Special guest Mr.Kataoka.
The snow covered Mt.Furanodake (Mt.Furano) is beautiful.
Dr.K is climbing against the city of Kamifurano.
The Mt.Furanodake is closer and closer.
We climbed up to the altitude 1100m talking together but at this altitude, K began to ride seriously.
When reching the altitude of 1200m, the snow appeared on the road although it's already May. A car which couldn't climb up because its tires were spinning because of snow has completely blocked the road at the altitude of 1250m falling back. K had to stop to avoid this car.
However, K arrived first at the Mt.Tokachidake Hot Springs of which the altitude is 1280m.
A mitnute 10 seconds later, Mr.Kataoka arrived.
2 minutes 50 seconds later from the head, Dr.K arrived. He had to stop as well because of that car falling back.
The landscape is still that of winter at this altitude.
We commenced the descent.
K is leading as usual.
Dr.K is pursuing him.
K won the descent.
Dr.K arrived 20 seconds later.
And 30 seconds later from K, Mr.Kataoka arrived.
