Japan sends team to the Carnivals

Points / Pursuit champion to compete

Former French Cycling Champion Frederic Mange who won three World Keirin Championships and is now National Director of the Japan Cycling Federation has notified the Sports Carnival Association of Tasmania that Japan will be sending a team of four elite cyclists to compete in the Union of Cyclists International sprint series to be held at this year’s Christmas Carnivals. The series will carry qualification points for the Beijing Olympics and carnival organizers are delighted that Japan will be sending a team of cyclists.

Japan’s participation is a great win for the sprint series and the carnivals in general. Cycling racing at this year’s carnivals should reach a new level and deliver a boost to the carnivals. The Association is hopeful of announcing other competing teams for the sprint series in the next few weeks. The Australian Institute of Sport has already confirmed its intention to send a team of elite cyclists for the sprint series...

The Japanese team will be made up of three male and one female cyclist. Frederic Mange has confirmed Japans cyclists will be:

Satomi Wadami - the current world B Women's Champion for points race and multiple Japanese Champion for points and pursuit racing.

Travelling with her will be :

TANAKA Haruki – Professional Keirin rider who is a specialist in keirin and track time trial events.

TSUCHIYA Masato- sprint specialist.

SAKOMOTO Takashi- student of the Japanese Keirin school; and recently finished 5th in the junior world keirin championship.
