Rapha Condor Sharp: Tour of Japan
Photography © Shuhei Takenouchi
The boys in black are currently racing at the 14th edition of the Tour of Japan. Hot off the heels of an extended visit to the USA and some well-earned domestic successes at the Lincoln GP and Shay Elliott Memorial, Rapha Condor Sharp now attempt to make their mark in 日本 (Japan).
The Land of the Rising Sun is not the first place one would associate with pro continental racing, yet this is a major date in the calendar to many eastern-based squads and for a British team to be invited is a prestigious event. The racing style over there might be a touch chaotic but the course will be challenging and Japan, as we've seen from the Yonretto, has some beautiful scenery.
The first two stages have already taken place with Darren Lapthorne currently lying third in the GC. For more detailed race reports and to keep up to date with Rapha Condor Sharp news and stories visit: raphacondor.cc
