Get set to push your limits and challenge yourself this summer in Niseko with the 4th Niseko Classic. It's the second year the international cycling event has been officially recognised as a part of UCI Grand Fondo World Series.

Held in Niseko on July 8th and 9th, 2017, the annual road cycling race sees riders enjoy closed roads, clean air and beautiful vistas, with two race categories to choose from: 140km or 70km.

The 140km course includes 2,362m of vertical challenge, leading competitors up the spectacular Panorama Line, then out by the Sea of Japan and back to Hirafu-Niseko.

A 70km race is also available, providing a shorter challenge (1,125m vertical difference) and finishing together at Hirafu Resort. This length course is also open to a women-only race.

The Niseko Classic also provides one of a few opportunities in Asia for bicycle enthusiasts to qualify for the 2017 UCI Gran Fondo World Championship race in Albi, France.

Not only is the Niseko Classic a fantastic way to push your physical limits and to hit new personal bests, but it's also a great way to meet like-minded people from around the world and to experience Niseko in a truly special way.

Registration is now open for this exciting international event and Niseko Central is a proud sponsor of event. As a token of our contribution towards the Niseko Classic, we are offering 10% off all property and room types* to those involved in the event. *Conditions apply.
