,
Kimm

We'll join!

Hi Sora-san,

My wife Emi & I would like to join and stay at the Kouakan Ryokan with y'all. I am not strong in the hills but I think it will be fun to give it a go! Just got back from 814km tour to Takamatsu! Including the climb up Hakkone. That was fun - except for the bus drivers trying to squish me. We also did the Fuji Eco Ride this year. We're planning a bicycle Henro in March. Anyway, put me down for 2 if that is ok?

Best Regards,

Andrew Eickhoff

p.s. Check out the new charity I am starting in Tokyo. Know anybody that would like to help with translating? I am setting up the website now.

Ganbatte!!!

Hi all,

I had been soooooooooooo looking forward to Tour de Kusatsu, but Alan & I will not be able to participate this year, because our friend's wedding will clash with the race. What a shame:(
Hope you all can improve your time, more over, record your best time:bike:

草津をとっても楽しみにしていたし、今年は5位以内を狙いたかったのですが・・・友人の結婚式と重なり参加できません:( すご~く残念:eek:uch:
レース当日はボルネオからエールを送りますね~
がんばれ。

Dear Sora-san,

I have one more lady to add to the accommodation list. I wish that I can always be this popular with the ladies. :cool:

Mika Tokairin

All four ladies will be happy to share a room at the ryokan.

Thanks so much!

Kusatsu HillClimb, registered

Hello Sora-san,

This is Mikio and am new here. Andrew recommended me I register for TCC and contact you about the Kusatsu HillClimb. I also registered for the first time this year, and was wondering if you could stay with you too at the 小島屋旅館.

I've beenn riding since 2007 but have never really participated in any races. Kusatsu in going to be my debut race!! I'm really looking forward to the race and I also want to get involved in this community a lot more!

Could you please count me in at the ryokan as well?
Thank you for organizing!

Best regards,
Mikio
