2016 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships

Hi, I’m Andy Wood.
Originally from the UK, I have lived on the Japan Sea coast in Niigata for almost 20 years.
I love cycling both recreationally and competitively.
Long rides used to be my thing:

2015 Motegi 7h

・ 2007 to 2017 Tokyo Itoigawa 300km classic champion
Before focusing on the time trialling:

Japan Masters TT 2019 2nd place

・ 2018 time trial japan series champion 
・ 2019 uchinada TT champion, UCI niseko classic TT champion

UCI Niseko Classic TT, 1st place

In 2020 I’m focusing on gravel racing for the first time.
・ Different training
Short hard efforts on the flat, replaced by longer off road efforts.And lots of climbing.

CX debut, 2020 Toyama CX, 3rd place

Ride it like a TT! Toyama CX, 170HR lock on!

・ Different equipment
The search for strong durable equipment is a long process.
· Disc Brakes
· Wheels
· Tires
· Tire Inserts
・ Sealant

Imezi sealant for the win!

This is trial and error.
3 sets of wheels
4 brands of tires
3 brands of sealant
I have been delighted with the performance of Imezi sealant.
It is definitely the best out there.
And now I am excited to ride Imezi wheels too.
I’ll be sharing my impressions of kit, races and all things cycling here.
Please feel free to check my blog too.

The joy of two wheels!

Ride on!
