Ready to rip your legs apart? Registration for the 2018 UCI Niseko Classic has opened up.As usual, there will be three different races: 70km, 140km, and the Time Trial. The races will be held on the weekend of July 7-8. Racers can register here, and registration will be open from December 15th, 2017.
Although the 2017 race was a bluebird day, Niseko Classic racers have been greeted by torrential rain in many past years. As one local put it during the 2016 race, “you might as well have been riding your bike at the bottom of Lake Toya.” On the bright side, the summer sun won’t be cooking the racers down there.
