Today's route

I was interested how easy the new bike was for climbing.

Hakuba-Oike station. The start of the climbing. 9:46

Last time it took 2 hours. I wish I could do better.

This is the official start point for the competition.

I could not start well and I felt down here.

Here I could see Tsugaike highlands.

I thought I ran faster than last time.

10:22 Gondora middle station. 36mins so far.

The time was same as last time.

11:32 the backcountry entry point. 1 hour 46mins so far.

The time was worse than last time!

11:51 arrived at Tsugaike Natural Park. 2 hours 5 mins.

The time was same. I was very dissapointed that I could not run faster with the new bike.

A long rest gets me cold. I go down as early as possible.
Beautiful scene of Hakuba village.

I could not change gears for ascending and I felt down twice.

I felt I was more exhausted than the last time. It was a dissapointing ride today.

Late lunch at Hotaru, for buckwheat noodle.
