If you’ve watched Yowamushi Pedal, you would know that cycling is a tough sport, and now six seiyuus who were part of the Yowamushi Pedal voice cast are about to embark on something much like that and they will do it around the same time as the prestigious Tour de France and the Vuelta a España.
Daiki Yamashita (YowaPe’s Sakamichi Onoda and Log Horizon’s Touya), Showtaro Morikubo (YowaPe’s voices Yuusuke Makishima and Naruto’s Shikamaru Nara), Kentaro Itou (YowaPe’s Jin Tadakoro and Bleach’s Renji Abarai), Tsubasa Yonaga (YowaPe’s Sangaku Manami and Free!’s Nagisa Hazuki), Hiroyuki Yoshino (YowaPe’s Yasumoto Arakita and Kill la Kill’s Houka Inumuta), and Hirofumi Nojima (YowaPe’s Koutarou Ishigaki and Toradora’s Yuusaku Kitamura), will all be participating in this race between team Sohoku and a combined Hakone and Kyoto Fushimi team. In fact, they are already training hard for the grueling competition.
The six seiyuus will not only be participating in the race, which will be in two parts, with the first part being in June, which is the same month as when Le Tour de France is taking place, while the conclusion will be broadcast in August, which is when another grueling bike race known as the Vuelta a España is taking place. The six of them will be racing around the Cycle Sports Center in Shuzenji, Shizuoka and will also be talking about the two prestigious races as they are happening in France and Spain
