I can’t breathe and it is beautiful.
This is my third year coming to Japan, staying at Yatsugatake bicycle studio in Minamimaki village on the Japanese Alps. I am here to race cyclocross and am doing rides people write stories about.
I am a part of something special here, this family of cyclists, racers, photographers, fitters, frame builders, workers and friends.
The sun is shining, it is bitterly cold. The riding is brisk and spirited.
This is an experience all of us will remember fondly.
