The welcoming race begins. Onoda is excited about the prospect of facing off with Imazmi and Naruko, but he quickly realizes he stands no chance against the others with his mommy bike. Onoda refuses to give up, even when the captain comes up in the recovery vehicle and demands Onoda pull over. Onoda thinks the captain wants him to quit. Little does Onoda realize he is about to gain a great equalizer that could help propel him to the front as long as he can keep his balance. Onoda is given the team's spare road racer, but with only a limited amount of time to get used to it, will Onoda be able to go on?
