So far in :
Jerome, Eric, James, mob
long stretches of ups and downs followed by a 400m climb up to Yabitsu (moderately steep), nice and fast downhill follows
Flat thru the wastelands
Followed by a 700m climb up to Hakone
To Atami: the most beautiful downhill road in Japan
To Yamanakako : most gruesome climb up to Mikuni pass, extremely steep & demanding
As most of us are out of shape : competitive.
Should be dry, but cold, in the 0 – 5 degree region.
