Tokyo 2020 Test Event Results

Most of the top racers from around the world were in Tokyo today, to compete in the 2020 Test Event ahead of the Olympic games. This event essentially gives everyone a dry run of how things will go down next year at the 2020 Olympic Games. Points still count at this race, and from the feedback, it looks like everyone was a big fan of the track. In previous test events, specifically the 2016 Rio track, athletes refused to race and deemed the track unsafe, forcing the organizers to make changes.

In today's C1 Tokyo 2020 Test Event Results, Sakakibara won in 47.599 ahead of two United States racers - Alise Willoughby 47.635, and Felicia Stancil 48.370.
