About the Road Race Courses

Main article starts here.

The attraction of the cycling road events is experiencing up-close the intensely tough competition between cyclists racing at speeds above 60 km/h. Please give your full attention to these bold competitors aiming for Mt. Fuji during the Tokyo 2020 Games cycling road events.

The athletes begin at Tokyo’s Musashinonomori Park, cycle through Kanagawa and Yamanashi Prefectures, and aim for the finish line on the Fuji International Speedway in Oyama Town, Shizuoka Prefecture. The part of the course running through Shizuoka Prefecture highlights the abundant natural scenery at the foot of Mt. Fuji. And with many difficult climbs and descents, it is known for its high degree of difficulty.

 

Event Schedule

Event dates have not yet been finalized. We will share this information here once it has been confirmed.

Introduction of Race Courses in Shizuoka Prefecture

In Gotemba City

The races will be held in the city streets. World-class cyclists will race through residential areas, past shops and elementary schools. Since this is a roundtrip course circling the base of Mt. Fuji, the competitors will pass through this area twice.

Susono City at the foot of Mt. Fuji

This course takes cyclists around the foot of Mt. Fuji. The magnificent mountain comes into the cyclists’ view as they tear through the forest at rapid speeds. You can enjoy taking in the powerful visual of the competitors racing toward the highest point of the course with Mt. Fuji straight ahead of them.

Myojin Pass in Oyama Town

The final stage of the race will be decided here. Having already sped through nearly 200 km, the competitors must overcome this steep slope with an average 10% slope angle as their final challenge. Among cycling fans, many expect Myojin Pass to determine the gold medalist.
