ANA NISEKO CLASSIC
June 16th through 18th, 2023
Two races of 150km and 85km are official UCI Gran Rondo World Series qualifiers. Overseen by the Japan Cycling Federation, the Niseko Classic is the stepping stone to the World Championship in Glasgow, UK.
Riders from all over Japan flock to the fresh air and closed roads to live the spandex dream. Locals have also been training throughout the year to ensure a strong showing and local pride. Come out and participate or just take in the excitement as early summer begins with the Niseko Classic!
Activities on tap include the "Niseko Cycle Festival" held at the main venue Tokyu Grand Hirafu. Cycling-related booths, local restaurants stalls, live music, a kids area, and various other stage events are planned to complement the cycling main event.
150km Road Race
2,609 vertical meters of grueling ups and fast downs. A dynamic course following the Niseko Panorama Line to the Sea of Japan and back to Grand Hirafu. Clean air and stunning scenery are ensured!
85km Road Race
Starting flatter than with a climb this shorter race is still a challenge. A strong finishing kick is needed to hit the 1,426-meter climb at the end. Clean air and stunning scenery are ensured here as well!
15km Time Trial
A 25 km time trial course through Kutchan Town is also a highlight of the weekend. Top performers exceed 40kph and finish in less than 20 minutes. This race is a recognized UCIGFWS qualifier.
