Story and background
Sakamichi Onoda is a rather timid, anime-loving first-year student at Sohoku High School. Since the fourth grade, he had been riding his commuter bicycle 90-kilometers to and from Tokyo’s otaku hot spot, Akihabara after school. Upon entering high school, he tried to join the anime research club, 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 trials and rigorous training awaited Onoda, but with the support of his many friends and upperclassmen, the talented road racer inside him began to awaken!
The second season will focus on Inter High bicycle race continuing from the first season of the series! High school students pushing themselves to the limit as they bet everything on their bicycles!
Yowamushi Pedal Grande Road will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in the following territories: United States, Canada, Caribbean, South Africa, and Central and South America.
