Niseko Classic 2018 Registration Now Open

Get ready for the 5th Niseko Classic in 2018; a truly international cycling event in Japan.

It's on again! The 5th Niseko Classic will be held in Niseko in July 2018 and registration is now open.

Cyclists from all around the world are invited to participate in this now annual event in Niseko, Hokkaido, with the event held on July 7th and 8th. It is the third year that the Niseko Classic is officially recognised as a part of UCI Grand Fondo World Series.

Being the only World Series Gran Fondo event in Japan, and offering entrants a challenging course with closed roads and breathtaking scenery, the Niseko Classic is quickly gaining a reputation as Hokkaidoʼs most exciting race.

Last year's race saw participant numbers increase 28% from 2016 with 93 riders from 16 different countries.


A beautiful desintation for the international cyling event.

New to 2018, introducing a Time Trial race on Saturday 7th July, with the 70km and 140km races on Sunday 8th July. There is also a Fun Ride Event available on the Saturday, with the cycling festival (food, drinks, music, cycling gear shops and giveaways) running over the weekend.

Please note race entry numbers are limited, so please enter early not to miss out! Neither the Time Trial nor Fun Ride are UCI GFWS qualifier events.
