Niseko Hanazono Hill Climb 2017
The 8th annual Niseko Hanazono Hill climb will be held on the 6th August, 2017 (Sunday). Mark your date to enjoy this challenging but rewarding bike race in Niseko this summer!
Last year we saw the bike parade started from Kutchan community hall (altitude 179m) and rode through the Kutchan potate festival venue. It was a short group ride on the nice flat road. The race began from the starting line in front of Kutchan agricultural high school on route 58. The nice wide slope continued to the Weiss gate, about 2 km before the goal line. The slope became steeper after the gate and this section was the key for the contestants to improve their time.
