Downhill Series Japan Stage 4 Niseko Grand Hirafu

Downhill Series is one of Japan's pro mountain biking circuits. There are eight races across the country this year and Niseko-Hirafu was selected as the fourth event stage this year. This is the first time that Downhill Series has come to Niseko, so it's kind of a big deal.

The race is open to riders of all levels, including categories for young male and female riders. The main event is the Pro Class category which offers a ¥100,000 yen prize to the overall winner across each of the stages.
