Training Report - Kenashi Pass 19
Dr.K and Tesseract participated in this training. It was minus 4 degrees Celsius at the Kenashi Pass. A very hot day because of a depression situated in the north of Hokkaido.
This day is the first training at the Kenashi Pass in this season. We've found out that they have constructed a new central reservation during the summer.
In the climb, the snowfall became stronger.
The road sign you see in this video was installed during the summer.
Usually during the training, we talk a lot but this time, as the snowfall was strong, we remained untalkative. We climbed till the final approach to the Kenashi Pass together talking a little however. In the final climb to the summit, Dr.K dropped.
Tesseract arrived first at the Kenashi Pass.
Dr.K arrived to the summit 20 seconds later.
We began to descend.
The state of snow on the road isn't so superb. So he doesn't speed.
Dr.K descends snowly as well.
Tesseract caught up a car which had passed him. He used this car as windshield for about a kilometre. So he gained a lot of advantage on Dr.K.
Tesseract won this descent. And Dr.K arrived 3 minutes 2 seconds later to the foot of the mountain.
In the flat section, at first, Tesseract led. After that, Dr.K tried to break away but easily caught up by Tesseract.
So the match is going to be decided solely in the sprint. For a brief moment, Tesseract took the head but didn't last longer.
Dr.K won in the sprint.
After eating lunch in a restaurant in Tokiwa, we began to climb the Kenashi Pass via a narrow road which is parallel to the National 393.
However, the snowremoval state was very bad. Dr.K renounced to ride the bike in the deep snow and decided to walk.
But Tesseract didn't give up. He is still on the saddle.
In the climb to the Kenashi Pass, the blizzrd became worse. We climbed in the wind sounds. (Sorry for the quality of this video. The cameraman accidentally pushed the digital zoom button during the filming.)
In the final climb to the Kenashi Pass, Dr.K dropped and arrived to the summit 35 seconds later to Tesseract. And we regrouped at the summit and descended a bit and climbed again to the Second Kenashi Pass.
Tesseract arrived first to the Second Kenashi Pass.
Dr.K arrived 1 minute 14 seconds later.
We descended hearing thunder. Tesseract won the descent with 60 seconds gap.
