While I swear the timing is coincidental, I finished this series today, same day as the Tour de France concluded. For something that got so little attention I really thought it was quite good. I got a little tired of all the flashbacks during the race, the race lasted too long, and it was a bit anti-climatic how the story just abandoned Shinozaki for three eps so close to the end. But on balance it was a pleasantly off-center sports anime, with rather interesting characters. The potential for a second season is obvious, especially with the manga ongoing, but I don't expect we'll see one.
