    • QUOTES (2)

      • (After their practice race)
        Ryousuke: The result is obvious. On the uphill, the 86 is no match for the 32. On the downhill there is no way your 32 can beat the 86.
        Takeshi: (Angry) What did you say? Are saying my 32 will lose to the 86 on the downhill?!
        Ryousuke: Don't take it personally. I'm just saying what I think.
        Takeshi: You don't have much nerve. Even though your brother lost there's no need to be so intimidated. It's just an 86.
        Ryousuke: Once you race against it you'll see. I'm the only one who can beat him.

      • Iketani: Takumi, I have a favor to ask. Can you let me ride next to you when you do the downhill at Akina?

    • NOTES (2)
