Cycling anime

Combining my favorite sport and my favorite past time which is anime is surprisingly hard as the sport of cycling isn't the most popular outside of Europe. But thanks to cycling getting bigger in japan in recent years we have now a few to choose from.

First let us start with 2 movie, the Nasu series of movies are simple stories told during a single race following a spanish rider named Pepe Benengeli. The first one is one stage in the vuelta as the main character is fighting in a breakaway. The other one is following a single race in japan.  
The first one (2003) is Nasu: Summer in Andalusia and the other one (2007) is Nasu: A Migratory Bird with Suitcase.

The second choice is a series called Over Drive. It follows a normal boy named Mikoto Shinozaki who is recruited to the schools cycling racing club, Shinozaki has never practiced any sport but soon notices he may have hidden talent for cycling.

The last one I will talk about is the new series Yowamushi Pedal. Like Over drive it follows a cycling newbie; Onoda who is an otaku and is recruited to the schools cycling club. I personally prefer this over Over drive but both are solid series and we cycling fans can't really complain.
