So I went back to Midoriyama on Sunday for the following regional race meeting:-



I've also found this satellite shot to give you a better idea of the place (the start gate is at the bottom right):-



Here's some of the race action, and there was plenty of it:-

















More later! :daumenhoch:

The last two photos above are from the 1st moto of the elite class (taken from the 1st berm), which provided some more great racing! Here's a series of pics from the 2nd moto, taken from the 3rd berm. Keep your eye on the two riders in 3rd and 4th places:-









Things start to get interesting as they enter the berm, with #1 on the outside and #123 on the inside:-











Needless to say #1 finished last but lived up to his number by winning the next moto and qualifying for the main, which he went onto win! :4_17_5:

Awesome thread Mick. Love the look of the old school style dirt track and hearing about the reaction to your Laserlite. Great pics as well mate. You must have been right in the thick of it. Feeling the BMX buzz again ;)

Thanks Paul! Yeah, am definitely feeling the buzz again. I wouldn't say I've lost the love for old school, but now find myself thinking about and looking at new school race stuff every day, hence the regular updates in this section of the site!! :D

On that note, here's a selection of race bikes that caught the eye on Sunday:-



Love the dropout design on these GTs:-









Tasty, all-carbon Haro, the rider of which crashed out whilst fighting for the lead in the elite class main!

I keep meaning to update this thread with more photos from Midoriyama but you know how it is! ::)

Anyway, the other day I stumbled upon this promo-type bmx video that was shot at Midoriyama. It's a few years old now but nothing much has changed! :daumenhoch:

Been there, seen it, got the t-shirt! :daumenhoch:

Here are a few pics from my last visit. To Midoriyama that is, not the hospital! ::)

Made the trip back to Kanagawa for the JOSF’s final race of the season last weekend. Walking around the paddock, I spotted one of the riders offloading old (as in NOS) JOSF t-shirts from past events. What’s more, they were free, so I quickly grabbed one from the 2008 Night Race. That’s one of the JOSF’s biggest and most popular events of the year, and I’ve raced at the last three. However, what surprised me about this t-shirt is the amount of sponsors on it. Ignoring the JOSF logo and also 3 others from other organisations, I counted 28 company logos. Now I don’t know if they were actually sponsoring or otherwise supporting the event in some way but that’s a huge number! I’ve heard some of the older riders saying that Midoriyama used to be much more popular than it is now and I guess that’s reflected in the t-shirt. 2008 was the BMX racing’s Olympic debut in Beijing, so maybe that had something to do with it. Hopefully the Tokyo Olympics generates a similar amount of support for BMX racing in Japan during the coming year. :daumenhoch:
