“Onoda Sakamichi is a rather timid, anime-loving first-year student at Sohoku High School. Upon entering high school, he tried to join the anime research club, but after meeting Imaizumi Shunsuke, a renowned cyclist since middle school, and Naruko Shoukichi, who swept the Kansai cycling championship, he ended up joining the competitive cycling club. All kinds of incidents and rigorous training awaited Sakamichi, but with the support of his many friends and upperclassmen like Kinjou, Tadokoro, and Makishima, he went on to overcome many trials. And as the days went by, the talented road racer inside Sakamichi began to awaken...!
High school students pushing themselves to the limit as they bet everything on their bicycles are about to begin a race of passionate souls!”
