This is All-Japan Championship Road Race Course, which was held on the 27th and 28th of June, 2015 around JR Kurodahara Station in Nasu.
The Men’s Elite Course is an up-and-down hill course riding 15 laps around a 15.9km circuit, while trying to strive for victory.
A blue line is drawn along the road to guide the riders and is called “Champ Road”.
The start and end goal of the All-Japan Road Race is in front of the Nasu Town Sports Center.
During the early sections of the course, you ride in the town around JR Kurodahara Station.
The hardest up-hill section called “Nishizaka no Nobori”(The Nishizaka Ascent) hill climb distance is 600m, with an average gradient of 7.3%
After you go up the short and steep slope of Tomioka, there will be a steep downhill slope.
These up and down parts repeat over and over again and are a good course for training on your bike.
While you ride All-Japan Road Race Course, you can see many “Torii” (a Shinto Shrine Gate) in shrines which are quietly standing still. How many can you find?
On the left-hand side of the course road, the blue lines were drawn to designate the “Champ Road”.
There are also distance signs set every kilometer.
