All five cyclists make a desperate sprint for the start-finish line, where the captain has put up the no passing sign. If the first years can cross the line first, they will not only manage to catch the second years, but they will be able to increase their lead on them as long as they continue cycling in the night. The third years watch carefully to see whom will cross first, knowing they will be the best candidates to take to the Inter-High. After the all-out battle, the fourth day of training must be completed in the rain. Onoda has some bad luck when his pedals shatter and force him to walk his bike up every hill. However Onoda has earned the respect of the second years, and Teshima makes Onoda stop. With a little help from Teshima, Onoda gains the needed supplies to reach 1000 km. The only question is can he do so before the clock strikes midnight?
