About JAPAN CUP CYCLE ROAD RACE

Japan Cup Cycle Road Race started as a memorial road race commemorating the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) Road World Championships held in Utsunomiya city in 1990. This year proudly marks the 27th annual event.

Since 2008, the Japan Cup has been certified as “Hors class” by UCI which makes it one of the most high-level races. With the criterium race set in central Utsunomiya city beginning in 2010, the Japan Cup has truly become the most important race in Asia.

Please feel the true excitement of cycle road racing brought to you by UCI WorldTeam riders and the best Japanese riders.
