Sakhalin bikers will go to Japan

Sakhalin athletes will go to Japan for motocross and enduro competitions, and Japanese bikers will return to Sakhalin in 2015 in response.

The possibility of exchanging sports delegations was discussed in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk by the head of the region's Ministry of Sports and Tourism, Oleg Saitov, director of the Wakkanai city office on Sakhalin Kunito Watanabe and editor-in-chief of the Big tank magazin, Hisashi Haruka. The meeting was also attended by the chairman of the regional federation of motorcycle sports Sergei Maikov.

At the meeting, it was about the participation of Sakhalin athletes in 2014 competitions in motocross and enduro competitions in Japan, as well as the return visit of Japanese motorcycle racers to Sakhalin next year for similar competitions. The Sakhalin side supported the idea and suggested making such exchanges of bikers and holding joint competitions in this sport traditional.

The Japanese side applied for a five-day tour of the Hokkaido-Sakhalin Rally this year and asked for organizational support for the tour. S. Maikov assured that the Japanese bikers will be supported by their Sakhalin counterparts, in addition, a car escort will be organized for the delegation. About 40 Japanese bikers will take part in the race across Sakhalin.
